Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment that involves scraping off dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a scalpel to leave your face brighter and smoother. 

What to expect?

An average dermaplaning appointment can last from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the practice, provider, and specific technique (i.e., whether or not they apply a numbing cream first—though it’s uncommon—or if they incorporate a facial first). But in general, during a regular dermaplaning appointment, your provider will gently scrape away the top layer of your skin using a scalpel-like tool and short, feather-like strokes.

Sounds intense, but Dermaplaning is not painful, because the exfoliation is so superficial and the tool barely presses against your skin. 


What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

  • softer, smoother skin
  • brighter-looking appearance
  • smoother foundation for makeup
  • a light exfoliation
  • peach-fuzz removal


Does Dermaplaning cause breakouts?

While you shouldn’t dermaplane with active breakouts, dermaplaning shouldn’t actually cause any additional breakouts. In fact, by removing the buildup of dead skin and excess skin oils from the surface of your pores, dermaplaning may actually help prevent some future breakouts.
