Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It is a favorite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses.

Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and facial hair, leaving the surface extremely smooth. It also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. Dermaplaning is also used to help prepare skin for more procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

About 30 minutes

ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?

There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
