What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a revitalizing skin treatment that works to remove dead skin cells, which may result in removing vellus hair (peach fuzz), from the skin safely and effectively. Using a specialized tool, Dermaplaning works by intensely exfoliating the surface layer of your skin, leaving you with softer, smoother, and more radiant looking skin.
For added effectiveness, Dermaplaning can be complemented with other skin care treatments such as Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, or a Soothing Hydrating Masque.
Benefits of Dermaplaning:
- Gently sheds the outer layer of skin
- Allows skin to absorb skincare products more effectively
- Stimulates circulation
- Reduces vellus facial hair
- Improves hydration
- Easier makeup application due to smoother skin
- Leaves skin feeling smooth and radiant

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Dermaplaning work?
A Lucere skin expert will use a unique, specialized tool that works to intensely exfoliate the top layer of skin on your face. Dead skin cells and ‘peach fuzz’ are gently removed through this process, leaving healthier and more refreshed skin on the surface. Excess oil and dirt that becomes trapped by fine hairs are also removed during this process, allowing your skin to ‘breathe’ more efficiently. You will be left with a fresher, smoother, and overall healthier complexion.
When will I see results?
You will instantly notice a smoother and more radiant glow to your skin directly following your procedure. There is no recovery time following your Dermaplaning treatment, so you may resume regular activities immediately after.
Will the ‘peach fuzz’ grow back coarser or darker following my treatment?
No! The vellus hair (or ‘peach fuzz’) will grow back at the same rate, coarseness, and colour as it did prior to treatment.

How often can I receive treatment?
A Dermaplaning treatment can be done as often as every two weeks. However, for optimal results we recommend getting a Dermaplaning treatment once your vellus hair grows back. This growing process varies between client to client. We recommend speaking with a Lucere skin expert about the right Dermaplaning treatment plan for you.

Dermaplaning is not recommended for clients with active acne and acne-prone skin. Dermaplaning works effectively for clients looking for beautiful, glowing skin with no downtime.
