OUR TOP 3 QUESTIONS ABOUT DERMAPLANING
Dermaplaning is the deepest form of manual exfoliation. If you’re looking for a smoother and brighter complexion, this safe and simple treatment will do wonders for your skin. This treatment also allows other facial treatments and at-home products to penetrate deeper into the skin, meaning you get the most out of your products.
How does it work?
Using a small surgical grade scalpel that is grazed over the skin at an angle, Dermaplaning removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils. This is a quick and easy treatment that will leave you with a clean, smooth complexion. Dermaplaning is completely pain free, as the scalpel does not enter the skin, instead it is placed at a 45 degree angle and brushed back and forth over the skin, removing vellus hairs, aka, peach fuzz. Dead skin cells are also removed in the process, allowing the skin to resurface. This can help tighten lose skin and improve acne scaring over time.
Who is Dermaplaning for?
We recommend this for anyone who wants to hit refresh on their skin. We would advise that people with active acne avoid this treatment and wait until breakouts are clear, as removing peach fuzz can allow the bacteria complete access to you pores. Please discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with one of our therapists before getting Dermaplaning.
Are there any side effects?
There are no side effects or downtime with Dermaplaning. However, your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure so it is important to wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
