Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine villus hair. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess villus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer and is an effective procedure involving the use of a surgical blade. During this fast, painless treatment, dead skin is removed from the epidermis, as well as vellus hair.
Benefits include lessening the appearance of acne scarring, any sun damage or hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning may be done as a standalone treatment or combine it with steam and extractions & a jelly facemask. It also allows in providing a blank smooth canvas on the skin for a healthy look or applying makeup.
Dermaplaning will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed, healthy, and brand new! The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and requires little to no recovery time.
Before & After
WILL HAIR GROW BACK THICKER & DARKER?
The only thing that could alter your hair texture and colour is a change in the hair follicle. This is commonly driven by hormonal changes. You can be sure that your facial hair will have the same texture and grow at the same speed as it did before.
IS DERMAPLANING THE SAME AS SHAVING?
No. It’s true that Dermaplaning uses a blade gliding over your skin BUT Dermaplaning and shaving are actually different treatments. Dermaplaning is considered an exfoliating treatment as well as a hair removal one. It uses a smaller and finer blade than regular razors to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz gently, safely and effectively.
DOES DERMAPLANING HURT?
The thought of a blade sliding across your face might be a scary one, we agree, but it’s not painful at all. Many people describe dermaplaning as a gentle tickle or a brushing sensation.
DERMAPLANING CAN CAUSE SPOTS
Quite the opposite! Because dermaplaning exfoliates the skin, it removes dead skin cells and built-up debris, which can block pores and lead to blemishes. That’s why we recommend using a new blade every time you dermaplane and always cleaning your face before the treatment. But, if you do have active acne breakouts you might be better off waiting for it to clear out.
