What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is one of the least invasive skin rejuvenation techniques available. This is a simple, in-office treatment wherein a specialized scalpel is used to gently scrape away dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s outermost layers. This treatment provides gentle exfoliation of the uppermost layers of the skin, paving the way for smoother, softer skin underneath. Since this treatment doesn’t involve using chemicals, external products, or needles, it’s also suitable for patients with sensitive skin or pregnant women.

  • Peach fuzz on the skin
  • Fine lines on the skin

How it Works

Dermaplaning is one of the simplest skin rejuvenation treatments available. The physician or cosmetic provider uses a specialized 10-gauge scalpel to scrape away the dead skin cells and debris from the uppermost layers of the skin. The scalpel is moved at a gentle, 45-degree angle to scrape away the peach fuzz and dead skin without breaking the skin tissues. This treatment opens up the pores of the skin, making you look brighter and more radiant. Furthermore, it also increases your skin’s receptivity to makeup or cosmetic products.

Your Dermaplaning Journey


Dermaplaning is a simple, in-office procedure that concludes within 30 minutes. During the treatment, the cosmetic provider or physician gently scrapes a 10-gauge scalpel against your skin at a 45-degree angle. As the scalpel moves against your skin, it removes the dead skin cells, debris, makeup residue, peach fuzz, and impurities from the clogged pores. In doing so, it makes your skin look brighter and more radiant.


Dermaplaning doesn’t involve any downtime or recovery period. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment while enjoying a glowing, bright complexion. You should avoid additional skin exfoliation and strenuous workouts for at least 24 hours, but you can resume all other activities. This is one of the only skin rejuvenation treatments suitable for patients with sensitive skin because it’s completely safe and comfortable.


Dermaplaning produces instant results. Your skin will look softer, smoother, and healthier by the time you leave the medical spa. You may experience mild redness, sort of like your face is flushed, for a few hours, following which your skin will look radiant. This is the perfect treatment just before a major event or photoshoot. You can repeat the treatment every two weeks.
