Dermaplaning is a safe, effective way to rejuvenate the overall health and appearance of your skin. It is a non-invasive, easy, fast and painless approach to helping your skin stay refreshed and young. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently 'shave' the skins surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair/peach fuzz. This hair can trap dirt and oil causing breakouts and a dull complexion.
The process of dermaplaning is one of:
- Removing dead skin cells. - Minimising old skin scars from acne or sun damage. - Smoothing your skin, removing fine hairs. - Reducing the visibility of large pores or skin pigment variation. - Releasing clogged pores and encouraging your skin to produce new skin cells and collagen for a more youthful appearance.
The results are immediate and there is very little down time. Unlike other exfoliating treatments such as microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning is suitable for nearly all skin types. The physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate the skin.
A mild Salicylic Peel is performed at the end of the treatment, which is suitable for all skin types, particularly dry, oily and acne prone. It controls oil production, reduces the size of pores and unifies skin tone.

No, dermaplaning uses a blade which moves superficially across the surface of the skin. There is no cutting or breaking of the skin to cause pain or discomfort.
No, this is not physically possible. The soft, vellus hairs simply grow back in a normal growth cycle exactly the same way.
Dermaplaning an extremely safe procedure when carried out by a trained professional. The skin is prepared for the treatment and the blade is moved across the skin which is held taut and gently scrapes the skin. The risk of cutting is very minimal.
This treatment can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment removes 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells. The treatment works when the full cycle of skin regeneration is complete.
Almost all skin types can be treated with dermaplaning , but it is imperative that you give a full medical history before proceeding, as the skin's condition is an important factor.
