Dermaplaning: What is it?
Dermaplaning is a safe, effective, and PAIN FREE treatment that uses a gentle surgical shaving tool to remove dead skin cells. This simple, in-office treatment also removes the top layer of facial hair and allows the esthetician to revitalize the skin with a series of steps to brighten and soften its appearance. It is an anti-aging procedure that exfoliates, and is great if you are looking to target fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).
The best candidates for dermaplaning:
- Have fine lines and wrinkles, moderate acne scars, and uneven texture and tone
- Are not prone to skin rashes and skin irritations
- Have not had a recent chemical peel
- Do not have frequent fever blister or cold sore flare-ups
- Desire youthful, better-looking skin
Is it painful?
No numbing is needed with dermaplaning, since it’s a gentle, non-invasive procedure. There’s no pain associated with dermaplaning and the sensation is comparable to having the leg shaved. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and dried.
What to expect:
A scalpel or other shaving tool is used to gently remove the dead skin cells, debris, and fine hair of the top layer of skin. The professional will use short, feathering strokes to improve the appearance of the face. The entire face from the forehead to the chin will be treated and will benefit from dermaplaning. Treatments take around 30 minutes and can be performed about once per month for optimal results.
With dermaplaning, there’s no downtime, but there are instantaneous results. Right after a treatment, patients will notice more radiant skin that has a more even tone and texture. The skin will look more youthful and rejuvenated. Also, the skin will look and feel smoother since fine hair was removed. It’s recommended to get a series of treatments for the best results.
