Peach fuzz, or the tiny hairs that grow on our face, can collect dirt and oils, cause toxin buildup, clog pores, and contribute to skin breakouts. Peach fuzz also gets in the way of makeup going smoothly onto the face. At the same time, dead, dry skin can make you look tired and your skin tone dull.

That’s why dermaplaning is such an effective treatment. With a simple procedure, your skin is refreshed and revitalized, and your peach fuzz is completely eliminated.


What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning removes peach fuzz and the top layer of dead skill and buildup. This specialized, unique exfoliation procedure leaves your skin completely renewed and revitalized. Dermaplaning is a noninvasive procedure done by a trained technician. A sterilized medical scalpel designed to be used on the face precisely removes the top layer of skin. The sharp edge of this dermaplaning tool is held at a forty-five-degree angle, then moved along your skin in a method very similar to shaving.

Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive procedure that is safe for people of all skin types, colors and tones. This procedure can be done for pregnant or nursing women, patients with thin or very sensitive skin.

Patients who would like to resolve the following concerns are usually ideal candidates for dermaplaning:

  • Have unwanted vellum hair (peach fuzz)
  • Have deep scars, including acne scars
  • Have wrinkles and fine lines
  • Have rough, uneven skin
  • Have dry aging skin

Dermaplaning is not designed for individuals who have active acne or pustular rosacea.
