What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning assists to reveal smoother, firmer and healthier skin.

It’s a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for your skin, where a special instrument is used to shave away the uppermost layers of your skin.

Dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of acne scars or other skin imperfections by revealing newer, undamaged skin. It can make your skin look younger; and prolong signs of ageing. Some people also use dermaplaning for hair removal on their face, however, it can be done anywhere on your body. This is only a temporary fix because your hair will grow back.

Consider dermaplaning if you have skin concerns such as:

Acne scars
Actinic keratosis (scaly skin patches that can lead to skin cancer)
Dull or dry skin
Peach fuzz (light, soft hair on your face)
Skin damaged by sun exposure
Fine lines (wrinkles)

Some people with preexisting skin concerns should talk to our therapists beforehand if you have any of the below:

An active case of acne
Cold sore outbreaks
Eczema
Moles, freckles, skin tags or other skin growths
Psoriasis
Skin burns, such as those from radiation therapy
Skin rashes (contact dermatitis)

You can have multiple procedures to achieve your desired result, however, it’s important for your skin to heal completely between treatments. We will help guide you through the number and timing of this treatment process.
