Dermaplaning is a safe and simple procedure that uses a surgical blade to gently exfoliate the tired skin cells of the epidermis, the surface layer of the skin, and rids the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).
How Does it Work?
Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure that has the added benefit of removing vellus hair. A special surgical blade is used to smooth and refinish the epidermis through a very fine, controlled scraping.
What can I expect during the treatment?
After a thorough cleansing, the aesthetician will pull an area of your skin taut and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is repeated over the entire treatment area. Vellus hair is removed to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
What are the results?
Dermaplaning will leave your skin looking more radiant with a more even skin tone and a smoother texture. All your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
Is it Safe?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure; it can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs except in this case, the “scraping” is done on your face! There are minimal to no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look very pink.
Are there contraindications?
Current inflamed acne lesions; Skin cancer; Active cold sores; Uncontrolled diabetes; Dermatitis; Open skin lesions; Use of Accutane currently or in the past six months; and/or the use of prescription retinol within a week of treatment.
