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

Physical exfoliation

Quick  procedure

NO DOWNTIME

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. 

 

Pregnant Women:

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

Skin cancer

Active cold sores

Uncontrolled diabetes

Dermatitis

Open skin lesions

Use of Accutane currently or in the past six months

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the side effects of dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.




Am I a good candidate?


The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone.




Is the treatment safe?


This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an properly trained skincare professional. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.




Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?


Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but Dermaplaning is entirely painless. There are possible risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes heal within 24-48 hours.




Will it make the hair on my face grow back thicker and darker?


No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.




What is the benefit of adding a chemical peel with Dermaplaning?


Hyperkeratosis is a build up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sun spots and environmental damage.




How long is the treatment? How often can I have it done?


Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.




What is the difference between Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion?


Both option treatments are forms of physical exfoliation. Dermaplaning removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin cells from the skin, microdermabrasion also exfoliate the surface of the skin, but not as thoroughly or deeply as dermaplaning does.
