Get the Super Smooth Skin You’ve Always Wanted
So if you think that men are the only ones who should be shaving their faces, you probably haven’t heard of dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a popular procedure that involves a scalpel and a licensed esthetician that shaves your face with a razor-sharp scalpel. It sounds scary, but it’s seriously popular among those who want super smooth, even-toned skin without using sometimes-irritating chemical exfoliants. Dermaplaning a great choice for those with sensitive skin and chronic dryness who want to slough off dead skin cells without irritating their skin in the process.
The secret behind dermaplaning is the skin resurfacing using an extremely fine, surgical-grade blade to gently exfoliate the epidermis, removing fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin cells to reveal a smooth, vibrant, red carpet ready complexion. After dermaplaning, you can pretty much expect to instantly see smoother, brighter, more even-toned skin. By eliminating the peach fuzz and dead skin cells, dermaplaning keeps the face smooth and helps with the skin increase product absorption and efficacy. As a result, makeup goes on more flawlessly, and skin looks brighter and more firm and your face looks smooth, soft and even-toned.
Dermaplaning also helps the cells to turnover faster and stimulate collagen and is safe for most skin types. The treatments is painless, involve zero down time, and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Side effects are minimal but a consultation is needed for those with extremely sensitive skin, active acne, wounds or are on Accutane. Dermaplaning can be done every 2 to 4 weeks to exfoliate the skin and continue to maintain the health of your skin.

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently remove the layer of dull, dead skin cells and vellus hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active breakout and men with heavy facial hair. If you have active acne there are other treatments available that would be more beneficial, and it is necessary to wait until breakouts are healed before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process that does not use acids or enzymes to remove dead skin cells. All of the exfoliation is achieved during your treatment and you will not peel or visibly shed skin after your service, while Peels can result in dramatic peeling in the days following a service. Dermaplaning provides a good alternative to peels for those who desire professional grade exfoliation without the potential social downtime.

Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that includes deep cleansing, professional exfoliation in the form of dermaplaning followed by restorative treatment and finished with skin care suited to your unique skin. Dermaplaning has a similar sensation to close a shave which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells simultaneously.
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the immediate removal of peach fuzz is an added benefit which renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skin care products are better able to penetrate the skin following a dermaplaning service which allows them to work more efficiently. Your cosmetics will also go on smoother. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
Anyone who has unwanted facial hair and would like an exfoliation benefit from their skin care treatments. Dermaplaning is also safe for expecting mothers and those with super-sensitive skin.
After a Dermaplaning treatment your skin needs time to heal and restore. Treat the skin gently, using only hands to cleanse for at least 2 days and wearing sunscreen every day.
No, dermaplaning will not alter your natural hair growth. As we remove the vellus hair we are cutting it at the thickest part of the hair follicle so it may appear thicker or darker for a brief period of time. However, this perceived difference is cosmetic and most clients do not notice.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
