 A Kailua dermatologist performs dermaplaning, using a fine blade to exfoliate and remove peach fuzz for smoother skin.


Dermaplaning is a skincare procedure designed to exfoliate the skin and remove fine facial hair, often called "peach fuzz." It involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape the skin's surface, removing dead skin cells and unwanted hair. At our dermatology clinic in Kailua, Hawaii, dermaplaning is a popular treatment to achieve smoother, brighter skin.

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types and offers immediate results. It can be a stand-alone treatment or part of a broader skincare routine, providing a quick and effective way to enhance the complexion.

Dermaplaning at Kailua dermatology clinics creates a smooth texture, enhancing product absorption and makeup application.


The benefits of dermaplaning include smoother skin, better absorption of skincare products, and a more even complexion. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and allows makeup to go on more smoothly.
