What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of manual exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This procedure is frequently used to prepare the skin for treatment or makeup application. Removing about 3-4 weeks of buildup on the skin, per treatment, allows for deeper penetration of the active ingredients in various other esthetic treatments such as lasers and chemical peels.


What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, improve the skin’s texture, reduce skin dryness and provide an instant glow! These benefits are a result of the removal of the dead skin cells and vellus hair at the skin’s surface that encourages the turnover of healthy skin cells.

What skin types or skin concerns are suitable for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is safe and effective for most skin types. It is recommended if your concerns are sun damage, dry or dull skin, fine lines and acne scars. Pregnant women can also benefit from its manual exfoliation while avoiding harsh chemicals, such as acids. It is not recommended for those with sensitive skin, due to possible irritation. It is also not recommended for those with active acne breakouts or cystic acne. Those with highly oily skin should not undergo dermaplaning, as this can cause further oil buildup due to the lack of vellus hair for oil dispersion.

How do I prep before dermaplaning?

Use of retinol should be discontinued about 1 week prior to treatment. All facial makeup should be removed prior to treatment.

What does post-dermaplaning care consist of?

After a dermaplaning treatment, one should avoid strenuous activities, hot tubs and excessive UV exposure for 24 hours. SPF should be regularly applied following the procedure.

Will the removed hair grow back thicker and/or darker?

No, there will be no change to the hair thickness or colour when it grows back following the procedure. Dermaplaning simply removes the vellus hair from the skin’s surface without disrupting the hair follicle, so excess hair growth will not be stimulated. The hair will slowly grow back as “peach fuzz” over the course of 4 weeks.
