More About DermaPlaning …

DermaPlaning has been performed since the 70’s by medical professionals and skin care specialists…


At Salon Setup we supply the Training to Certified Therapists and all the products you need to execute the treatment…


In some cultures from the east, the treatment has been kept a secret due to the contradiction it will create comparing a woman “shaving” her skin like a man, whereas in Hollywood it has become a standard treatment amongst celebrities to create smooth, velvety youthful skin.

DermaPlaning is a treatment promoting a physical exfoliation utilizing a specialized instrument designed to remove accumulated dead skin cells and vellous hair in a controlled manner. The procedure is non-invasive and combining dermaplaning with other services, for instance, enzyme peels, AHA treatments etc. can further enhance these treatments efficiency.

Receiving Training and Certification in order to perform DermaPlaning treatments are very important…

As the treatment involves working with a sharp instrument and there is a potential for cuts and nicks. During training, the focus should be on perfecting your technique, as there are a right and a wrong way with this treatment. By following the correct sterilization and treatment protocols you will ensure all health and safety requirements are met for the salon and your clients.

DermaPlaning is a unique, safe and affordable treatment for both the salon and client, treating specific skin concerns for instance; fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and to promote general skin health. Conducting a consultation before a DermaPlanning treatment followed with a signed consent form from the client will ensure this treatment would be the most suitable option to treat her skin concerns. It is recommended to receive this treatment on a monthly basis with a price range between $85 -$150 depending on various factors.

Clients will experience an immediate improvement in their skin tone. The skin will feel softer to touch with a smoother appearance which makes this the ideal treatment before a wedding or special occasion. Make-up will apply and sit better on the skin and clients will also notice using less product but achieving healthier skin as the product penetration is improved. There is no downtime after the treatment and DermaPlaning can be performed on all skin types without the potential of causing post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

If we have to categorize Derma planing within the beauty industry it will sit next to Micro-dermabrasion.
Both of these treatments assist to remove accumulated dead skin cells in order to promote exfoliation in a non-chemical procedure. However, DermaPlaning is performed with more precision and control, enabling the skin specialist to administer DermaPlaning on sensitive skins without the risk of causing irritation and inflammation. The bonus is that it will remove the fine vellous hair which so many of us just can’t stand.

The question we get asked on a regular basis about dermaplaning is: “will my hair grow back as a beard or become coarser and darker?”

This is physically impossible due to the type of hair which is present on the face. The hair follicle contains the DNA which is programmed to produce vellous hair also referred to peach fuzz and receiving Derma planing treatments will not be able to alter the DNA of the follicle.

Clients may experience hormonal changes during pregnancy, POS or menopause and notice more terminal hair appearing. It is recommended to treat these hairs with wax, electrolysis or laser treatments for the best results.

I guess the secret is out! DermaPlaning is not just shaving your face but this treatment offers an array of benefits from reducing dull tired skin to promoting healthy rejuvenated skin. No more fuzzy hair and taking your professional skin care treatments to the next level.

Rachel Hunter recently had a treatment in Japan during her Tour of Beauty TV show resembling the removal of the vellous hair or peach fuzz with a razor. This treatment is similar to dermaplaning, but due to the specialized implement used, the angle DermaPlaning is performed at and no product application during the treatment the results will provide an advanced exfoliation treatment rather than just shaving the skin.

Who can perform dermaplaning?

A licensed aesthetician, which has been professionally trained, can perform the treatment.

How do I get started dermaplaning?

The best way to get started is to take a class. You want hands-on, one-on-one training and you can’t get that from just watching a DVD or youtube clip. We have classroom training in Albany, Auckland but also offer our client FaceTime/Skype training, which is very popular and allows you to get competent and confident quickly – it’s on your schedule and at your pace. We also do offer training at your salon, terms & conditions apply.

What tools and materials will I receive or need to buy?

You will receive our NEWLY Upgraded Starter Kit which includes:

• 1 * Metal Blade Handle,

• 1 * Blade Removal Box,

• 3 Blades w/attached handle,

• 12 * 10R blades,

• 30 ml Prepping solution.

Each Starter Kit contains enough supplies for 15 treatments.

How many blades will I use for each treatment?

When you are using our new 10R BUTTER BLADES – You will need only ONE blade per treatment. This blade is shaped with a rounded tip, blended stainless & carbon steel with a polymer coating – designed & manufactured specifically FOR dermaplaning. If you find you’re using multiple blades to complete a single treatment then you are probably using an inferior blade. Call us for a free sample blade and compare for yourself.

How much money can I make dermaplaning?

That depends on your market and the product costs of the range you are using, so there is no one-price-fits-all answer.

Think of it this way: Clients love the treatment so your rebooking rate will increase since they’ll need DermaPlaning every 4 weeks.

Your cost per treatment is low, and calculated at less than $20 per treatment, depending on the costing of the product range you are using in the salon.

Our suggested retail price per treatment ranges between $85 and $150 per treatment.

The Starter Kit has enough blades for 15 treatments. At a minimum of $85 per treatment, you can expect a return on your investment of $1275.

What is the technique?

This technique is safely performed by using a specialized sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the skin with the blade held at a very specific angle which removes both the vellous hair and the top layer of dead skin cells.

Is it safe?

DermaPlaning is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician utilizing DermaplanePro tools and techniques.

Once the vellous hair is removed will it grow back thicker?

No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellous hair will grow back slowly – usually

in about 4 weeks. We will cover this in detail in training.

Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter

the type of hair grown in any given area.

Can dermaplaning cause the skin to bleed?

Yes, excessive scraping, nicks, and cuts can cause bleeding. That is why it is very important to have professional training using the correct tool and have hands-on practice before performing this treatment on clients.

What areas can be treated?

DermaPlaning is performed on the face, under the chin and sides of the neck.

Dermaplaning should not be done on the eyelids or chest. Sometimes, technicians who are still learning practice on forearms and legs as the skin is tougher in these areas.

How often can this procedure be performed?

DermaPlaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 21-30 days before repeating the treatment.

Who can be treated?

All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. This is a great treatment for Global skin types IV-VI. Darker skin tones actually have more layers of skin so as they age the skin tends to sag rather than wrinkle. DermaPlaning removes these extra layers of skin, helps correct pigmentation concerns and provides a more youthful and healthy glow. Typically clients over 35 are the best candidates and will return for regular treatments. It is highly addictive!

Men can be derma planed on non-beard areas only.

Is there any downtime after DermaPlaning?

No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft, plus makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish. This is a must-have procedure before an important social event or television appearance.
