What is it?

Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation technique that focuses on deep exfoliation, peeling away the outermost layers of the epidermis. This skin rejuvenation technique involves scraping away the uppermost layers of the skin and the dead skin cells using a 10-gauge scalpel. It doesn’t include any chemicals, injections, or other harsh techniques.

This treatment removes all the makeup residue, debris, dirt, oils, and “peach fuzz” from the skin’s surface and clogged pores. The dead skin cells are also removed, making your face appear bright, luminous, and youthful. Unclogging the pores minimizes breakouts and improves your skin’s ability to retain nutrients, vitamins, and serums.

Who is it for?

Dermaplaning is suitable for anyone with dull and tired-looking skin due to clogged pores, oils, debris, and dead skin cells. It’s worth noting that dermaplaning is one of the few skin rejuvenation procedures suitable for pregnant women because it doesn’t include any chemicals or foreign substances. It’s also suitable for those with sensitive skin.

What can I expect?

The dermaplaning procedure is fairly simple, and it doesn’t necessitate topical or local anesthesia. The cosmetic provider uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape away the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your skin, running the scalpel against your skin at a 45-degree angle. The entire treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

Dermaplaning doesn’t involve any downtime or recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your session, though you should avoid exfoliation and strenuous exercises for about 24 hours. You may experience temporary flakiness and redness for a few hours.

The benefits of dermaplaning include:

  • Quick 30-minute treatment
  • No pain or discomfort
  • No foreign substances or chemicals
  • No injections or incisions
  • Can be repeated once a month
  • Ideal just before photoshoots
  • Provides a radiant and luminous skin
  • Removes blemishes and dead skin cells
  • Heals acne scars and reduces breakouts
  • Absorbs your ability to absorb skincare products
  • Reduces fine lines


Dermaplaning produces instant results, leaving your skin looking fresh, vibrant, youthful, and even-textured. However, the results gradually improve over several hours as the redness and flaking dissipate. You should ideally repeat dermaplaning once every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain an ever-glowing complexion.
