Dermaplaning is an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It can be a great treatment for those with sensitive skin, fine lines, enlarged pores or fine facial hair.
Dermaplaning improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the top, outermost layer of skin. This leaves skin more supple and vibrant while stimulating elastin renewal, thus resulting in healthier, firmer skin. Dermaplaning is one of the most effective facial exfoliation treatments available to patients. It is a process that has been used in conjunction with medical skin care for the past two decades because it is proven to be very effective at stimulating radiant, healthier skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The Dermaplaning procedure can be performed on any part of the face.
How Does It Work?
Our experienced specialists delicately exfoliate your skin, removing the fine hair commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”, producing a smooth texture and an appearance of fresh skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick, noninvasive, painless procedure in which surface dead skin cells are manually scraped away. There is no recovery time involved with this procedure.
Dermaplaning increases cellular turnover while smoothing and softening the surface of the skin. As an added bonus, it removes the fine vellus hair on the face, which can trap oil and dirt, leading to other skin problems. Once the fine hair, dirt, oil and dead skins cells are scraped away, skin products and treatments are more effective because they penetrate more deeply.
All skin types can benefit from this procedure. Results are immediately visible, and the skin is left looking smooth, supple and fresh. Optimally, dermaplaning can be done every four weeks, thereby allowing the skin to complete its normal skin rejuvenation cycle in between sessions.
A Commonly Asked Concern:
“I heard that when hair is removed this way that it may grow back darker or thicker.”
This is a myth. What is done topically to the hair does not affect the color or coarseness of the hair itself. What drives dark or course hairs are hormone levels. If you already have dark or course hairs it may be better to first treat with Laser Hair Removal.
