Dermaplaning

 

Dermaplaning is a safe, effective and painless exfoliation procedure. Using a sterile scalpel, we will lightly scrape along your skin’s surface to remove vellus hair (peach fuzz), dirt, dead skin and impurities from the outermost layers of your skin. This will stimulate fresh skin cell development.

 

The best part about dermaplaning are the immediate results! Dermaplaning actually provides many of the same benefits as a light chemical peel without any down time or post treatment peeling. Many first time dermaplaners say their skin has never felt so smooth before!

 

We will carefully and meticulously exfoliate the top layers of your skin with the surgical blade. We will take our time to ensure you’ll get the safest and most effective results possible, the procedure will normally take less than 30 minutes.

There are a lot of really great reasons to dermaplane your skin and there’s a good chance it may be the best method of exfoliation for you:

  • There are no chemicals involved. This means irritation is a lot less likely to occur.

  • Your perfectly smooth new skin enhances the benefits of concealer and improves the application of your makeup!

  • The procedure is short (less than 30 minutes).

  • The benefits are immediate!

  • The blade that’s used is small. This tiny blade allows us to target specific problem areas easily and more effectively than procedures using large instruments and focuses on the whole face.

  • Dermaplaning promotes the growth of new skin cells by scraping and removing the old ones away.

  • Exfoliation helps your skincare products penetrate the skin and improves their results.

  • Dermaplaning removes excess fine hairs which are known for trapping the dirt, oil and dead skin cells in your pores that are the main cause of acne and blemishes.

  • Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, and healthier giving you that “baby smooth” look and feel. 

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure that does not require any numbing cream (unlike intense microneedling). Many people say it compares to the sensation of shaving your legs, armpits or neck. First, we will cleanse and dry your skin. Next, we pull your skin taut with one hand and hold a sterile blade at a 45-degree° angle using short, swift strokes to scrape dead skin cells and fine hairs from the top layers of your skin.

Most people experience no down time and immediately return to their busy schedules and finish out the day. Clients that routinely get dermaplane treatments constantly comment on the smoothness of their complexion and their new “baby like skin.” The reason dermaplaning has become so popular is because in less than 30 minutes you will see immediate improvements in the radiance and smoothness of your skin tone. Many feel dermaplaning is the perfect exfoliation procedure because it generally has zero side effects.

Immediately following your dermaplaning treatment, skin can be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look slightly pink. We always recommend wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of experiencing unnecessary hyperpigmentation from the sun.

Will your facial hair grow back thicker?? Have no fear! It is physiologically impossible for your vellus hair to grow back thicker. It is important to know there are two different types of hair on our bodies – vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is most often located on our face and ear lobes and is translucent or blonde. This type of hair cannot change into terminal hair and will not come back thicker and more visible.

Dermaplaning is not for everyone. People who have thick, dark facial hair or those with overactive oily acne prone skin should avoid dermaplaning procedures. It has been found that skin tones which are sensitive to hyperpigmentation may not be good candidates for dermaplaning. Procedures on hyperpigmentation prone or acne scarred individuals can leave permanently blotchy, discolored skin. Also, be careful if you are a person who has shown susceptibility to rashes, fever blisters and cold sores as dermaplaning can cause an increase in flare-ups if you are susceptible to them.

Dermaplaning can remove 21 days’ worth of dead skin cells. It is highly recommended that you allow your skin to complete its full rejuvenation cycle before you go in for your next treatment. 

Try dermaplaning if having immaculate, beautiful, younger looking skin is important to you. The result will likely be smoother, cleaner, younger healthier looking skin! Just make sure if you love dermaplaning you schedule it every 21 days. Dermaplaning is a safe chemical free way to manually exfoliate your skin to give you that red carpet look that everyone strives for.
