Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a ten gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It also removes that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. Dermaplaning is great skin preparation before more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
Candidates for Dermaplaning are for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. Always discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting treatment.
Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
You’ll immediately look more radiant with an evener skin tone and texture. There is no downtime!
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.
