What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple medspa treatment that delivers a smoother, healthier, more youthful and dewy complexion. It is safe, comfortable and suitable for almost every skin type. Vellus hair (commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”), dry skin, dead skin cells, and environmental particles can build up on the surface of the skin causing an unhealthy looking or dull complexion. The removal of this vellus hair and particles immediately reveals a healthy, dewy glow. Additionally, dermaplaning triggers the cell regeneration process for continued vibrant and healthy looking skin.
The Dermaplaning Procedure
After cleansing the skin, your aesthetician will use a small, surgical scalpel to gently shave the skin’s surface. This process will remove the top layer of dead skin along with any fine vellus hair. It is a common misconception that shaved hair grows back thicker or coarser- this is simply not true and dermaplaning will not cause this. Additionally, vellus hair is so fine that the regrowth is soft and barely noticeable. The dermaplaning procedure itself is comfortable, painless, and there is no downtime.
After the skin is freshly exfoliated and pores are open, patients will often opt to enhance their dermaplaning treatment by infusing their skin with a high-powered boost of moisture with Hydrafacial or by applying an instant lifting mask, such as Invisilift with Skin Better Science, for a red carpet ready finish.
Is Dermaplaning Right For Me?
Dermaplaning is safe for almost any skin type and condition, except those experiencing active breakouts or infections. Since no chemicals are used, it is a compelling choice for those who have topical sensitivities or for women who are either pregnant or nursing.
