Dermaplaning is a safe and simple treatment for exfoliating the skin. If you feel like your skin is looking dull or dry lately, it’s a perfect choice. It’s also great for improving uneven skin tone, mild acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning also removes fine vellus hairs (the “peach fuzz” or baby fine hairs) on your face. And because vellus hairs (especially blond hairs) don’t respond well to laser hair removal, dermaplaning is a safe and gentle way to remove these hairs, leaving your skin feeling baby-soft, smooth, and more even-toned.
Using a delicate scraper, our aesthetician gently scrapes the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes, a process that takes about 15-20 minutes. Once she is done, she may then apply a topical chemical peel or Vitamin C treatment. Dermaplaning greatly improves the penetration and efficacy of topical products. Therefore, we highly recommend having clients have a peel or Vitamin C product applied immediately after the treatment.
There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning and the procedure can be done as often as every two weeks. And the baby hairs that are removed do not grow back any thicker or faster, as many fear can happen with traditional shaving.
