Ladies and gentlemen, the (derma)plane is cleared for take-off.
Every day, your skin is exposed to a number of toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This causes your top layer of skin to appear dull and aged. Dermaplaning sweeps away those damaged cells and allows new ones to thrive.
Our technique is safe for any skin type and has little to no downtime. By gently exfoliating the small layer of dead skin cells that collect in your pores, dermaplaning helps speed up the production of new healthier ones, improving the look of dry, dull, and sun-damaged skin.
It also removes embarrassing facial peach fuzz and can aid in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, deep acne scarring, and uneven pockmarks. Schedule your appointment and discover a more radiant, smooth, and youthful looking you.

- How is this procedure done?
- A specially trained and certified esthetician uses a small, professional-grade, sterile blade to gently shave the congested top layer of your skin, as well as temporarily removing that pesky peach fuzz.
- Do I qualify for this procedure?
- A thorough skin analysis and medical history will always be done prior to your first dermaplaning appointment to determine if you might have any contraindications that restrict you from receiving the service.
- Does it hurt?
- Nope! It will just feel like a gentle shave.
- What is the probability of being cut?
- Don’t worry! Your esthetician has been specially certified at an advanced aesthetics class. They have been thoroughly trained to use the scalpel! Worst case scenario; there may be a tiny nick that you won’t even notice!
