Forget Peels: Dermaplaning Can Exfoliate and Get Rid of Peach Fuzz

By now, you likely know the importance of exfoliation: it’s essential to keep your skin glowing. Chances are, you already have a weekly exfoliation routine down pat — be it a satisfying scrub or a gentle acid peel — to help promote cellular turnover and reveal fresh, radiant skin. While both options hold the potential to reveal luminous, petal-soft skin, there’s a third option for those of us who really want to take exfoliation to its absolute max: Dermaplaning.  

“Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation process that uses a scalpel to remove the surface layers of skin,” explains NYC dermatologist Dr. Sejah Shah, founder of SmarterSkin Dermatology. Scalpel? Remove skin? Before you write it off as a new, masochistic beauty trend, rest assured: this process does not hurt. In fact, many find it to be relaxing.

Dermaplaning relies on a specially-designed blade, which looks similar to a men’s flat-edge razor. A highly trained aesthetician uses the tool to gently (gently!) scrape away dead skin, debris, and whatever else your skin might have accumulated (barre class grime, stubborn longwearing makeup, you name it). And unlike your favorite scrub, dermaplaning can remove vellus hair, (or peach fuzz which can trap dirt and dead skin.

While a treatment that removes hair with a blade may sound suspiciously like shaving, dermaplaning truly isn’t. Dr. Shah notes that this treatment “can’t remove thicker, coarse terminal hairs,” and will not give you a five o’clock shadow, stubble, or likely cause your hair to grow back thicker. According to Dr. Shah, vellus hair does not look or grow like regular hair — and returns to its original state when it grows back. The peach fuzz regrowth process takes about a month, and for that reason, professionals recommend scheduling your dermaplaning appointments once per month.
