WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive procedure that uses a special tool to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells.

This is a wonderful form of exfoliation and will leave your red carpet ready. There is no downtime with this treatment. It will effectively smooth acne scars and give you the smoothest possible skin.

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.
