Dermaplaning facial is a unique exfoliation technique that utilizes precise, practiced strokes of a medical instrument to gently remove dull skin cells and fine, vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz.” This is an effective exfoliation alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels for clients with sensitive skin and perfect for a smoother more even texture.
Dermaplaning is a painless exfoliation technique that uses a surgical blade to gently remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair from your face. If you have sensitive skin, this is an effective exfoliation alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels that will leave your skin looking and feeling smooth.
Contrary to some peoples’ belief, Dermaplaning will not cause fine, vellus hair to grow back thicker or darker. In fact, dermaplaning vellus hair, or “peach fuzz,” is simply trimmed from the skin’s surface leaving hair follicles intact. Over time, and with ongoing dermaplaning treatments, vellus hair will appear even finer. We love this treatment because you can return to all regular activities and enjoy instant noticeably smoother skin.
Your treatment will begin with a thorough cleansing and drying of your skin. Next, we pull an area of your skin taut with one hand and hold a sterile 10-gauge blade at a 45-degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. It’s a simple procedure, you’ll barely feel it. And if you have resilient skin, ask about combining dermaplaning with microdermabrasion in the same session for even better results.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
