Dermaplaning is a painless, effective, and safe procedure. It is a skin procedure in which a specialized instrument is used to exfoliate the surface of your skin while also eliminating small fine hairs.Certified and trained dermatologist expert will gently scrape over the surface of your skin with a sterile scalpel to remove hair, dirt, dead skin, and impurities from the outermost layers of your skin. This will accelerate the growth of new skin cells. The procedure aims to provide smooth, young, and luminous face skin.

How does dermaplaning work?

  • The fundamental principle of dermaplaning is similar to shaving, except instead of a razor, it employs a scalpel-type blade to remove skin cells, hair, and other debris from the skin’s surface.
  • The continual exposure of the top layer of skin to UV radiation, environmental pollutants, and irritants causes it to seem dull. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin to expose fresh skin cells, making a person’s complexion smoother and more radiant.
  • The majority of reports on the efficacy of dermaplaning  and treatment outcomes may differ from person to person.


  • Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing process that may be performed by a  dermatologist.
  • The expert should use a gentle cleanser containing alpha or beta hydroxy acids prior to the procedure to help remove dead skin cells.
  • It is performed with a special instrument called a Dermatome. During this treatment, the patient may be given pain sensitivity to lessen any discomfort he or she may experience. The doctor uses the Dermatome to smooth away the skin’s superficial layer.
  • This treatment is very adaptable and may be done on specific regions of the face or on the complete face. Depending on the patient’s requirements, the process might take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to perform.
  • During the process, the expert will hold a sterile 10-gauge scalpel at a 45-degree angle to the skin. They’ll pull the skin tight and use the blade to make small movements against the surface of the skin’s hair. Dermaplaning may be done as often as every two weeks depending on skin condition and patient’s requirement.

How to get ready for dermaplaning and what is the time duration for this procedure?

The treatment takes around 30 minutes.It’s better if you don’t exfoliate your skin three days prior to the procedure.You should also avoid tanning and direct sunlight exposure.
