Dermaplaning is a safe and effective form of exfoliation that takes 30 minutes and requires no downtime.
How does Dermaplaning work ?
Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin.
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin, such as a light chemical peel. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil.
What can Dermaplaning treat ?
Dermaplaning reduces the appearance of fine lines, visible acne scars, and dark spots.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.
What is a Dermaplaning session like ?
During the session your dermatologist or esthetician will skillfully use a sterile surgical scalpel at the correct angle to remove the top layer of old, dull skin, along with all your peach fuzz.
What results can be expected from Dermaplaning ?
You should obtain a more healthy appearance after the first session, but best results occur after a series of treatments. Typically a series includes six treatments, with visible improvements after two or three treatments.
It’s amazing what this procedure does to correct “old” skin and bring new skin to the surface.
