What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple, effective, painless exfoliation of the dead epithelial (outer most layers of skin) tissue and also removes the peach fuzz on your face leaving your skin looking smooth and vibrant.
Who can benefit from this procedure?
Everyone can benefit from this procedure. It works great on patients with superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and mild acne scarring. This procedure allows skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers.
Pregnant women and women that are breast feeding and are not allowed to use any peeling agents or skin care products such as Retina A can also benefit from this procedure.
How is dermaplaning performed?
Our medical staff uses a scalpel with a 10s blade and abrade the skin with gentle strokes.
How long does the treatment take?
Dermaplaning takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
Will the hair on the face grow back thicker and longer?
The hair on the face (peach fuzz) is also called Vellus hair and it is short, fine, and light colored.
Dermaplaning does not cause increased hair growth. Vellus hair can only grow back as vellus hair (peach hair) and they grow at the same rate and thickness as they would have before you Dermaplaned.
Is the treatment safe?
It is one of the safest procedures performed by our trained professionals. And there is no downtime with this procedure either.
How often can one do Dermaplaning?
It can be done every 4 weeks. This allows your skin to go through its normal cycle of 30 days.
Can this procedure be performed with chemical peels or laser treatments?
Our professionals recommend that you do dermaplaning before the peel or laser treatments as this procedure prepares the skin for deeper penetration and more effective results.
Who should not be treated with this procedure?
Our trained professionals recommend that this procedure is not performed on those that are suffering from Acne and has an overproduction of oils from sebaceous glands. The oils from sebaceous glands typically travel up and connect with vellus hair (vellus hair is not connected with sebaceous glands). However, when the vellus hair is removed, the oils cannot travel up and remain under the skin and likely to interact with bacterial colonies resulting in more acne.
What do I do after procedure?
Make sure that you use a sunscreen to avoid hyperpigmentation.
