WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A DERMAPLANING?

The Dermaplaning treatment can exfoliate, smooth out the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines as well as improving skin imperfections. Most people are candidates for this skin treatment. Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.

Benefits include:

  • It painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum to stimulate cellular turnover with little to no downtime.
  • It is a great option for clients with sensitive skin and pregnant women who are looking for a deep exfoliation.
  • It can be performed prior to treatments like facials, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels for better product penetration.
  • It can be performed frequently.
  • It helps makeup go on smoother and more evenly.
  • It can help significantly lighten posti-inflammatory scars from past acne.
  • It does not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.
HOW DOES THE DERMAPLANING WORK?

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method that requires the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the top layer of the skin (the stratum corneum - dead skin layer) and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz.

This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. By removing that dead layer and hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.

WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED AFTER THE DERMAPLANE?

After the Dermaplaning treatment, you will notice an instant improvement in skin texture and tone. There is no downtime associated with this treatment.
