Dermaplaning 101

What is Dermaplaning?

I was recently trained in and have been practicing my new favorite skill, dermaplaning! I just wanted to give you guys all the details on this new treatment and why it is so awesome! My skin feels so good and I feel it has really been perfected by this treatment. I have slightly sensitive skin and am prone to broken capillaries and this treatment is so incredibly good for my skin type. Actually, it is good for all skin types! 

Dermaplaning can also be referred to as Epithelial Leveling. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a specialized instrument designed to scrape away dead skin cells and vellous hair (peach fuzz). It is a comfortable and relaxing procedure that can be combined with other services to improve their efficacy. Dermaplaning is an excellent anti-aging treatment that provides immediate and cumulative results with each service you receive. It is highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage.  It leaves your skin feeling softer and smoother, and looking brighter and more youthful. 

Here are all of the benefits of dermaplaning:

  • Immediate improvement in skin tone, texture, and appearance
  • Removal of dull dead skin cells and peach fuzz
  • There is no downtime
  • Perfect before social events
  • Makeup glides on easily, so less makeup is needed for a more natural look
  • Great for all skin types and colors
  • Will not aggravate telagiectasia (broken capillaries) 
  • Increases penetration of active ingredients from following products. 
  • Unlike waxing, can be performed on clients using Retinols 
  • Minimal risk of post procedure breakouts 


While my trainer was performing the treatment on my skin, I paid attention to how she set her hand as well as pressure but there towards the end, I definitely dozed off, it was so relaxing. I kind of have some side burns going on so it was really nice to get rid of those. I love performing this treatment because it is so instantly gratifying. I literally get to watch the skin become brighter and pores become cleaner from scraping all the dead dull skin off the top. And the hair! Here is what came off of my face as well as some action photos of me taken by my sweet, amazing trainer from Tulsa, OK. 



Now, SPF is a must following this procedure. So you can bet that I will apply the best SPF fit for your skin before you leave. 

Dermaplaning will soon be added onto the menu as an add on to any facial.  I cannot wait to get a hold of all the pretty faces!

Please feel free to leave any comments or questions.

  • Hi Sara!
    I’m looking to establish myself with an esthetician and came across YOU! I was interested in the Eminence products and dermaplaning! How far out are you booking? Thanks!
