What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that removes peach fuzz and dead skin with the tiny scrape of a special scalpel.

The treatment leaves you with brighter and smoother skin – and can be done in its own or as part of a skin package.

Does dermaplaning hurt?

Of course, the idea of running a scalpel over your face sounds intense. But worry not as there’s no pain at all and it’s completely safe.

However, people with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or very sensitive skin might want to proceed with caution.

How often should you dermaplane?

It’s recommended to dermaplane once a month (when advised).

How do you take care of your skin before dermaplaning?

You should use gentle products on your skin before you go for the treatment.

Acids and retinol can make your skin sensitive so you should avoid these ahead of your dermaplaning appointment.

How do you take care of your skin after dermaplaning?

Stay out of the sun and stay hydrated for 48 hours after your treatment.

It’s recommended that you increase your moisturiser usage as well to really hydrate your skin.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

It is painless with no downtime treatments, and is ideal to remove peach fuzz and up to three layers of dead skin cells per session.

It allows deeper product penetration, removes soft facial hair, and the skin looks smoother and brighter. It also improves the appearance of fine lines, removes dead skin, and can be performed on all skin types.

Head to for all the details on her dermaplaning treatments, with packages starting at €100.
