Dermaplaning is a safe, simple procedure that uses a scalpel to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells off of the face. Vellus hair, also called peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment.
- Allows for greater absorption of skincare products
- Stimulates circulation giving your face a healthy glow
- Removes facial vellus hair (peach fuzz)
- Refines the appearance of pores
Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive, skin resurfacing treatment that has the added benefit of removing vellus hair. A special surgical blade is used to smooth and brighten your skin through a very fine, controlled scraping.
After thoroughly cleansing your skin, the esthetician will gently pull an area of your skin taut and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is repeated until the entire treatment area is complete.
Dermaplaning leaves your skin looking radiant with a more even skin tone and smoother texture. All your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt softer.
Dermaplaning is a painless and safe procedure. It can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs. 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 pink.
