What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a technique that involves gently scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells using a fine, surgical-grade blade. This noninvasive exfoliation treatment removes peach fuzz and debris to reveal a smoother, softer complexion.
Dermaplaning is a gentle way to address excess peach fuzz and dead skin cells that dull the complexion’s surface. It essentially creates a smooth canvas which helps anti-aging products penetrate more effectively and greatly improves makeup application. It can also be used as a treatment to prep the skin for upcoming facial peels or laser treatments. This procedure can be performed on any skin tone or type, but it is not recommended for those with active acne breakouts.
What to Expect
Dermaplaning is a quick and painless procedure that requires no downtime. It feels quite similar to shaving your legs. One of our skilled practitioners will begin by thoroughly cleansing and drying your skin. She will then use a very fine blade to scrape off the dead skin cells and peach fuzz while holding your skin taut.
The entire treatment is usually complete in about twenty minutes, and you can go right back to your daily activities. There are no side-effects, but some patients notice mild redness right after treatment. We recommend wearing sunscreen to protect the skin.
