Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation. It removes dead skin cells on the outer most layer of the skin as well as peach fuzz hair. Your skin will reflect light to give you a natural glow as well as feel and look smoother, more supple and vibrant.


Benefits of Dermaplaning

  • Helps skin absorb products.
  • Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Increases the skin's ability to absorb moisture products.
Who can perform dermaplaning?

A licensed aesthetician who has been professionally trained can perform the treatment. Since state laws vary - please check with your state board and professional liability insurance company before performing any new treatments.


What is the technique?

This technique is safely performed by using a specialized sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the blade at a 45 degree angle.


Is it safe?

It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician utilizing the DermaplanePro tool.


Once the vellous hair is removed will it grow back thicker?

No, this is physiologically impossible.  The soft, fine vellous hair will grow back slowly - usually in about 4 weeks.


There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies:

  1. Vellous hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body.
  2. Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas.


Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.


What area can be treated?

Dermaplaning is performed on the face only. You should not dermaplane the eyelids, throat or chest. Sometimes, technicians who are still learning practice on arms and legs as the skin is tougher in these areas.


How often can this procedure be performed?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 28 days before repeating the treatment.


Can dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?

Yes. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to prep the skin for a chemical peel.


Does the skin actually peel from dermaplaning?

No, When dermaplaning is performed as a prep for a chemical peel the visible exfoliation that the client sees will be as a result of the peel used in the treatment.


Who can be treated?

All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. Typically clients over 35 are the best candidates and will return for regular treatments. It is highly addictive! Men can be dermaplaned on non-beard areas only but most prefer microdermabrasion.


Who cannot be treated?

Clients with active acne outbreaks should not be treated until lesions are healed. Dermaplaning is great for diminishing acne scars but should not be performed during active outbreaks. Clients with bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting should not be treated. Clients with diabetes not under control by diet or medication should not be treated. Clients undergoing cancer treatment should also not be treated.
