Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate?

The ideal candidate for dermplaning has aging, dry, rough or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.

Is the treatment safe?

Dermaplaning is extremely safe when performed by a properly trained skincare professional. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.

Does it hurt?

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin's surface. Unlike waxing or threading, dermaplaning is entirely painless.

Will it make the hair on my face grow thicker and darker?

No, there are different types of hair that grow on the body. Vellus hair is found on most parts of the body besides the scalp, underarms & pubic region. Vellus hair grow back at same rate & texture.

How long is the treatment? 

Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30 - 45 minutes!

How often can I have it done?

The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.

What is the difference between dermaplaning and dermabrasion?

Dermaplaning removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin from the skin, microdermabrasion also exfoliates the skin but not as thoroughly or deeply as dermaplaning does.

What is the benefit of adding a chemical peel with dermaplaning?

By removing the initial layer of dead skin through dermaplaning the chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sunspots and environmental damage.

A treatment that uses a medical scalpel to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin and remove fine facial hair commonly known as "peach fuzz". It can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion or along with them for enhanced results.


This procedure will give your skin a more radiant appearance. Following the treatments, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper in turn making them more effective.
