Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliating treatment where dry dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) is sloughed off with a surgical blade. Performed by our Certified Medical Estheticians, the treatment is painless (feels like a tickling or light brushing) and requires no downtime. Our treatment includes an enzyme exfoliation to lift up any remaining dead skin cells followed by steam and extractions to deep clean pores. Our treatment finishes with products to hydrate and protect your refreshed glowing skin! Dermaplaning is also a great compliment to any facial or chemical peel.
Exfoliating off the dead skin cells will allow products we use in office, and the ones you use at home, to penetrate deeper (which means they will be more effective!). Along with the dry skin, Dermaplaning also removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz), leaving your skin incredibly smooth and bright. In the long run, Dermaplaning can help with hyperpigmentation and skin texture! Not only this, Dermaplaning creates a smoother canvas for perfect makeup application.
Almost all skin types can benefit from Dermaplaning! Only individuals with cystic acne or who are on Accutane are not a candidate. This is a great treatment for clients who are pregnant or nursing that 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 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.
