Skin_Care_TreatmentThinking about getting a Dermaplaning skin care treatment? Knowing all the facts about this procedure can help you ensure it is the right treatment for you.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe method for exfoliating the outermost layers of the skin to gently remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair—also known as “peach fuzz.” The word Dermaplaning is often mistaken with Dermabrasion, a more aggressive skin care treatment, which is why many patients avoid it. The truth is that this treatment is a simple shaving of the epidermis used to reveal a beautiful, smooth and radiant complexion.

Is Dermaplaning for Me?

Do you have rough, dry skin? Mild acne scarring? Dull skin? Superficial hyper pigmentation? Fine lines and wrinkles? Peach fuzz? If you said yes to any of these conditions, you will greatly benefit from Dermaplaning.

Is Dermaplaning Safe?

This skin care treatment is not only safe, but also quick and painless. In addition, Dermaplaning is also safe for pregnant and nursing women as it does not use of any chemicals that can be absorbed into the blood stream and potentially transferred to the baby.

How does it work?

A trained aesthetician delicately strokes the skin with a 10 gauge scalpel in order to gently abrade the epidermis. Dermaplaning is a quick procedure that doesn’t require any downtime, making it a great lunch-time skin care treatment.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning helps remove vellus hair which can cause a build-up of dirt and oils, improve the penetration of skin care products on your skin, reduce the appearance of superficial acne scarring and hyper pigmentation, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves the penetration of skin care products into the skin and will give the skin a fresher, smoother appearance.
