Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure that should be performed by a skilled professional. After dermaplaning, the hair will not grow back thicker or darker as the hair is too dense. This is a great option for hair that is too light for laser hair removal. 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 peach fuzz on the face.

Frequently asked questions

People often think that they are one and the same. They are not. Dermaplaning is performed by trained professionals using a surgical scalpel on tautly stretched skin. Shaving with a razor may remove the hair, but the exfoliation from a razor is far less than that of dermaplaning. Shaving also blunts the end of the hair, which can lead to ingrown hairs, razor burn, and a stubbly feel when it grows back. Dermaplaning requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region and resurfaces skin on a much deeper and more effective level than shaving. It cuts the hair at a perfect angle, so the hair is softer when it grows back.

Dermplaning has zero downtime. You will need to wear sunscreen after the treatment (although you should always wear sunscreen!) to reduce chance of redness.

Dermplaning is usually performed monthly. 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.

This treatment is a great option for men and women who are dissatisfied with the texture or dull appearance of their skin. Accumulation of dead skin cells and natural peach fuzz growth on the surface of our skin generally is the cause. Assisting the natural exfoliation process with dermaplaning is one of the best ways to achieve glowing, healthy skin.
This treatment may not be ideal for those with hypersensitive skin, skin conditions like rosacea, or significant skin concerns like extensive wrinkling or sun damage, which are often better addressed by more intensive treatment. In addition, it may not be ideal for those with active acne. Due to the use of a blade, acne can be irritated or even nicked during treatment, which can damage the skin further.
