What is dermaplaning and what does it do?

Dermaplaning facials are perfectly safe and non-invasive. This skin treatment requires a special tool (razor blade) that is held at a forty-five degree angle and stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplaning facials are performed as a stand alone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectives . This is a wonderful form of exfoliation can be used with or without chemicals. This treatment does not require downtime and will effectively smooth acne scars over a period of time and is also amazing for flawless makeup application. 

Perfect skin with dermaplaning facials

What are the benefits of having regular dermaplaning facials?

  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil.
  • Dermaplanning enhances the effectiveness of other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and DiamondTome microdermabrasion by providing deeper product penetration.
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Produces immediate results with no downtime

Is a dermaplaning a safe procedure for all skin tones?

Yes, when performed by a well trained professional, dermaplaning facials are very safe for all skin tones and ethnicities. 

Will my hair grow back thicker?

No. This is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplanning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplaning facials are designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.

What areas can be treated?

Dermaplaning is typically performed on the face only.

How often is the procedure performed?

Dermplaning is usually performed every three-four weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two-three weeks worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal thirty day rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.

Does the skin peel afterwards?

Occasionally the skin will peel after a dermaplaning treatment. If the procedure is done in two week intervals, the growth cycle of your hair may not be complete; therefore you are treating skin unnecessarily. This may cause peeling to occur.

What skin types/conditions can be treated?

All skin types may benefit from this treatment, however it is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair). If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts. Book your treatment today!
