What is Dermaplaning?

Remove dead skin, pollutants, and debris from the skin.

Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin by getting rid of dirt and vellus hair (peach fuzz). Our specialist will manually exfoliate the outermost layer of the epidermis to remove all dead skin, impurities and debris. This will create a smooth, soft and vibrant complexion after your treatment. It is a different type of microdermabrasion, with dermaplaning they use a scalpel. With the tool they scrape the top layer of dead skin, it is recommended to have this treatment done every 3 to 4 weeks.

Dermaplaning After Care

We advise not to use any exfoliates for at least one week and to use sunscreen whenever you are going to be exposed to the sun.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is It Like To Be Treated?
+

We'll begin by cleaning your face and applying a solution that will open your pores. We'll scrape your face with a surgical steel blade held at a 45-degree angle during the procedure. While the various portions of your face are addressed, your skin will be held taut. A scalpel facial is a painless and non-invasive procedure. Many people compare the sensation to that of shaving their legs in the shower with a manual razor. As the blade makes delicate strokes across your face, you may hear a small whispering sound.

Is it necessary to schedule treatments on a regular basis?
+

Because a scalpel facial does not remove undesired facial hair permanently, you'll need to schedule follow-up treatments to keep your new look. You'll most likely be pleased with your outcomes and anxious to arrange your next session after your initial treatment. Most patients should wait at least four weeks before scheduling their next session. After being exfoliated, your skin will have four weeks to recover and replenish itself. And, because the facial hair will take some time to regrow, you won't require another treatment immediately away.

What Is the Treatment's Effectiveness?
+

The skin is scraped just enough in this procedure to fool it into thinking it has been damaged. This injury alarm stimulates collagen production and encourages the skin to begin rebuilding cells, resulting in the youthful, radiant, and rejuvenated skin seen in many patients following treatment.

Willn't my facial hair regrow thicker?
+

An old wives' story claims that when hair is shaved off, it grows back thicker and darker, however, dermaplaning has no such effect. This therapy has no effect on your hair follicles and has no effect on the growth rate of your facial hair. Hormones govern where you grow dark, thick hair and where you grow light, thin, vellus hairs, and only genetics can decide how fast your hair grows.
