A safe, non-invasive procedure that gently exfoliates and removes the surface layer of dead skin cells. Increases cell turnover rate and removes facial hair allowing your skin to glow.
HOW IT WORKS
Dermaplaning is a relatively new form of manual exfoliation. It involves “blading” or “leveling of the skin” to remove the outermost surface layer of dead skin cells and facial hair, leaving the skin smooth and supple.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermplaning is a safe, non-invasive procedure that gently exfoliates and removes the surface layer of dead skin cells. This treatment increases cell turnover rate and removes facial hair allowing the skin to glow.
IS DERMAPLANING RIGHT FOR ME?
Dermaplaning is ideal for those with uneven skin, mild acne scarring, and fine lines. This treatment is also ideal for women who have a little extra fuzz on their face, as dermaplaning can be a pain-free alternative to tweezing and waxing. This procedure is a healthy treatment for the skin on your face, and therefore almost all people can benefit from the skin rejuvenation that dermaplaning promotes.
WHERE ON THE BODY CAN DERMAPLANING BE USED?
Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face.
WHAT IS A DERMAPLANING LIKE?
The treatment is performed by a Licensed Aesthetician and involves the use of a sterile surgical blade, known as a dermatone. The dermatone is held against taut skin and stroked in a manner similar to shaving. This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and hair. The treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes, with no downtime and results can be noticed almost immediately.
HOW MANY OFFICE VISITS ARE REQUIRED?
Patients notice a reduction in the visibility of mild acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as the temporary removal of extraneous translucent hairs on the face. It is recommended that this procedure is done every 3-4 weeks or once a month, which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
Please stop all Retinol/Retin-A products at least one week prior to treatment.
