Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face. A sterile surgical blade is used to remove dead skin cells that dull the skin, and vellus hair that accumulate dirt and oil. This form of exfoliation smooths the skin and allows for the active ingredients in skincare products and services to penetrate deeper into the skin. Alternatives to dermaplaning include microdermabrasion or scrubs for exfoliation and waxing or threading for hair removal. There is no single treatment to replace dermaplaning.
Vellus hairs will not grow back thicker and darker. Vellus hairs will grow back at the same rate and texture as before. Dermaplaning can be done every 4-8 weeks depending on your skin type and the results you want to achieve. Dermaplaning is great for those with dry, rough skin because it helps to minimize superficial acne scarring and uneven skin tones. It also helps with mature skin because it gets rid of dead skin cell build up. Dermaplaning does not require any downtime.
Dermaplaning is not the same as shaving. Dermaplaning uses a single blade that is much sharper than a razor, and a new blade is used with each patient. Our certified dermaplaning technicians also use light, feathering strokes at different directions depending on the area of the face, while keeping the blade at a 45 degree angle.
Dermaplaning is an excellent service that provides immediate and cumulative results with each service you receive. Your face will instantly feel softer and look brighter.
