What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique that removes dead skin cells and finevellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of your skin using a sterile surgical scalpel. This gentle scraping action not only reveals fresh, youthful skin but also allows for better penetration of skincare products, resulting in a more effective skincare routine.

Benefits of Dermaplaning:
  • Smoothes Skin Texture: By exfoliating the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth and soft.
  • Improves Skin Tone: Dermaplaning helps to even out skin tone by removing surface pigmentation and promoting cell turnover.
  • Enhances Product Absorption: With the barrier of dead skin cells and peach fuzz removed, your skincare products can penetrate deeper into the skin, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Regular dermaplaning sessions can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a more youthful appearance.
  • Safe and Painless: Dermaplaning is a safe and virtually painless procedure, making itsuitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
What to Expect During Your Dermaplaning Treatment:

During your dermaplaning session, our experienced esthetician will carefully glide a sterile surgical scalpel across your skin, removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The entire process typically takes around 30 minutes and is completely painless. You may experience a slight tingling sensation, but overall, dermaplaning is a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Aftercare and Maintenance:

Following your dermaplaning treatment, it’s essential to protect your newly revealed skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen daily. Additionally, we recommend avoiding harsh exfoliants and chemical peels for at least a week to allow your skin to heal properly. For optimal results, we suggest scheduling regular dermaplaning sessions every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain your glowing complexion.
