WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that gently scrapes off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands. “I’ve been doing it for over a year now and have never had a problem,” says Permanent Makeup Artist Diane. Diane is also an eyebrow threader who continues to thread people’s eyebrows, upper lip, and chin. Diane feels as though threading the whole face is too painful, unnecessary and dermaplanning is a better option.
Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
Wondering if you should try dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz.
- WHO IS DERMAPLANING FOR?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with very acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
- HOW IS DERMAPLANING DONE?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.
- HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About 30 minutes
- WHAT IS THE AVERAGE COST OF DERMAPLANING?
$100 to $200. Please call our salon for more information and for our special prices.

There are no side effects and zero downtime.
- WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?
You will immediately look more radiant with an evener skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
- RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
- ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT REMOVING THE HAIR ON YOUR FACE?
Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair (that’s the science-y name for clear or white soft fine facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment.
