Dermaplaning

Dermaplanning

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion along 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 yet effective.

Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion along 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 yet effective. There are 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 can heal up within 24-48 hours.

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. Promoting healthy new skin growth and targeting 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.

How much does Dermaplaning cost?

The treatment price is $75 for a dermaplane facial or $50 add onto any other service.

Frequently Askes Questions

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a surgical blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. It can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion or along with them for an enhanced result. This procedure will give your skin a more radiant appearance. Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper in turn making them more effective.

Am I a good candidate?

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or  uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help with concerns of acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation. The procedure is not ideal for active acne.

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

No. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture. 

Is the treatment safe?

This treatment is extremely safe when performed by a trained aesthetician. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also little to no downtime associated with this procedure. You may have some redness or tight feeling directly after your treatment, but should resolve within 24 hours.
