Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing procedure, removing top layers through controlled scraping, stimulating processes that reduce the signs of aging like fine lines and uneven skin textures. This promotes a healthier, more radiant complexion.
Dermaplaning is often done just before a chemical peel, since removing this top layer makes the peel more effective. The procedure has been used for medical skincare for two decades.
The procedure can be used on the entire face or targeted just where you need it. It removes vellous hair (peach fuzz), and when it grows back, it will remain fine and light. Dermaplaning reduces scarring, smooths out wrinkles, and leaves fresh, polished, glowing skin with no irritation. The procedure can be done monthly as needed.
Your esthetician uses a special took to exfoliate dead skin cells, intensifying the benefits of a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or BBL. It also removes unwanted facial hair effectively, without the discomfort of other hair removal procedures like waxing or depilatories.
•Exfoliates skin with broken capillaries.
•Improves the results of microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatments.
•Little to no downtime, with minimal redness after the procedure.
•Temporarily removes “peach fuzz” hair.
•Works just like shaving.
If you have dull, dry skin, it’s often because dead skin cells at the surface are acting as a barrier, preventing moisturizers and serums from penetrating properly. The same barrier traps impurities and prevents new cells from coming to the surface. After dermaplaning, this barrier is removed, allowing your skin to respond better to treatment products. Impurities can be expelled, and new, revitalized skin cells can come to the surface. This leaves your skin healthy and revitalized.
In addition, dermaplaning helps reduce the appearance of acne scars. This happens because removing the surrounding skin evens out the texture around the scars, leaving your face smoother and the acne scars less noticeable.
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, and regular treatments are usually scheduled three to four weeks apart.
Vellous hairs, what we call “peach fuzz,” are tiny and translucent. These are different from the terminal hair that grows under our arms, in pubic areas, on our eyebrows, on our legs, and on mustaches and beards in men. Terminal hair sometimes appears to grow back coarse, but vellous hair grows back the same – tiny and translucent.
