What is dermaplanning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure (provided the person performing it is properly trained). Dermplaning should be performed by a credentialed medical aesthetician. No credentials? That’s a dealbreaker, ladies!. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently resurface the skin’s the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) which can often accumulate dirt and oil. One of the most common misconceptions about dermaplaning is that it will make the hair on your face grow back darker and thicker.  This is simply not true. Dermaplaning will not change the texture or number of hair follicles you have on the surface of your face.


Benefits of dermaplaning

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs, results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel. Dermaplanning can be the aesthetician’s foundation for antiaging treatments.  Dermaplaning followed by an enzyme treatment and mask is the ideal instant gratification service every client is looking for. Dermaplanning maximizes results when combined with other modalities such as HydraFacials, Advanced Clinical Facials, peels, and LED.  Clients will notice faster improvement from their professional home-care products, as active ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin for optimal performance.  Clients are always amazed by how  soft, glowing, and more youthful their skin looks and feels after the dermaplaning.  Improvement is cumulative with each treatment. Dermaplaning provides a completely clean palate, which will help your makeup go on more smoothly and stay on longer.


Who should consider dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a relaxing service that can be performed on all Fitzpatricks. Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels. Call or text me today to set up a consultation!
