Dermaplaning is a method of manual skin exfoliation using a scalpel. whilst that might sound scary it is actually incredible safe. The treatment gently scrapes off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells whilst also removing the 'vellus' (soft, white) hair often referred to as "Peach Fuzz". Most clients worry they will grow back as 'bristles' however, this is not the case as the vellus hair is not the same as 'terminal' hair which is darker and courser - more associated with the male beard.
Dermaplaning removes the soft, white hair or "peach Fuzz' as well as dead skin cells. this leaves your skin dewy, super soft and wonderfully smooth. Dermaplaning is a favourite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? because it eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up makeup which can be enhanced by bright production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for other procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
other benefits include removal of 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells
which smooths skin to reveal a brighter, dewy complexion.
Skincare products can penetrate deeper and be more effective. There is a minor risk of nicks or abrasions from the treatment although these are quite rare.

• Recent use of topical agents such as glycolic acids, alpha-hydroxy acids and Retin-A

Dermaplaning Vs. Microdermabrasion
Both are forms of physical exfoliation however, the methods are very different. Whilst microdermabrasion 'sands' the skin to remove dead skin cells which helps to unblock pores. Dermaplaning safely 'scrapes' off the dead skin cells taking with it the soft, white vellus hair which helps unblock pores and reduce breakouts.
