What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a gentle scraping motion with a surgical blade to slough away dead skin cells and fine facial hair, revealing a fresh and even canvas. Skin is more radiant and visibly smoother following treatment. By eliminating the layer of hyperkeratosis (dead skin cells) and the peach fuzz we all have on our faces, dermaplaning exfoliates and rejuvenates skin.
What skin conditions does it treat?
Dermaplaning is ideal for individuals with dull, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone.
How does it work?
By scraping away dead skin cells and the layer of buildup we all have on our skin, dermaplaning lets skin breathe, frees clogged pores, and allows for a more radiant complexion. This treatment is much more effective than at-home exfoliation.
What is the procedure like?
Your dermaplaning specialist will use a tiny surgical blade to eliminate dead skin cells and fine hair. Most patients are very comfortable throughout the treatment. Dermaplaning may feel similar to shaving or scraping along the skin. This treatment is not painful.
How many treatments will I need?
Regular treatments are recommended every four to five weeks.
How long does a treatment last?
Dead skin cells can build up again within four to five weeks following treatment, which is why we recommend regular treatments. The positive effects on your complexion can be long-lasting.
What can I expect after my procedure?
You may experience some redness directly following treatment, but can get right back to your regular schedule without delay. Skin will feel smooth and radiant once the redness subsides.
