What is Dermaplaning?
There are several methods of exfoliation out there, but not all of them are as gentle as Dermaplaning. Using a ten gauge scalpel, Dermaplaning gently exfoliates the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and vellus hair (commonly known as “peach fuzz”) to bring out your skin’s natural radiance. This treatment improves the skin’s absorption of skin care products and also makes it easier to apply and remove make up.
Why consider Dermaplaning?
- Dermaplaning can enhance the texture and tone of your skin
- Dermaplaning is gentler on the skin in comparison to microdermabrasion
- Skin care products can hydrate and support your skin better
- Make-up can smoothly be applied and cleaned off
- Bothersome vellus hair, or peach fuzz is removed for an even smoother canvas
- There is no downtime required and patients can immediately resume their schedule with brighter and younger-looking skin
What does Dermaplaning feel like?
The feeling of a Dermaplaning treatment can be compared to shaving. As such, it has become highly popular for it’s painless execution and luminous results!
How long does this procedure take?
Dermaplaning typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. Patients could fit this skin-softening treatment into their lunch hours, should they choose!
Is Dermaplaning right for me?
Dermaplaning can be treated on all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. However, if you are experiencing breakouts of acne, we recommend waiting until your skin clears up before getting this treatment. If you have any allergies or certain skin sensitivities, consult with our staff in order to properly determine if this treatment is right for you.
