Dermaplaning is an effective facial exfoliating treatment available to patients. It helps to reveal radiant and healthier skin. Once the procedure is completed, you will leave with your skin glowing, without any redness or irritation. Of all facial treatments, none of them leave the facial skin feeling as clear or as soft as Dermaplaning.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning or as facial shaving is a non-invasive procedure that is performed by our licensed aesthetician. During the treatment, the aesthetician uses a tool to “shave” away the top layer of the skin, thus revealing the younger-looking skin that’s been hiding beneath dead skin cells. This highly effective exfoliation technique is usually performed in less than thirty minutes, with most clients requiring a monthly visit to maintain results. This treatment can be added on to a facial or a peel to enhance exfoliation.
Candidates for Dermaplaning:
- Excess facial hair
- Rough, uneven skin texture
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
How is dermaplaning performed?
After cleansing, toning and degreasing the face, your skin care specialist will gently scrape away the surface layer of dirt, oil and dead skin cells with a sterile surgical scalpel. Each area of the face is carefully scraped until properly “cleaned”. The dermaplaning procedure often takes about 20-30 minutes and requires no recovery time. After the procedure, a chemical peel may be applied for further exfoliation, evening of skin tone and smoothing out the appearance fine lines and wrinkles. Extractions of any pustules and blackheads are then done after the peel is neutralized. Lastly, special clinical products designed especially for your skin type and concerns, as well as UV protection, will be applied. You will not leave with red or irritated skin, and you are free to reapply makeup at any time.
The procedure can be completed as often as every 2 weeks, although each patient’s needs may vary. Patients must keep their newly sensitive skin in mind and wear sunscreen on a regular basis to prevent any further pigmentation.
