What is Dermaplaning? 

Dermaplaning is an anti-aging procedure that exfoliates the surface of the skin by removing dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). The procedure is performed by an aesthetician, who gently glides a scalpel across the skin, removing the outermost layer of skin cells from the face. As a byproduct, it also removes vellus hair, but the hair will grow back at the same rate and texture as before. The procedure involves the use of a scalpel with a blade designed specifically for Dermaplaning.  The blade is used on clean, dry kin or skin that has been prepared with a specialty oil on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. 

Who is a candidate for Dermaplaning?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for Dermaplaning, including those who are pregnant and nursing.  Those with a thinner and most sensitive skin might want to choose another option for their skin.  Acneic skin types are not recommended to have Dermaplaning because you cannot treat over any lesions or moles. 

What are the benefits and what can I expect from the Dermaplaning treatment?

Dermaplaning removes excess surface skin cells revealing smoother, softer skin. It creates a brighter complexion by removing dead skin cell buildup and vellus hair which can cause facial skin to look dull, grey and/or ashy. Dermaplaning helps to increase absorption of beneficial ingredients in treatment products up to 30% and allows skin to breath, reducing congestion and asphyxiation.  It is a perfect treatment to soften skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne scars with instant results and no downtime. 

How long is the Dermaplaning treatment and how often should I get it done?

Dermaplaning take abouts a half hour and is something that can be performed every 6-8 weeks or sooner if needed.

How does the hair grow back after Dermaplaning?

Following a Dermaplaning treatment, you can expect the hair to grow back at the same rate and texture as it was originally. 

Are there any side effects from Dermaplaning?

Some side effects from Dermaplaning consist of post inflammatory breakouts caused from product use following treatment. Sometimes there may be some friction during Dermaplaning, scratches, cuts and minor nicks.
