Dermaplaning is a safe, precise and highly effective superficial exfoliation procedure. It relies on the simplest of tools, a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than 30 minutes, with no down time post-treatment. It is painless, quick, and the results are immediate! It leaves behind a smooth beautiful face.
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs, which can accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.
Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture. It helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a build up of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate the skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated).
Our dermaplane procedure can often be combined with other treatments for greater benefit!
