Bacteria, dirt, oils and dead cells can all build up on the skin, making it appear unhealthy, worn, tired and dull. Maintaining the skin’s health is essential for an appealing image. Thankfully, it’s possible to refresh and revive your image by exfoliating the skin with a dermaplaning treatment. That drab, worn-out look can be a thing of the past.

What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a noninvasive exfoliating treatment that removes dead and damaged cells, excess oils and dirt from the upper layer of skin. The treatment utilizes a sterile surgical blade that’s moved gently across the skin in an upward motion. With each pass, worn skin cells are removed, which prompts the regeneration of healthier, new cells. The treatment is also often used for the removal of short hairs, sometimes referred to as ‘peach fuzz,’ which are known to keep unwanted bacteria and oils on the face that further skin irritation and blemishes. This treatment is excellent for anyone seeking to make their skin have a youthful glow. With no downtime and few side effects, dermaplaning is a quick and safe procedure that’ll make the skin healthy once again.
Ideal Candidates for Dermaplaning
While other treatments, such as laser and light treatments, have restrictions for the types of skin they can be performed on, dermaplaning doesn’t. Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment for men and women of any skin tone and type. Concerns that dermaplaning can address include:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Dry or rough skin textures
- Blemishes, such as blackheads
- Enlarged, clogged pores
- Uneven complexion
- Superficial hairs, or ‘peach fuzz’

During an initial consultation, your concerns will be reviewed, and if dermaplaning is a suitable treatment will be decided. In some cases, additional treatments may be recommended to further results. Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that works well with microdermabrasion, microneedling and a chemical peel.
The Dermaplaning Procedure
During the dermaplaning procedure, your skin will be cleansed, and the sterile blade will then be moved slowly along the skin at a 45-degree angle. As it passes, debris, dead cells, and peach fuzz will all be removed from the skin’s outer layers. A healthier, smoother skin will gradually be revealed during the process. Your aesthetician may adjust your head’s position to ensure that the blade moves evenly across the treated area. A mild tingling sensation may be experienced, but it’s generally tolerable and shouldn’t be worried about. The entire process generally takes 30 minutes to complete. Afterward, a soothing ointment will be applied to soothe the skin and relieve any discomfort.
Dermaplaning Recovery and Results
After treatment, there may be some mild peeling and redness that’ll last for several hours. However, this is normal. It’s the skin undergoing the regenerative process to produce new cells, creating a smoother and softer appearance. The results will be noticed immediately after treatment, defined by a glowing complexion. Because each person is unique, how long results last depends, but typically it’ll last for four to six weeks. Patients who have a dermaplaning treatment and are satisfied with their results are encouraged to have subsequent sessions to maintain their results.
