WHAT IS DERMAPLANING
Dermaplaning is a procedure in which the skin is manually exfoliated to remove dead skin buildup and fine hairs. It’s different from shaving because the intent is to improve the appearance of the skin as opposed to the removal of hair. Dermaplaning makes the skin smoother, softer, and brighter. It can help reveal healthy skin beneath dead skin cell layers. Allows make-up to sit flawlessly and skincare products to better permeate, leaving your skin looking vibrant and fresh
If you’re looking for a great exfoliating treatment—and want something manual versus chemical (like a peel) then this procedure is for you. It is a great exfoliating option for all skin types. It’s also a good option for pregnant women or those with sensitive skin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Dermaplaning uses a sterile surgical scalpel specially designed for the face to remove the top layer of dead skin. Before your dermaplane treatment begins, we will thoroughly cleanse your face. Next your esthetician will gently pull your skin tightly and lightly while gliding the blade at a 45-degree angle in an upward motion using delicate, feathering strokes. The procedure is completely painless. Immediately after your session notice a smoother complexion, improved texture, luminescence, zero peach fuzz, and brighter looking skin.
For best results dermaplaning treatments are recommended every 3-5 weeks.
