What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is non-invasive, exfoliation treatment that removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and the superficial layer of dead skin from the face. Vellus hair on the face tends to collect dirt and excess oil in the follicles. When excess oil sits on the surface of the skin, over time it can cause blackheads or invade your pores. Dermaplaning is perfect for addressing blemishes and oily pores, and by keeping your pores clean, it can simultaneously prevent premature wrinkles.* Instantly brighten your complexion and get an overall youthful glow with dermaplaning!*
Am I a candidate?
Dermaplaning is recommended for people who suffer from:
- acne scars
- a dry, aged complexion
- imperfections and fine lines resulting from the buildup of dead skin cells
- rough, dry skin
What can I expect during a dermaplaning procedure?
Before your treatment, we will cleanse and dry your skin. Next, you’ll sit back and relax as we use a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape the top layer of dead skin cells off of your face. Not only does this process remove dead skin cells, but it also triggers the cell regeneration process and allows skin care products to better penetrate your skin.* The procedure usually lasts 30-45 minutes, and afterward, we will moisturize your skin for deep hydration.
What can I expect from the results?
Immediately after your treatment, you can expect to see a noticeable glow with results typically lasting for several weeks and up to a month.* Monthly treatments are recommended, although this largely depends on your personal aesthetic goals. Dermaplaning is ideal for people with dry skin and women who are pregnant or nursing, as it does not use acid-based solutions to exfoliate. This treatment is great on its own, but can also be coupled with a chemical peel or dermal infusion for even better results!
