What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment method that relies on the use of a scalpel to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your skin. This method is essentially a controlled “scraping” of the skin using a sterile surgical blade. Dermaplaning treatments are performed in-office and are done to improve your skin’s smoothness, elasticity, and texture. Along with this, the treatment has been shown to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase serum absorption, and facilitate flawless makeup application.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?
A dermaplaning treatment is very similar to shaving. This treatment involves holding a blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, thereby exfoliating specifically targeted areas. This simple, yet effective process removes dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven. The entire session takes about 30- 45 minutes and results last between 4-6 weeks, depending on hair growth.
What Can I Expect?
This treatment helps revitalize the skin through a unique exfoliation process unlike anything else. This process is simple and will leave your skin glowing and seriously smooth. While you may experience some irritation after your session, this side effect will go away shortly after you leave our centre. The major benefits of this treatment are that it doesn’t involve the addition of any foreign substances into your body, nor does it require downtime.
