What is Dermaplanning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure in which a trained specialist uses a tool to gently remove the top layer of deal skin cells. This exfoliation method isn’t nearly as intimidating as it sounds. When performed by a skilled professional, it’s quite safe. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive and effective way to achieve brighter and healthier-looking skin. It’s quick and offers immediate results.

About Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning uses a physical process of exfoliation to rid the face of built-up, dead skin cells. The tool that is used for the procedure removes the dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” from the face.

It’s a rather fast and convenient process. In just about 30 minutes, you’ll have brighter and smoother skin. To maintain the results, it’s possible to schedule regular sessions on a monthly basis, though this isn’t necessary for everyone. The dermaplaning procedure itself can be performed by trained doctors, nurses or estheticians. It is meant only for the top layer of facial skin and is not a method of hair removal for other areas of the body, including the nose or eyebrows.


There are a number of benefits that are gained through dermaplaning. Some of these may be a nice surprise. For example, the process of exfoliation triggers cell rejuvenation, allowing your moisturizer and other skincare products to be absorbed more efficiently, thus making them more effective. You also might not have considered the benefits involved in the removal of your peach fuzz hairs. Believe it or not, these fine hairs can collect dirt and oil. Removing them gives you cleaner skin and a smoother foundation for makeup application. Not all exfoliation procedures can remove peach fuzz.


Dermaplaning is a viable skin enhancing procedure for almost anyone. It is important to note that this exfoliation does not cause hair to grow back darker or thicker. Patients with dry skin or rough skin texture tend to experience the best results. Also, you’re a great candidate if you have mature skin, as the rate of cellular regeneration slows with age, often leaving you with a buildup of dead skin cells. Because there are no chemicals involved as with other exfoliation methods such as peels, dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating women.

If you’d like to achieve brighter-looking skin without the worry of unwanted reactions or the use of strong chemicals, you should put dermaplaning on the top of your list. It’s a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve glowing, smooth skin.
