Dermaplaning is our choice for quick, painless, and gentle exfoliation that can help give you that glassy, gorgeous complexion.  This treatment, now more common thanks to Instagram and Tikok, effectively removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz, leaving the skin noticeably softer and brighter. Read on to find out more about dermaplaning



What is dermaplaning?

Think of dermaplaning like a magic eraser for your face. It's a non-invasive, utterly soothing procedure where a skilled esthetician guides a sterile surgical scalpel over your skin. This blade gently whisks away those unwanted guests: dead skin cells and that pesky peach fuzz. Dermaplaning goes the extra mile to sweep away the things a regular razor would miss, delivering a duo of delightful exfoliation and hair removal all at once. Performed by a licensed professional, dermaplaning erases dullness to unveil your skin's natural brightness and smooth things over—literally


The Top Benefits of Dermaplaning

Are you craving an immediate glow? Dermaplaning is your go-to golden ticket! This treatment does more than just give your skin a light exfoliation; it brings a noticeable difference to your complexion in just minutes. Our favorite benefits include: 


  • Whisks away the peach fuzz to immediately reveal a brighter, smooth-as-silk texture 
  • Removes dead skin cells to supercharge the absorption of your skincare products, allowing them to delve deeper and hydrate your skin more efficiently
  • Creates a smoother base for your makeup, letting it glide on like a dream

And all this happens in no time with a simple addition to your treatment. Like magic! 

Debunking the Hair Growth Myth

We’ve heard the rumors, but we’re here to set the record straight on dermaplaning and hair regrowth. There's a prevailing myth suggesting that dermaplaning causes hair to grow back thicker and darker, but this is not the case. The vellus hair – or peach fuzz – removed during dermaplaning doesn't have the same characteristics as terminal hair, which is typically thicker. Backed by science, we’re confident that dermaplaning will not result in thicker, darker hair regrowth or produce stubble.
