What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive professional exfoliation treatment. Remove dead surface cells and vellus or “peach fuzz” hair. Vellus hair on the face tends to collect dirt and excess oil in the follicles. When excess oil sits on the surface of the skin over time, it can cause blackheads or invade your pores. Regular removal is an excellent anti-aging, anti-blemish treatment to keep pores free of excess debris. Customized to your skin’s needs, this no-downtime treatment gives instant results that revives your skin, leaving you Red Carpet Ready!
Am I a candidate?
Dermaplaning is recommended for people with:
- A dry, aged complexion
- Imperfections and fine lines resulting from the buildup of dead skin cells
- Rough, dry skin
What can I expect during treatments?
Before your treatment, we will cleanse and dry your skin. Next, you’ll sit back and relax as we gently scrape the top layer of dead skin cells, and vellus hair off of your face. Not only does this process remove dead skin cells, but it also triggers the cell regeneration process* and allows skin care products to penetrate your skin better. The procedure usually lasts 30-45 minutes, and afterward, we will moisturize your skin for deep hydration.
When should I expect to see results?
Immediately after your treatment, you can expect to see a noticeable glow.* Results typically last for several weeks and up to a month.* Monthly treatments are recommended, although this largely depends on your aesthetic goals. Dermaplaning is ideal for people with drier skin and women who are pregnant or nursing, as it does not use acid-based solutions to exfoliate. This treatment is great on its own, but it can also be coupled with a chemical peel or facial for even better results!
