Dermaplaning Skin Exfoliation Facial

Dermaplaning is a quick, noninvasive, painless service in which surface dead skin cells are manually scraped away and fine facial hair is removed. As one of the most effective facial exfoliation treatments, dermaplaning stimulates radiant, healthy skin and leaves the skin smooth and soft.

BENEFITS :

-Diminish fine lines

-Improve makeup aplication

-Smooth acne scarring

-Improve skin texture and tone

-Temporarily remove fine facial hair

-Generate new healthy cell growth

-Enhance penetration of skin care products

What is the technique and is it safe?

It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained technician. The technique is performed by using a specialised sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taught and gently scrapes the blade at a 45-degree angle. There is no more risk than when a man shaves his face. Although unlikely, there is a chance of a small scrape or nick in the skin.

Who is a good candidate for Dermaplaning and what are the contraindications?

Dermaplaning is beneficial for patients with rough, dry skin,  superficial hyper pigmentation, mild acne scarring and those with fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types and colors and provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals. Dermaplaning cannot be performed in individuals who are using Accutane or blood thinners or who have active shingles, hemophilia, or weak delicate skin. If you suffer from acne or over production of oil, we do not recommend dermaplaning. We do not recommend the LED Photon part of the facial if you suffer from epilepsy, are pregnant or breast feeding, take any photosensitive drugs or cortisone/steroid injections.

Will the facial hair grow back thicker?

No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest, or back. The other type of hair is called terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows, and the lower face of men. Hairs are always one or the other and they are not damaged or altered by the process of cutting or removal. So after dermaplaning, vellous hair grows back with its same characteristics.

How often can dermaplaning be done?

Dermaplaning can be done every 3-4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 2 – 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days before repeating.
