Last Updated: 08.03.2021

Dermaplaning, much like waxing, not only removes unwanted hair but also provides a gentle exfoliation by removing the top layers of dead skin on the face. Dermaplaning is commonly referred to as face shaving, however this uses a single, surgical blade and should be administered by a skincare professional. Before a dermaplaning treatment your provider will first cleanse the skin. Next, the blade will be manually scraped across the forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck area to remove peach fuzz hairs and layers of dead skin cells. Following the treatment it is common to apply different serums to the skin to penetrate the freshly exfoliated skin.

The goal of dermaplaning is to remove vellus hair or "peach fuzz" from the face while exfoliating the face for a brighter, younger look.
