What is DermaPlaning, and is it for me?

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that involves gently scraping the surface of the skin with a surgical scalpel in order to gently remove any dead skin cells and reveal smooth, clear, radiant skin.

Dermaplaning is one of the most effective, affordable, dermatologist-backed facial treatment options out there, and has been made even more popular thanks to viral social media posts demonstrating the results.

What is the procedure like?

Dermaplaning is somewhat similar to shaving your face - the primary difference is that it’s performed using professional tools and highly specialized technicians. Using a device like the one in the above image, peach fuzz is far from the only thing removed; Dermaplaning treatments eliminate both facial hair and dead skin cells to make your face feel baby-soft, and provide an even, smooth base for any makeup. It’s like a turbo-charged exfoliator!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Dermaplaning right for me?

Dermaplaning results can vary for everyone, but you can expect to see a smoother surface with zero peach fuzz, as well as brighter-looking skin after your Dermaplaning appointment.

Will the facial hair grow back?

Yes, your facial hair will grow back at the normal rate at which it grows.

Are there any other benefits?

Actually, yes! Because Dermaplaning removed all of your dead skin cells, your daily skincare products will better penetrate when you apply them, which makes them all the more effective.

What's the difference between Dermaplaning and me shaving my face at home?

Dermaplaning is not thesame as shaving. An at-home treatment using a razor does not result in the same effect as a professional treatment with a trained provider, like we offer at Stella Kim Artistry.
