What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning, often called blading or microplaning is a cosmetic procedure that uses an exfoliating tool to remove dead skin cells and bothersome peach fuzz from your face. During this professional treatment, a sterile surgical-grade scalpel glides in small strokes leaving the skin ultra smooth, fresh and glowing. Since vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin buildup can get in the way of product penetration and smooth makeup application, this treatment offers a gentle solution to combat these issues. Some common misconceptions are that hair will grow back thicker and darker, this is simply not true.
*Dermaplaning alone $90 (add a facial for $60 or tier 1 or 2 chemical peel for $70-$90).
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
A single session of dermaplaning is able to remove up to 3 weeks of dull dead skin to reveal a healthy, dewy complexion. Dermaplaning uses no chemicals, therefore causing less irritation. It’s a suitable treatment for everyone including patients with sensitive skin, broken capillaries and mild rosacea. As we age, our skin turn over rate slows down significantly. This is a safe and effective technique that leaves your skin with a smooth, fresh look with no downtime.

How Is A Professional Treatment Different From One I Can Do At Home?
At-home dermaplaning (aka…shaving) treatments are not able to achieve the same depth as dermaplaning administered by a trained professional. Treatments done in a medical setting remove oil and buildup from the lower layer of skin. Therefore, reaching that layer at home isn’t attainable with devices purchased online or in retail stores.
A chemical peel or facial may be added to your dermaplaning treatment to enhance results.
