is an exceptional method of removing the outer layers of inert skin cells as well as vellous or peach fuzz hair. The result is smooth and rejuvenated skin with a hair removal benefit. Internally your skin will reflect light to give you a natural glow as well as feel and look smoother, more supple and vibrant.
This procedure is not traumatic and is a non-invasive way to remove dead skin cells to renew the skin. Our licensed medical esthetician will use a blade to stroke the skin at an 45 degree angle similar to shaving. She will prepare and cleanse your skin prior to the treatment and apply a treatment mask and moisturizer afterward.
This is a very safe procedure and only requires that you avoid taking any medications that could cause the blood to thin such as Accutane, Retinols, or any anti-inflammatory drug. Finally do not wax before your treatment since this interrupts the hair growth cycle. Other than this there is no special preparation before or after your procedure and you can combine the Dermaplaning with a light peel or facial. We offer all of these options for you!
Dermaplaning is safely performed by using a sterile surgical blade. Don't let the word blade overwhelm you, this is a very safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment and sometimes can be compared to shaving. Your medical clinician holds your skin taut while stroking the blade against the skin at a 45 degree angle. This particular medical spa skin treatment is quick and painless.
This is a common misconception tied to Dermaplaning and is completely false. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker. We have two different types of hair on our bodies - vellous hair which is most often located on our face and appears to be almost translucent or blonde. Where terminal hair is much thicker and grows mainly on our under arms, pubic area and eyebrows. It can be found on mens legs and lower facial areas.
When vellous hair is removed it grows back the same texture and color it was before the Dermaplaning treatment. This is why we recommend Dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks to keep up with your natural hair cycle. Terminal hair will grow back the same as it was before - coarse. If you have unwanted terminal hair that you never want to come back, we do offer Laser Hair Removal treatments that can do just that.
Dermaplaning is one of Facial Esthetician's favorite types of exfoliation and we encourage anyone who is looking for a quick fix for their dull skin and fuzzy face to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more about our Dermaplaning treatments.
