Our Dermaplaning Process

Dermaplaning is the process of exfoliating your skin and getting rid of dirt and vellus hair (also called 'peach fuzz'). This is typically done with a scalpel or a dermatone tool (some similar in looks to an electric razor) which is moved back and forth to scrape off the top layer of dead skin. The result is skin that looks brighter and feels smoother. Although DIY dermaplaning can be undertaken with store-bought kits at home, it is best left to a professional in order to avoid unnecessarily harming yourself by accidentally cutting into your skin.

Side effects of dermaplaning

Dermaplaning may soften fine lines and wrinkles, ease hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. It is also used to treat deep acne scars. This all depends on your skin type and tone, along with your medical history.

Although most people have no irritation or reaction to dermaplaning, the short-term side effects can include:

  • Inflamed and swollen skin from the scraping
  • Some soreness
  • A tingling or burning sensation for around 48 hours after the procedure

Hair growing back thicker or darker has been noted in rare cases.

Before and Aftercare

Around three days before the dermaplaning procedure, avoid direct sunlight or tanning and any skin exfoliation.

As your skin will be much more sensitive after this procedure, we recommend using a sunscreen of SPF 30 at the least, along with a moisturiser afterwards to aid in healing and prevent any unneeded pain or discomfort.

Dermaplaning can be done once every three to four weeks,

When should you avoid dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is not recommended in instances of inflammatory skin conditions. For example:

  • Sunburn
  • Psoriasis
