Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique used to remove the outer layers of dead skin to instantly reveal smooth, healthy and glowing skin while also removing fine facial hair.
Dermaplaning also allows products to penetrate more effectively resulting in vibrant skin. This is a great stand-alone skin rejuvenation treatment or an enhancement to facials, peels and other skincare services. Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types and no downtime is experienced after treatment.
The Positive Results
Important Dermaplaning Notes
It’s important to note that your hair will grow back exactly the same color and thickness as it was previously. However, because you are removing the dead layer of skin and vellus hair, your skin will appear much brighter than you’ve experienced in the past, and then after the regrowth, it seems darker. Each time you get dermaplaned, you’re removing about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is recommended every three to four weeks.
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that involves using a specialized scalpel-like tool to gently scrape away the outermost layers of dead skin. This treatment not only reveals a smoother, more radiant complexion but also removes fine facial hair, often referred to as “peach fuzz”.
Unlike chemical exfoliation or microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method. It doesn’t involve the use of chemicals or suction. This gentle scraping technique provides immediate results and is suitable for most skin types, including those with sensitive skin.
No, Dermaplaning is generally painless. Clients often describe the sensation as a light brushing against the skin. The treatment is performed with a specialized tool by a trained professional to ensure the utmost safety and comfort during the procedure.
Dermaplaning will not cause your facial hair to grow back thicker or darker. The fine facial hair (peach fuzz) will grow back at its usual texture and rate. This is a common myth, but the structure of the hair follicle isn’t changed by the treatment
A typical Dermaplaning session lasts between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of the treatment area. For optimal results and maintaining smooth, radiant skin, it’s generally recommended to undergo Dermaplaning every 3-4 weeks.
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure with minimal side effects. Some clients may experience slight redness immediately after the treatment, but it usually subsides within a few hours. As it’s a non-invasive treatment, there’s no significant downtime. However, your skin may be more sensitive to the sun, so wearing sunscreen post-treatment is essential.
