Dermaplaning at glance
Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical scalpel blade to remove the top layers of dead skin cells. It improves the appearance of acne-scarred skin and smooths out facial wrinkles on the upper layers of the face. It is also an excellent treatment for melasma and environmentally damaged skin that is pigmented. Dermaplaning is an alternative to waxing and depilatories for including vellus (light) hair or “peach fuzz” which is difficult to treat with light therapy or lasers. Facial hair does not grow back darker and thicker, but returns slowly and becomes sparser with each treatment.
During your treatment, your skin will be held taught, followed by a gentle scraping of the dermal blade. You will feel little to no discomfort. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will feel soft and smooth, and look radiant.
Dermaplaning exposes the top layers of the epidermis, which then creates a more efficient response from resurfacing procedures such as, fruit enzymes, peels and light lasers. It can also be more effectively absorbed and can penetrate deeper following a dermaplaning treatment.
Dermaplaning is appropriate for every skin type, especially those with hypersensitive skin that cannot tolerate other traditional methods of exfoliation.
