Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). Add this service on to any facial for a wow-factor difference. Reveal a glow like you’ve never seen before!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Dermaplaning is a specialized treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, also known as ‘peach fuzz’, by utilizing a tool that essentially exfoliates the surface layer of skin. This treatment is an effective pairing with microdermabrasion and laser treatments for an even more enhanced result.
You will also notice a significant improvement of smoother makeup application given the face’s smooth, soft texture after the treatment.
Some of the many benefits of Dermaplaning include:
Promoting normal shedding of the outer layer of skin (stratum corneum)
Increasing skin’s capacity to absorb skincare products more effectively
Improved skin surface for makeup application
Smooth, radiant skin
Frequently asked questions
How does Dermaplaning work?
Using a specialized tool, the treatment works to exfoliate your face and ridding it of dead skin cells and fine hair, which is commonly referred to as ‘peach fuzz’. This hair traps excess oil produced by the skin as well as dirt. You will notice an instant improvement in your skin, which will become smoother in appearance and give off a fresher, healthier look.
How long does the treatment take and is it painful?
The treatment is comfortable and pain-free, taking approximately 35 minutes to complete. Dermaplaning will leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth with a radiant glow upon completion.
How often can I have the treatment?
The treatment can be done as often as every two weeks, however, for more desirable results, it is more effective to have the treatment when vellus hair grows back, which differs from client to client.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime required with this treatment, and you may resume daily activities as soon as your treatment is complete.
Will fine facial hair grow back coarser or darker after the treatment?
No. The vellus hair, which is the very fine hair found on your face, will not grow back coarser or darker. The hair will grow back at the same rate as it did before the treatment, with the same texture and color as well.
