Dermaplaning For Smooth Skin

What is Dermaplaning?

To be honest, there’s not much to it – but the results are impressive. Dermaplaning is a form of physical exfoliation which makes the skin look brighter and feel softer and smoother. It’s the process of using a rounded, bendy blade (don’t be scared of the word ‘blade’!) to shave away peach fuzz (vellus hair) and the top layer of dead skin cells that sit on the surface of the skin which can make for a dull and dry complexion.

Do you want clear skin?

While the skin is pulled taut, the dermaplaning tool is held at roughly a 45° angle and lightly skimmed over the skin in short motions, taking away the hair and dead skin. And that’s basically it!

Not only does dermaplaning provide a gentle exfoliation – but it also makes your skin perfect for applying makeup. This technique is great for pigmentation sufferers. It helps your skincare penetrate better, and makes your skin freakishly smooth (because it’s totally hairless), meaning your makeup will sit PERFECTLY.

What about Face Stubble?

Admittedly, this isn’t a new-new skin-perfecting technique. Asian women have been using Japanese facial razors to remove vellus hair (fine facial hairs known as peach fuzz) and dead skin cells for centuries.

Don’t do it if you have full-blown breakouts on your face. The skin should be somewhat smooth and acne-free for a safe Dermaplaning experience. Shaving does not cause extra hair growth or make a person’s face hairier, this is actually a myth. It simply blunts the end of the hair making it feel thicker and coarser, and the hair will continue to grow like that while being shaved.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

The benefits of dermaplaning are definitely worth the five minutes every week or so you’ll need to spend. It evens out your skin tone and texture, leaving you with brighter, more glowing skin.

It helps increase cell turnover and slough away potentially pore-clogging dead skin cells. And because you don’t have all those dead skin cells in the way, your skin is able to drink up your other skin-care products more effectively.

I mean really, what’s stopping you from doing it already?!


Pre-dermaplaning: make sure you don’t have tons of pimples or breakouts and are not menstruating. It will really irritate the skin. Try to go when you have the clearest skin you can have. I like to do this when my period is over, if possible. Make sure your face is cleansed, you have no makeup on, & arrive wearing a hat. You’ll have no SPF on so you’ll want to protect yourself.

During Dermaplaning

You can expect to lay on our treatment bed for about 20-25 minutes. It doesn’t hurt- I actually think it feels good. Imagine finally reaching that itch in the middle of your back that’s been bugging you all day. It feels like scratching an itch you’ve been dying to reach. It feels good!


Since there is no downtime needed, after your treatment you are fine to continue your day as you normally would. We will assess your skin to determine what creams or serums that can help in rejuvenating your newer, healthier skin. It will be important to stay out of the sun immediately after the treatment. When you’re completely done, we will apply a generous amount of sunscreen. Your face will be exfoliated, which we love, but with nothing on it – you will be extra sensitive to the sun.

Did you know…?

Shaving and dermaplaning are kinda the same things except dermaplaning is with a surgical-grade razor SO YOU DEFINITELY should see a professional for this. Our dermaplaning treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, which makes it great for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin in a way that won’t require long downtimes or harsh, abrasive chemicals.

As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting our skin’s collagen production, we can benefit from these treatments no matter what age we are.

You will most likely be a good candidate if you are looking to improve your skin from the following:

  • Excessive peach fuzz
  • Dullness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blemishes
  • Acne scars
