What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair better known as “peach fuzz.” Our Aestheticians use a tool called a dermatome, which looks like an electric razor, and moves it back and forth at a 45 degree angle to scrape off the top layer of dead skin. This treatment is commonly combined with other treatments, like a facial or chemical peel.

How often should I get Dermaplaning?
We recommend waiting four weeks between your dermaplaning appointments. This time between appointments allows your skin to complete it’s normal rejuvenation cycle, which is thirty days, before having the top layer removed again.
Can anyone get Dermaplaning?
People who suffer from acne or have excess oil should not receive dermaplaning. The reason why you want to avoid this is because once the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could spread the acne.
