What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a tool to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. Dermaplaning can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion, or along with them for an enhanced result. This procedure will give your canvas a more radiant appearance. Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper in turn making hem more effective.
Am I a good candidate?
The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help with concerns of acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation. The procedure is not ideal for over active oily skin, or active acne.
Will it make the hair on my face grow back thicker and darker?
No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at it's original rate and texture.
Is the treatment safe?
This treatment is extremely safe. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.
Does it hurt?
Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion along the skins surface. It feels like gentle scraping and should not be painful.
What is the benefit of adding a chemical peel with Dermaplaning?
Hyperkeratosis is a build up of dead skin cells on the skins surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Promoting healthy new skin growth and targeting problems such as aging, sun spots and environmental damage.
How long is the treatment? How often can I have it done?
Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-40 minutes and should be performed every 4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.
