Excellent on its own or combined with hydrating facials, chemical peels or HydraFacials, dermaplaning gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells on the face. This treatment is recommended for all skin types, except for those who suffer from acne, and is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.

Almost anyone can benefit from planing, dermaplaning or oilplaning. The procedure is especially beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead skin cells. It can help those with dry or rough skin texture and those wanting to minimize superficial acne scarring and uneven skin tones.

Get Rejuvenated Skin
With Fewer Lines and Wrinkles.

There is no downtime with this treatment other than slight redness. Some people report a feeling like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure. It is recommended you use a rich hyaluronic acid mask or moisturizing cream to help repair your skin, keep it super hydrated and use sunscreen to protect the skin. The average skin cell turnover rate is 30 days, so it is recommended that you have dermaplaning or oilplaning done about once a month to see long-term results.


Dermaplaning is a facial exfoliation procedure using a very fine medical-grade scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It’s also called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning is an excellent alternative to a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment. It helps aid in collagen production and is highly effective for reducing fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage. It is a non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation.

Dermaplaning was once an insider secret in the modeling industry. Dermaplaning is remarkable for many reasons, but what this service was created for is exfoliation! It removes around 2-3 weeks of dead skin sitting on the surface, plus the peach fuzz yielding instant results. You will notice that your skin is softer, smoother, and so glowy.


Oil-planing is dermaplaning with oils for dry, sensitive or mature skin types. Applying a light amount of oil to the skin before dermaplaning gives a smooth barrier helping to prevent over-drying and sensitizing your face. Facial oil is applied to the cleansed area of the face, and then the area is dermaplaned as normal.

The immediate result is fresh, bright skin revealed and a smoother look and feel to the skin.

This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne and is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.

You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a planing treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.
