What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the physical exfoliation of the skin, which removes dead skin cells along with vellus hair and leaves you with a brighter, smoother surface. It has been a well-kept secret among celebrities for years. If you’ve ever wondered what people are doing to achieve a natural glow, this is it! Dermaplaning results are immediate, convenient, and are a great alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels with no downtime.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning achieves maximum exfoliation by using an instrument to gently scrape away the outermost layer of dead skin. We follow up with a corrective mask for optimal results. We also offer our guests the option of using a facial mask afterward as well. Removing the dead skin cells will reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

What is The Dermaplaning Service Like?

As long as you’re getting your dermaplaning service done by a professional, these treatments are safe and painless, with most guests saying the session feels like gentle scratching on their skin.

Why is Dermaplaning Good for Your Skin?

Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen in your skin, so it works great as an anti-aging treatment. This procedure will not get rid of wrinkles or sunspots, but it does remove the top epidermal layer of skin and dead skin cells for a healthy glow. Dermaplaning smooths, tightens, tones, and brightens skin.

How is Dermaplaning Different From a Peel?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process that does not use acids or enzymes to remove dead skin cells. While peels can result in dramatic peeling in the days following service, dermaplaning won’t result in peeling or shedding skin. Dermaplaning is a convenient way to exfoliate your skin for a radiant glow because it requires virtually no downtime. Any redness that might occur should go away quickly.

How Often Should I Get Dermaplaning?

For optimum anti-aging benefits, dermaplaning should be done once per month (every four weeks).

Is There Any Downtime for Dermaplaning?

One of the best parts of our dermaplaning service is convenience. Dermaplaning does not cause your skin to peel, and any redness that might occur should go away on its own quickly. Because there is no downtime associated with the service, it’s a great alternative to peels and microdermabrasion.

Can I Wear Makeup Right After the Dermaplaning Treatment?

Yes, makeup can be applied following a dermaplaning treatment.

Who Can Have a Dermaplane Facial?

Dermaplaning is suitable for people of all ages. While most skin types can benefit from the treatment, we don’t recommend the service for people with acne-prone skin. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with your esthetician before starting a treatment. This is a great option if you’re pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.

What Should I Expect From Dermaplaning Before and After?

Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that has a similar sensation to close a shave, which removes vellus hair and dead skin cells at the same time. Your skin will glow immediately with a more even skin tone and texture. Following the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink. It’s important to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

How Should I Care for My Skin After a Dermaplaning Service?

After a dermaplaning treatment session, your skin needs time to heal and restore. Cleanse your skin gently, using only your hands for at least two days.
