What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a medical scalpel to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”, technically called “vellus” hair.
It can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion or along with them for an enhanced result. This procedure will give your skin a more radiant appearance. Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper in turn making them more effective.

How to Prepare?
Dermaplaning takes around 30 minutes.
It’s best to avoid exfoliating your skin 3 days before. You should also try to avoid direct sunlight or tanning.
There’s no downtime needed to let your skin heal. We recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a moisturizer afterward. That’s because your skin may be more sensitive.
You can do dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks. But it’s important to remember that its often done as a combined service with other treatments.
