What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, exfoliating treatment that manually removes dead skin cells and vellus hair on the face. Before the treatment, your  certified Dermaplane Esthetician will  prepare your skin, hold it taut, while a  sterile blade tool glides across the skin. This removes the top  layers  so newer skin under the surface is revealed. After this treatment, your skin will be gently wiped down with a warm towel to remove any impurities and peach fuzz, followed by an Enzyme cream mask. 

Does Dermaplaning hurt?

Dermaplaning is a completely painless treatment. The blade tool delicately glides just above the outermost layer of skin, removing any hair and dead skin cells in its path.

Will the vellus hair grow back thicker?

No. It is physiologically impossible for vellus hair, also known as peach-fuzz, to grow back thicker or darker. Vellus hair, when removed, will grow back the same.

What should I know BEFORE Dermaplaning?

If you are using Retinoids, discontinue 7 days prior to your treatment.

This treatment might  not be suitable for darker skin types that are  prone to hyperpigmentation, please ask your Esthetician before scheduling.

If you are experiencing an acne flair up before the treatment, please  wait until it subsides and heals. 

What should I know AFTER  Dermaplaning?

 There is zero downtime after a treatment. You may experience mild redness, but this will quickly subside.  

How long do results last?

The results are immediate! You’ll notice your skin is brighter, smoother and rejuvenated.  Typically results last between three to four weeks. 

How often should you Dermaplane?

We recommend Dermaplaning monthly; exfoliation is important for maintaining a healthy skincare regimen. Dermaplaning removes twenty-eight days’ worth of dead skin cells. It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next Dermaplaning treatment. We offer monthly memberships at a discounted price.
