We love hearing how soft and smooth the skin feels after a dermaplane. This manual exfoliation treatment is performed to exfoliate, smooth, and revitalize the skin. Using a surgical blade, our certified aestheticians will remove the dull, damaged and dead cells that make up the top layer of your skin.
Dermaplaning removes “vellus” hairs, which are the soft, blonde hairs that you may find on your upper lip, and often on your cheeks, forehead and chin. This hair is also known as peach fuzz. Exfoliating the top layer of skin cells triggers the natural regeneration of new skin cells. This can lead to a luminous, healthy glow.
The process is painless, effective and relatively fast. At one of our two comfortable office locations, you can relax under the care of our certified aestheticians. Dermaplaning looks and feels like someone is shaving your skin. But the surgical blade used by our aestheticians is sharper than any home razor. Most patients equate the treatment to the sensation of shaving.
Dermaplaning is not performed on “terminal” hairs, which include your eyebrows (those stay put!) and nose hair. We offer waxing/shaping services upon request.
In addition to generally improving the radiance of your skin, and producing a smooth, silky feel, dermaplaning can address specific skin conditions:
Unfortunately, the internet is filled with examples of DIY dermaplaning, but note that this is never a good idea. Not only are home razors dull and prone to cutting the skin, but there is a specific technique in which we are trained and experienced. This is a medical-grade treatment, after all. Your aesthetician will hold your skin taut while gently and precisely removing the outer layer of skin cells. A specific pattern is used across the entire face, and the blade must be held at the right angle to cleanly remove the cells.
Also – the newly exfoliated skin will be very absorbent. It is a great time to apply serums, creams and other products, which is another reason that makes it so important to discuss product recommendations with our certified aestheticians.
Not at all! This common misconception about dermaplaning is a persistent one. Shaving, waxing, dermaplaning, threading – your hair will not grow back thicker or darker, but will instead be the same color and thickness as if you had not performed the hair reduction in the first place.
Dermaplaning can be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks. So it works along with your natural hair growth cycle.
Yes you can. Dermaplane is safe during pregnancy and is the perfect treatment if you just aren’t seeing that “pregnancy glow” that some people seem to rave about.
