You may have heard that you need to exfoliate your skin. Normally, the skin renews itself about every 27 days. This means that old skin cells fall off and new ones take their place. The problem is that the complete regeneration of the skin rarely happens as it should. Oils, damaged cells, and other debris often accumulate, blocking the vibrancy of the epidermis. Many forms of exfoliation have been developed over time, from facial scrubs to laser skin resurfacing. Right in the middle is dermaplaning, a specialized shaving technique that has become quite popular in recent years.
We recommend that all New Clients start with our "Fresh Start Consultation & Treatment" to assess your skin care needs. At this time, our team will educate you on how your skin is functioning, skin care products and customize treatment goals.

What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning, also called dermablading, is the most requested skin treatment in major metropolitan areas like New York City. It is the celebrity go-to for looking great on the red carpet. Why? Because it works quickly and efficiently to produce a radiant, youthful glow. Dermaplaning is a shaving technique, but it isn’t intended for hair removal as we’ve always known it. The purpose of dermaplaning is to remove the ultra-fine vellus hair known as “peach fuzz.” More than that, this technique also removes the accumulated cellular debris that is blocking the epidermis from its true glory.
Is dermaplaning better than shaving?
Dermaplaning is absolutely better than shaving using a normal razor. The straight-edge scalpel and technique used in the clinical setting achieve several benefits, including:
- Removing fine hair and dead surface cells that trap dirt and oil on the epidermis. This reveals ultra-smooth, glowing skin.
- Without the obstacle of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, products are better able to penetrate the epidermis and absorb into the deeper layers of tissue where they can make a difference in the appearance of the skin.
- Makeup goes on more smoothly when there is no vellus hair or old skin cells causing a rough surface.
- Dermaplaning can be performed on any skin type.
- The effects of skin renewal include softened fine lines and a more even skin tone.
Is dermaplaning right for me?
Many people seek dermaplaning treatment to reduce existing concerns such as dull complexion and fine lines. Some undergo dermaplaning as a way to prevent premature aging. Dermaplaning may be right for you if you have:
- Fine lines
- Rough skin texture
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Visible facial hair
Should I try Dermaplaning at home?
Dermaplaning is not shaving and it is not a treatment that is intended to be done at home. The scalpel used in the clinical setting is often laser-cut, making it sharp enough to cut through ultra-fine vellus hair without irritating hair follicles. A normal machine-cut razor, even a straight-edge, can pull hair from follicles, leading to bumps and, in more severe cases, ingrown hairs. For dermaplaning to achieve its full potential, it should be conducted by a trained professional who knows how to angle the straight-razor properly against the skin so as not to cause scratches or irritation.
What Should I Expect from my first dermaplaning treatment?
Dermaplaning treatment takes about 30 minutes. It does not require any topical numbing cream or other anesthetics. The procedure is performed on dry skin. To stimulate cellular turnover, the provider holds a sterile surgical blade at a 45-degree angle and runs it along the skin’s surface in the opposite direction of the natural hair pattern. This not only removes the ultra-fine hair but also the dead skin cells that have collected on the epidermis.
After dermaplaning treatment, the skin is ultra-smooth and, after minor redness resolves, will have a natural healthy glow. Makeup goes effortlessly onto the skin’s silky surface.
Can dermaplaning be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Dermaplaning can be combined with other mild procedures such as gentle peels, LED light therapy, or other facial treatments.
What are the side effects of dermaplaning?
There are very few side effects associated with dermaplaning and no serious risks as long as treatment is performed by a trained professional. After the noninvasive procedure, the skin may be slightly pink and may feel tight. Some people experience minor flaking as old cells are shed. This normally lasts only a day or two. Moisturizer and sunscreen can help promote optimal results.
