Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the face and ridding of fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz). During a Dermaplaning facial, we use a sterile surgical scalpel specially designed for the face to gently remove the top layer of dead skin. This method is more gentle, yet even deeper exfoliating than microdermabrasion.
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion

WHO IS Dermaplaning FOR?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acne prone skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.
HOW IS Dermaplaning DONE?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.
First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells as well as any small hairs
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About 30 minutes
What is the average cost of Dermaplaning?
Massage Works offers this service in combination with our Signature Éminence Organic Facial for $85 for an hour, while most Dermaplaning services typically cost $100 to $200 elsewhere
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF Dermaplaning?
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF Dermaplaning?
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
