Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that refinishes the epidermis through a controlled scraping while at the same time removes fine velous hair that can trap excess dirt and oil. Dermaplaning can be used to treat a multitude of skin imperfections and can be used on most skin types safely and effectively. This procedure can be performed alone or combined with other exfoliation treatments such as chemical peels.
The benefits of this procedure include minimizing the appearance of fine lines, increased ability for your skin to absorb products, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and acne scaring, stimulates circulation and improves elasticity and texture of the skin. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which generally occurs in 3 weeks to one month’s time.
Does hair grow back thicker?
Although merely an old wives’ tale, clients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
What can you expect during your treatment?
Your face will be cleansed then the painless procedure will be performed (feels somewhat like a cat licking your face) we then finish with customized product application to smooth and nourish your skin. You may even opt to add a superficial peel for $40 to amplify the results.
How to prepare for this treatment:
Please avoid tanning the area to be treated. If you do go out in the sun, use sun block and apply every 80 minutes when in direct sun, for at least 3 weeks prior to your treatment. Deeply tanned skin should be treated 4 to 6 weeks after active sun exposure.
For 2 to 3 days prior to treatment, discontinue any irritant topical agents, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, glycolic acids, and retinols. These can be resumed 1 week after procedure.
After treatment instructions to follow for best results:
Please avoid sunlight or use sunscreen religiously. Your skin will look fabulous immediately after and you may resume most activities (please do not work up a sweat for the first 48 hours after procedure).
