Dermaplaning is a safe and simple skin rejuvenation treatment intended to exfoliate the epidermis and remove vellus hairs (peach fuzz), leaving the skin smoother and looking healthier. This exfoliation allows for your skincare products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active breakouts and men with dense facial hair. If you have active acne, there are other treatments available that would be more beneficial. As always, please discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment. This is an excellent treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process that does not use acids or enzymes to remove dead skin cells. All of the exfoliation is achieved during your treatment, and you will not peel or visibly shed skin after your service, while Peels can result in dramatic peeling in the days following service. Dermaplaning provides an excellent alternative to peels for those who desire professional grade exfoliation without the potential social downtime.
Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleansing, professional exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning followed by restorative treatment and finished with skincare suited to your unique skin. Dermaplaning has a similar sensation to close a shave, which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells simultaneously.
Approximately 45 minutes.
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skin care products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your cosmetics will also go on smoother. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
After a Dermaplaning treatment, your skin needs time to heal and restore. Treat the skin gently, using only hands to cleanse for at least 2 days and wearing sunscreen every day.
No, dermaplaning will not alter your natural hair growth. As we remove the vellus hair, we are cutting it at the thickest part of the hair follicle so it may appear thicker or darker for a brief period of time. However, this perceived difference is cosmetic, and most clients do not notice.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days' worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
