Dermaplaning or face shaving, as it’s otherwise known, is a safe and non-invasive treatment that uses a surgical blade to remove hair and dead skin cells from the face.
Performed by a highly trained dermal therapist, dermaplaning, is a safe alternative to waxing, IPL or laser hair removal to get rid of peach fuzz and vellus hair across your face.
Beyond hair removal, dermaplaning has other benefits including giving your skin a thorough exfoliation for a smoother complexion and triggering the cell regeneration process for a healthier, brighter look and feel.
After the treatment, besides super soft and plump skin, you’ll notice that skincare products will absorb gorgeously into your skin and make up will sit seamlessly on it.

Dermaplaning uses a professional surgical blade, designed to remove peach fuzz/vellus hair from the top layer of the skin. This blade also removes dead skin cells on the epidermal superficial layer along with blackheads and congestion. We finish the treatment with a fruit enzyme mask to exfoliate and excess dead skin in the area. Your complexion is left filled with antioxidants and a smooth, glowing appearance.
Your hair will not grow back darker or thicker. This treatment does not stimulate the hair follicle or cut it bluntly at the root.
The treatment can last between three to six weeks depending on the clients skin and hormonal factors.
There is no amount of downtime needed if you feel comfortable. You may leave your appointment looking slightly flushed for an hour or two post treatment. We prefer to leave your skin to breathe for at least 24 hours post treatment and wearing no makeup would be beneficial. If needed, you can apply makeup and resume daily activities as normal but please ensure your skin is protected with SPF.
