A simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that removes the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s epidermis (outermost surface) to reveal the fresher, younger skin cells below. By shaving off the superficial epidermis, dermaplaning removes the buildup of dirt and oils in the outer follicles that becomes trapped by fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Removing the hair gives the patient healthier and glowing skin.
Additionally, removing the outer layers of epidermal skin allows products and serums to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers, which extends your results and dollar investment in facial skin care products.
INCREASES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER FACIAL PROCEDURES
Dr. Hubbell also suggests this treatment to prepare the face for medical procedures such as laser hair removal, dermal infusions (microdermabrasion), chemical peels and facials. By wiping away the dead skin, other treatments are able to penetrate deeper yielding better results.
- increases the effectiveness of other facial treatments
- allows a deeper penetration of skin care products
- has few to no adverse effects
- is quick and requires no downtime
Safe for Pregnant or Nursing Mothers
This is a great treatment for pregnant or nursing mothers who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream.
WITH DERMAPLANING YOU CAN EXPECT:
- Smooth and glowing skin
- Mild reduction in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild reduction in acne scarring
- Mild reduction in hyperpigmentation (darkening of an area caused by increased melanin)
How does it work?
Our expertly-trained estheticians simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
How long does it take?
This is a quick and easy procedure.
Will the vellus hair grow back darker and heavier?
Hair will not grow back darker and heavier. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
What should I do post-treatment?
After the entire area has been treated, place a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen on the skin to finish the treatment.
How often can I get Dermaplaning done?
Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time.
What areas can be treated?
Dermaplaning is primarily for the face.
