Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment done by our trained professionals with a surgical blade. With this treatment we are able to slough off the first couple layers of dry skin cells allowing products we use in office, and the ones you use at home, to penetrate deeper. Along with the dry skin, Dermaplaning also removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) leaving your skin incredibly smooth. Dermaplaning is a great compliment to any facial or chemical peel. This treatment includes an enzyme exfoliation to lift up remaining dry skin cells followed by steam and extractions to deep clean pores. Our treatment finishes with products to hydrate and protect your refreshed glowing skin!
This is a common misunderstanding and the answer is no, Dermaplaning will not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellous hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks. (There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies: Vellous hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body. Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas.) Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
This service is a great alternative to Microdermabrasion if you are prone to broken capillaries.
This is a great treatment for clients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream. It is also a first choice for clients who are prone to broken capillaries and should not do Microdermabrasion or clients who have excess vellus hair on the face. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives healthier looking skin.
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many clients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
