Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical blade to gently scrape away the top layer of dead epidermal cells.
Dermaplaning is ideal for anyone interested in:
- Removal of vellous facial hair (peach fuzz) which can trap excess dirt and oil.
- An alternative hair removal technique
- An alternative to Microdermabrasion which is not recommended for clients who have visible broken capillaries.
Dermaplaning is a virtually painless procedure. You may feel a mild scratching during the treatment. You may appear to have a mild sunburn. Aftercare is simple and easy, requiring only gentle cleansing and a good sunscreen. Dermaplaning is best if done in a series and can safely be done every four weeks. For a more aggressive treatment, dermaplaning can be followed by an enzyme peel.
Dermaplaning offers patients a solution for skin rejuvenation and hair removal that gets long-lasting results. The procedure resurfaces the skin by scraping away the top layer of dead skin cells. A special blade is used to carefully remove the dead cells. Dermaplaning removes hair that you don’t want, such as the hair over your upper lip, and it removes peach fuzz from all over your face. Peach fuzz can trap dirt and oil, dulling your skin and causing clogged pores and blemishes. Removing it can improve the appearance of your skin and minimize your pores. Dermaplaning is also used as an alternative to microdermabrasion for patients who can’t have it, such as those who have visible broken capillaries. The result is a vibrant, healthy complexion with tighter skin. Your skin will look younger, and you’ll achieve that healthy “glow” that will turn heads.
