What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing procedure that improves the skin’s appearance by removing the top layers through a method of controlled scraping of the skin. This treatment helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, uneven texture, and provides a healthier more radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is typically done immediately before a chemical peel and allows the peel to work more effectively. By removing the outer layer of dead skin, the peel may be applied more evenly for a more dramatic result.
Dermaplaning can be used on small areas of the skin or on the entire face and also removes vellous hair “peach fuzz ” which traps excess dirt and oil without growing back thicker. It improves scarring and smooths out small facial wrinkles leaving the skin refreshed, polished and glowing without visible irritation. Dermaplaning increases product penetration and can be done monthly!
BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING INCLUDE:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduction in the appearance of deep acne scars
- Smoother, more even complexion
- Removal of fine facial hair, referred to as “peach fuzz”
- Enhanced penetration of skin care products
HOW IS DERMAPLANING PERFORMED?
Dermaplaning is safely performed by using a sterile surgical blade. Don’t let the word blade overwhelm you, this is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment. Your certified aesthetician holds your skin while stroking the blade at a 45 degree angle.
This medical spa treatment is quick and painless.
WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?
This is a common misconception and is completely false. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker. We have two different types of hair on our bodies Vellous hair and Terminal hair. Vellous hair is most often located on our face and appears to be almost translucent or blonde. Where Terminal hair is much thicker and grows mainly on our under arms, pubic area, and eye brows. It can also be found on men’s legs and lower facial area.
When Vellous hair is removed it grows back the same texture and color it was before the Dermaplane treatment. This is why we recommend Dermaplaning every 4 to 6 weeks to keep up with your natural hair growth cycle. Terminal hair will grow back the same as it was before….coarse. If you have unwanted terminal hair that you never want to come back we do offer Laser Hair Removal treatments that can do just that.
