FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating cosmetic treatment that utilizes a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the skin’s surface to remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz (vellus hairs) from the face. Your esthetician will hold the scalpel at a 45-degree angle and scrape it across the skin to remove the peach fuzz and skin cells.
What Are The Benefits of Dermaplaning?
- Promotes smoother, more youthful-looking skin

Does Dermaplaning Hurt?
No. It feels like a gentle scratching across your face. It is a similar sensation to shaving other parts of your body.
