What Is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation procedure on the face. The trained clinician will use a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin and “peach fuzz”. Performed in under 30 minutes, dermaplaning can be done monthly with no downtime.

Dermaplane FAQs

Will my hair grow back thicker?

No. This is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplaning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplaning is designed to treat the vellus hair, which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.


Why is Dermaplaning not ideal for those with Acne?

A dermaplane is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair). If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.


Will I Peel?

When performed by one of our well-trained, and licensed medical aestheticians, dermaplaning is very safe. Occasionally the skin will peel after a dermaplane. If the procedure is done in two-week intervals, the growth cycle of your hair may not be complete; therefore you are treating skin unnecessarily. This may cause peeling to occur.
