What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure used to exfoliate the skin and remove fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. It involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and the soft facial hair. This process aims to improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the absorption of skincare products. It results in smoother, brighter skin immediately after treatment, with minimal downtime or discomfort.


  • Exfoliation: It effectively removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which can improve skin texture and tone.
  • Smooth Complexion: By removing the layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz), dermaplaning can leave the skin feeling smoother and looking brighter.
  • Enhanced Product Absorption: After dermaplaning, skincare products can penetrate more deeply into the skin, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Improvement of Skin Conditions: It can help with the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
  • Safe for Most Skin Types: Dermaplaning is generally safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin, as it is non-invasive and does not use harsh chemicals.
  • Instant Results: Unlike some skincare treatments that require time to show results, dermaplaning provides immediate improvement in skin texture and appearance.
  • Non-Invasive: It is a gentle procedure with minimal risk of side effects when performed by a trained professional.
  • Painless: Most people find dermaplaning to be painless and comfortable, with no downtime required after treatment.

Dermaplaning with Microneedling:

Dermaplaning and microneedling are two distinct skincare treatments that can complement each other when used together:

  1. Dermaplaning: This procedure involves using a surgical scalpel to gently exfoliate the skin's surface, removing dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning aims to improve skin texture, enhance the absorption of skincare products, and create a smoother complexion.
  2. Microneedling: In contrast, microneedling utilizes a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This process stimulates collagen production, improves skin texture, and can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

When combined, dermaplaning and microneedling can offer several benefits:

  • Enhanced Product Absorption: Dermaplaning removes the layer of dead skin cells and fine hair that can impede product penetration. This can enhance the absorption of serums or other topical treatments applied during or after microneedling.
  • Improved Treatment Efficacy: By starting with dermaplaning, the skin's surface is prepared, allowing the microneedling device to penetrate more evenly and deeply. This can potentially improve the overall effectiveness of the microneedling treatment.
  • Comprehensive Skin Renewal: Together, these treatments can address multiple skin concerns such as uneven texture, fine lines, superficial scars, and dull complexion.
