Dermaplaning involves the use of a sterile, surgical grade scalpel to gently scrape, or “shave” off the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the face. This physical exfoliation technique leaves skin feeling and looking smoother, healthier and brighter. Unlike shaving, dermaplaning requires a specific technique and use of an extremely sharp, straight blade. This super effective treatment has become increasingly popular for those seeking a relatively quick and painless way to remove facial hair, while experiencing a variety of other skin benefits at the same time.
Dermaplaning can be performed as a stand-alone treatment, or before another facial treatment. The removal of the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of our skin composed of dead cells) and vellus hair (peach fuzz), allows products to better penetrate the skin. This is why some dermatologists and estheticians perform a chemical peel or other treatment post-dermaplaning. If you opt for only dermaplaning, the treatment alone will allow for your existing at-home skincare routine to perform better.
Physical exfoliation treatments such as dermaplaning help to stimulate the cellular turnover and regeneration process with little to no downtime. This results in new, even skin cells coming to the surface. After sloughing off the old dead skin and fine hair that lives on our faces, skin appears brighter and less dull. Because these treatments can be performed frequently, over time dermaplaning can help to significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars and uneven skin tone. Nearly anyone can benefit from dermaplaning, including those with sensitive skin and pregnant women. Clients with dry or rough skin, acne scarring or uneven skin tone will find dermaplaning especially effective.
