Dermaplaning is a fast, effective way to remove “peach fuzz” (vellus hair) from the face as well as exfoliate the skin so you can enjoy smooth skin with no downtime. That fine facial hair that everyone has can trap dirt, oil, makeup, and topical creams, which can lead to breakouts and clogged pores. Since vellus hair is different than other types of body hair, there’s no risk of it growing back thicker or darker. Dermaplaning is becoming increasingly popular, and regular treatments help the topical creams and ointments you use better penetrate the skin for maximum results.

How Dermaplaning Works
Dermaplaning is an innovative solution whereby a specialized surgical-grade scalpel is carefully glided across the skin to remove peach fuzz and exfoliate dead skin cells leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Frequently Asked Questions
These Treatments Work Great with Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning can be combined with a number of other treatments at VIDA to help maximize your results.
Continued skin care is an important part of maintaining smooth, vibrant skin. Using a daily SPF 30+ sunscreen can help to protect against the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Another common dermaplaning pairing is microneedling. Microneedling is a procedure that stimulates collagen remodeling via controlled micro-injuries using an FDA-approved medical device. You’ll start to see the results of microneedling a few weeks after the treatment as the dead skin sloughs off. Dermaplaning can help to maintain your results.
A superficial chemical peel is also a great combination treatment with dermaplaning. Chemical peels work by removing the top layer of skin to reveal the more youthful, brighter, clearer skin below. They help improve your skin’s appearance and can treat fine lines, acne scars, age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. However, since chemical peels are a topical treatment, dermaplaning can help by first removing the outermost dead layer of cells, allowing the chemical solution to penetrate better. Make the most of your chemical peel results by ensuring the solution can easily access your skin with no peach fuzz or dead skin cells getting in the way.
What to Expect with Dermaplaning
Before your appointment, it’s a good idea to remove any topical creams, makeup, or ointments. If this isn’t possible, don’t worry. Your esthetician will gently cleanse your face before your treatment. You’ll be comfortably seated, and a surgical-grade scalpel will glide across the top of your skin. It might feel a little like shaving. Dermaplaning treatments take about 30 minutes, and you’ll get to enjoy results right away.
After your treatment, you might choose to add on another service such as a mask or follow up with other skin rejuvenating treatments like microneedling. It’s the perfect time to take your skin rejuvenation to the next level since your skin will be in prime condition.
