What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Please view video below to learn more...
Who is Dermaplaning For?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before having this treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Removes dead skin cells & vellus hair (peach fuzz) that traps dirt & oil
Promotes smoother texture & brighter complexion
Reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.
Allows for better absorption of products
Overall skin health
Recommended Course for Optimal Results:
Treatments can be performed about once per month for optimal results. Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it's best to allow the skin to complete a full rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Contraindications of Dermaplane Treatment:
Current inflamed acne lesions
Active cold sores
Open skin lesions
Use of Accutane currently or in the past six months
The use of prescription retinol within a week of treatment
Persons with any allergy to nickel
