4 things you should know about Dermaplaning treatment

Dermaplaning is a gentle method of deeply exfoliating the skin.
A surgical blade is worked over the face on a 45 degree angle to gently remove the dead surface cells and that little layer of peach-fuzz facial hair, leaving the skin ultra-smooth, fresh and glowing.

  • Dermaplaning is not shaving

  Shaving is defined as "cutting the hair off one's face with a razor."
Dermaplaning uses a scalpel blade, not a razor, but it does cut the hair off the face.

  What is the difference? 

    • Dermaplaning is more aggressive than shaving. It removes the dead surface cells and that little layer of peach-fuzz facial hair.

    • Dermaplaning uses a surgical, disposable blade. 

    • Dermaplaning is a professional treatment and should not be performed at home. 

    • Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation treatment intended to remove dead skin cells and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and improve skin tone and texture. 

  • Dermaplaning is recommended to be performed every 4 weeks.

  • Instant results

  You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. 
Your skin will look brighter immediately after you’re finished with the treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results.
And because you don’t have all those dead skin cells in the way, your skin is able to drink up your other skin-care products more effectively.

  • Will my hair grow back thicker?

  Dermaplaning does not cause hair to grow back thicker or darker on the face because this treatment shaves off but doesn’t change the follicle of your hair.
Your peach fuzz (or vellus hair) and will grow back as it was before between the 4-6-week period.

  • For what skin type?

  Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.
The only contraindications for Dermaplaning are the following:

    • Active and inflamed acne.

    • Open wounds.

    • Allergic to nickel. 

    • Use of Accutane within 6 months of treatment.
