For a quick treatment with no downtime, dermaplaning might be just what you need for smooth, glowing skin! Dermaplaning is perfect before events, special occasions or for those who prefer a face free of “peach fuzz” for easier makeup application and better skincare efficacy. We also recommend dermaplaning to anyone about to undergo a laser or chemical peel treatment to allow better penetration which leads to better results. Dermaplaning is also an amazing treatment for pregnant women who are unable to use certain actives in their skincare and must avoid many skincare treatments.
So, What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a medical-grade surgical blade in short strokes at a 45 degree angle to remove the surface layer of dead skin, debris and hair. A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built up dead skin cells and debris from your skin. Since the blade is being held at a precise angle and the experienced technician uses light, feathering strokes, there is no worry about piercing or scratching the skin. Dermaplaning is completely pain free and non-invasive.
The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin. There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker- dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that grows back the same size and color. In addition, the way the surgical blade cuts the hair does not create the illusion of a thicker hair.
What are the Benefits?
Dermaplaning provides an effective and safe exfoliation treatment that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skin care products while making the skin look and feel smoother. It is also beneficial for reducing the appearance of acne scars. The treatment also works to remove facial hair that can trap dirt and oils. Makeup looks smoother and more flawless and without the fine layer of hair on the face, light more easily refracts off of the skin creating an ethereal skin glow!
