What Is Dermaplaning?
An exfoliation procedure for facial skin, dermaplaning removes the outermost layers of dead skin cells, along with “peach fuzz” facial hair, to reveal revitalized smoother, brighter, softer skin, with no recovery or downtime. Dermaplaning helps reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Even pregnant women or people with sensitive skin or rosacea can benefit from this simple and gentle procedure.
What Are the Benefits?
- Softened and lessened appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimized appearance of pores
- More even skin tone and improved skin texture
- Alleviation of hyperkeratosis, which contributes to a dull complexion and acne
- Deeper penetration of products into the skin
- Better, flawless effects with makeup
How Can I Achieve Optimal Results?
The dead skin cells removed by dermaplaning regenerate in about three weeks, so best results are achieved with treatments every three to four weeks.
What Happens During Dermaplaning?
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and dried. A licensed aesthetician will pull an area of skin taut and use short swift upward featherlike strokes with a sterile surgical scalpel to scrape off dead skin cells and fine hair. The sensation is similar to a razor when shaving your legs. There is almost no discomfort. The treatment takes about 45 minutes.
What’s the Recovery Time?
You can immediately return to your daily routine and social activities. Your skin will be very sensitive to sun exposure, so you must wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Vellus “peach fuzz” hair will grow back at the same texture and rate as before the treatment; it will not grow back thicker or more quickly.
