History of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is believed to have originated in Japan, where it was used to remove dead skin cells and hair from the face using a blade made from bamboo or other materials.
In the United States, dermaplaning became popular in the 1980s and 1990s as a way to exfoliate the skin and improve its texture and appearance. The procedure was initially performed using a surgical scalpel, but over time, specialized dermaplaning tools have been developed that are designed specifically for this purpose.
Today, it has become increasingly popular as more people look for non-invasive ways to improve the appearance of their skin. While it is not a new procedure, advances in technology and techniques have made it safer and more effective than ever before.
The Dermaplaning Process

During the procedure, our highly certified skincare professional will cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser and then use a sterile blade held at a 45-degree angle to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair. This exfoliates the skin and promotes cell turnover, which can help improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and uneven skin texture. It can also make the skin look brighter and smoother.
The treatment is usually performed every three to four weeks and it is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle, which is thirty days, before coming back and having the treatment done again. The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area. It is also important to note that while the procedure does remove hair from the face, it will not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker.
*People who suffer from acne or have excess oil should not have dermaplaning performed. Some clients may want to avoid this procedure because if the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could lead to acne breakouts. If you have any concerns, reach out to us to see if dermaplaning is right for you.
