What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of gentle exfoliation that uses light, feathery strokes and a sterile- surgical blade. Dermaplaning removes dead, surface skin cells, as well as vellus hairs (AKA peach fuzz) from the face. It is an alternative to Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
There are numerous, some of which include; deeper product penetration, promotes the production of collagen and elastin resulting in fewer fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the appearance of brown spots, immediately the skin is more radiant and youthful, removes peach fuzz which traps dirt and oils, makeup glides on and appears smoother, no down-time, painless.
Who is not a good candidate for Dermaplaning?
Anyone with excessively oily skin, or who has active cystic acne. Clients with multiple raised lesions, as well as anyone with an allergy to nickel.
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
Absolutely, as long as it is preformed by a properly trained, licensed and certified esthetician.
How often can I have Dermaplaning done?
It is recommended to wait 4-6 weeks in between treatments.
What can I expect the day of my treatment?
Your appointment will run between 30-60 minutes. The procedure itself is painless and requires no down time. You will be able to apply your make-up immediately afterwards. The use of a high sunscreen (SPF 30 or more) is highly recommended.
Will my facial hair grow back thicker or darker?
No, this is not possible as the vellus hairs that are removed are a much finer hair type than that of our other body hair. The follicle and hair type will not be affected, it will grow in the same as it did before.
