Dermaplaning Consultation and Consent Form

Client Details

Dermaplaning will gently exfoliate and eliminate surface layers of dead skin cells and unwanted vellus hair (peachfuzz) and will prime skin for our professional enzyme or acid peel. Professional enzymes or acid peels dramatically diminishes the appearance of discoloration, while smoothing texture and renewing the appearance of pores, to restore a brighter, more clarified skin tone. For optimal results, a series of 4-6 treatments every 4 weeks is recommended.

Risks / Side effects

All things considered, Dermaplaning is very safe.
- Of course, bleeding is possible as the treatment involves the use of a sharp surgical blade. As with your own shaving experiences in the shower, cuts are extremely rare and more annoying than painful.
- Makeup may be applied after Dermaplaning, in fact you may note that your makeup glides on and sits much better on your face after a session than before.
- Your therapist will take every precaution to ensure that your skin is well hydrated and calm following each session. However, you may experience excessive dryness or even some peeling between sessions, which may or may not be normal.
- More sensitive skin may experience some redness after the first couple of sessions. This normally goes away after 2 to 3 hours.
- Dermaplaning may cause minor superficial abrasions which may not appear until a day or two following your treatment. If this should occur, please contact us so that we can arrange a post-treatment follow up with you.
- After your treatment, SPF 30+ MUST be worn at all times.
- Always seek medical advice if you have any concerns or complications, as well as informing us.


Although it is impossible to list every potential risk and complication, the following conditions are recognized as contraindications for dermaplaning treatment and must be disclosed prior to treatment


The majority of our clients receive noticeable, satisfactory, above average results with a series of treatments and a commitment to a daily skin care regimen. However, this outcome cannot be guaranteed as maximum results are highly dependent on age, cumulative sun exposure, health, lifestyle, genetic traits, general skin condition, and willingness to follow recommended protocols. Be aware that many changes may occur deeper within the skin over time. To continue the maintenance of your skin after you complete your treatment(s), your practitioner may inform you of other preventive treatments that may benefit your skin and help with management of your skin.
