What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe solution to skin exfoliation. Through the use of a fine scalpel and delicate touch, this procedure removes facial “peach fuzz” and exfoliates dead skin cells. This treatment is quick, easy, non-invasive, and involves the use of absolutely no chemicals.
How Does it Work?
There are two types of skin exfoliation: chemical and physical. While treatments like medical grade chemicals peels use exfoliating substances to remove dead skin cells and facial impurities, dermaplaning utilizes only a scalpel. Because of this, it is referred to as a physical exfoliation procedure.
During treatment, a skilled member of our medical staff uses a fine scalpel to delicately abrade the surface of the skin. With a series of light and gentle feathering strokes, they exfoliate dead cells from the skin while removing the fine hair on its surface. It’s recommended that this treatment be repeated on a monthly basis for continued exfoliation and hair removal.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is quickly being adopted by many aesthetic practices because of the amazing results it brings their patients. It is gentle enough to be used on patients that are pregnant or nursing, but effective enough to improve the appearance of mild acne scars.
By removing the “peach fuzz” that most people have, dermaplaning can also make it easier to apply foundation. Many women have a difficult time putting on their foundation smoothly and evenly because of these fine hairs; dermaplaning removes them with no downtime or irritation.
This entire process of hair removal and exfoliation can be completed in as little as 20 minutes, and features absolutely no downtime. Because of this, you can come into our office and undergo the procedure during your lunch break and be back at work with time to spare.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone is a candidate for dermaplaning: even women who are pregnant or breastfeeding can undergo the procedure. However, it is not recommended for patients that have open wounds or active acne because it can further irritate these conditions.
