What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a quick, noninvasive, painless procedure in which surface dead skin cells are manually scraped away. It increases cellular turnover, smooths and softens skin, and provides immediate results with absolutely no recovery time. Dermaplaning is very effective exfoliating procedure because it basically tricks the body into thinking it has an injury and needs to heal itself, immediately producing healthier, plump skin cells.
Dermaplaning can be used on all skin colors. As an extra bonus, Dermaplaning removes the fine vellus hair on the face. This is important because this excess “peach fuzz” can trap oil and dirt which can lead to other problems with your skin. It also scause facial cleansers to be less effective. Once you scrap away the dirt, oil and dead skin cells, facial products and treatments are much more effective because they can penetrate the skin more easily.
The service begins with a quick cleanse and pore extraction, progressing into the scraping procedure. The epidermal layer, as well as the fine vellum hair (peach fuzz), will be removed, leaving your skin baby smooth. The service ends with a hydrating collagen-stimulating mask.
In addition, Dermaplaning is one of the most effective facial exfoliating treatments available to patients. It is a process that has been used in conjunction with medical skin care for nearly the past two decades. Dermaplaning helps reveal radiant, healthier skin. Once the procedure is completed, you will leave with your skin glowing, without any redness or irritation. Of all facial treatments, none of them leave the facial skin feeling as clear or as soft as Dermaplaning!
