What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation. It essentially removes dead skin cells on the outermost layer of the skin as well as vellus hair or “peach fuzz.” Your skin will reflect light to give you a natural glow, and it will look and feel smoother, more supple and vibrant.
Who Can Perform Dermaplaning?
A licensed aesthetician who has been professionally trained can perform the treatment.
How Is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade. The area to be treated will be cleaned, and then the technician will hold the skin taut and gently scrape the skin with the blade, which is held at a 45-degree angle. This removes both the vellus hair and top layer of dead skin cells.
Will My Hair Grow Back Thicker?
No. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker. Vellus hair, which is most often located on our face, appears almost translucent or blonde.
How Often Do I Need To Have Dermaplaning Treatment?
When vellus hair is removed, it grows back the same texture and color it was before the Dermaplane treatment. This is why we recommend Dermaplaning every four to six weeks to keep with your natural growth cycle.
Can Men Receive Dermaplaning Treatment?
Yes. Men can are good candidates for Dermaplaning treatment. Surprise him with a gift certificate; he will love the results, and you will love how soft and sexy his face feels.
Is There Any Downtime?
No, there is no downtime after your Dermaplaning treatment. Your skin will feel amazing; also, after treatment your makeup will apply more smoothly for a flawless finish.
