What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years and has recently become a celebrity MUST HAVE treatment
Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity amongst medical professionals across the world.
Using a medical grade tool and a delicate touch the technician abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
This is a great treatment for people who are pregnant or nursing a newborn who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to using peeling agents on the skin. Its also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. The hair often causes a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives patients healthier looking skin.
Many patients are concerned the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. This has been proven within our clinic as records have been recorded on a regular basis.
Removing epideral skin also allows products to penetrate more readily in the deeper layers.
Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scaring or fine lines and wrinkles.
The treatment results in a more refined, smooth “glowing” appearance.
