Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective exfoliating skin treatment, also called microplaning or blading.

It requires the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to physically exfoliate, smooth and clarify the skin. 

This non-invasive treatment gently “shaves” the skin's surface, removing the top most layer of dead skin along with fine vellus hair “peach fuzz” with immediate results and no downtime.

 

Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants and sun damage. This can cause the top

layer of your skin to appear dull, and make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells come in. 

It is great for people with dry or rough skin textures, aging, mature skin that tends to develop a buildup of dead skin cells, and also great for the treatment of Cellular turnover, as it slows down with age. Dermaplaning does what a skin “scrubbing” can’t do.  Scrubbing can damage delicate facial skin.  Dermaplaning brightens your skin, leaving it ultra smooth and refreshed with a healthy looking glow instantly!

 

BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING:

* Effective exfoliation for removing dead skin cells 

* Removes unwanted vellus hair “peach fuzz”

* Promotes smoother softer skin to the touch and appearance

* Provides deeper penetration / absorption of skincare products 

* Makeup application looks flawless & polished

* Works on all skin types and tones, including sensitive skin

* Diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles

* Reduces the appearance of scars

* Stimulates collagen 

* Helps reduce blackheads and enlarged pores

* Minimal risk of post-procedure breakouts

* Leaves you with a youthful glow and radiant complexion

* Completely pain free with no downtime

* Brightens the skin IMMEDIATELY

 

** Hair does NOT grow back darker or thicker **

Myth buster:  That very fine hair on the face known as “vellus hairs” will not grow back thicker or darker. 

However, dermaplaning is not recommended for removing very dark, coarse hair from the face.


 

How it Works:

A sterile surgical scalpel is used with a very delicate touch to gently scrape off the layers of dead skin cells and fine hair on the surface of the skin. This removes dull, dry skin and scrapes away layers of sun-damaged skin. The procedure is usually completed in 30 minutes or less. Prior to starting, your face will be cleansed thoroughly with 100% natural, vegan, high quality products. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment, but you should not feel any pain. After the procedure, a skin-soothing product is applied to your face.

 

Expectations After Dermaplaning:

Dermaplaning does not require any downtime. Dermaplaning is non-invasive and there are no chemicals used. You can have the treatment and return to regular activities afterward. You may experience a slight reddening of the skin, but this disappears. Some clients may notice minor redness for up to 2-3 days.

Since the skin is newly exposed, you will also need to protect it from harsh UV rays. Be sure to use a gentle sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Exposing your freshly dermaplaned skin to the sun could reverse the results and leave your skin sun damaged. Avoid pigment blotches by being diligent about wearing your sunscreen.

This is not a permanent procedure. You can expect the results to last about three to four weeks before needing another treatment.

It is recommended to improve your overall skin health. Update your at home daily skin care routine with quality professional grade skin care for continued results.

While there are over-the-counter kits available for this procedure to be done at home, it is not recommended due to increased risk of infection, complications and possible injury to the skin.
