WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive procedure which uses a special tool to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is performed as a stand alone treatment or can be combined with other skincare treatments to enhance their effectiveness. This is a wonderful form of exfoliation and will leave you red carpet ready. There is no downtime with this treatment. It will effectively smooth acne scars and give you the smoothest possible skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?
- Smoother skin
- Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil
- Enhances the effectiveness of other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and microneedling by providing deeper product penetration
- Reduces recent acne scars
- Reduces fine lines
- Produces immediate results with no downtime
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
When performed by a well trained professional, dermaplaning is very safe.
WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?
No, this is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape. Therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplaning. Terminal hair, however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplaning is designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut, it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
This procedure is performed on the face only.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
Dermplaning is usually performed every 3-4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 2-3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells.
WILL MY SKIN PEEL AS A RESULT?
Occasionally the skin will peel after a dermaplane. Repeated and frequent moisturizing post procedure will help to reduce the peeling.
