Dermaplaning

DERMAPLANING

What is it?

Dermaplaning is a way to remove excess dead skin cells and peach fuzz to leave a smooth texture to your skin. Removing the top layer of the skin allows other products to penetrate deeper and allows makeup to be applied more flawlessly. Often times, dermaplaning can be used prior to a laser treatment or a chemical peel in order to achieve a greater result.

What to expect

Your face will be cleansed and dried and a toner may be applied to make the skin extra dry. A 10 blade, similar to the one used in surgical procedures, will be placed at a 45-degree angle on your skin and small, brisk strokes will be used to remove any peach fuzz and dead skin. The procedure should be painless and there is no associated downtime. Your skin may be slightly more sensitive to sunlight and SPF30 should be applied daily. You will immediately notice an improvement in skin texture and your skin will have a nice glow to it. It is recommended to wait at least 3 weeks between treatments as this gives the skin enough time to recover and complete another full cycle of putting dead cells to the top. Many patients question if removing the peach fuzz will cause the hair to come back darker and thicker. This is not the case as these hairs are different than traditional darker facial hair, and will grow back at the same rate and texture as before.
