What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation of the skin using a sterile blade at a 45 degree angle that is lightly brushed across the skin.
It removes dead skin cells and the fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).
Dermaplaning is not used on the thicker eyebrow hair.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will the hair on my face grow back darker and thicker?
A. No, because Dermaplaning only removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and colour.
Physiologically this cannot happen so please don’t worry about this.
Q. How often should you have this treatment done?
A. Every 4-6 weeks is the recommend time between treatments. The skin needs time to go through its rejuvenation cycle.
Q. Is it safe?
A. This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an properly trained professional. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also no downtime with this procedure.
Q. Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?
A. Dermaplaning is performed by using a gentle scraping motion across the surface of the skin. With other hair removal methods like waxing and threading these can be painful but Dermaplaning is entirely painless.
There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut.
In the unlikely event you do get a small nik or scrape it should heal within 24-48 hours.
