WHAT IS DERMAPLANE?
A trained medical professional performs Dermaplaning in the office. The skin is cleaned and dried thoroughly prior to starting. A medical blade is used to manually exfoliate the outermost layer of skin (the stratum corneum – mostly made of dead skin cells) and the peach fuzz (called vellus hair) from the face. Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment for almost anyone! It is a great choice for those with skin sensitivities to products, or those women who are pregnant or lactating. The only true contraindication for dermaplaning are those individuals who have active cystic acne, as it could potentially cross-contaminate the skin and make the acne worse.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Mechanical Exfoliation – Mechanical exfoliation is a way of physically removing the dead skin cells. Your skin is made up of layers and layers of cells, all stacked on top of one another. New cells are created at the bottom and they slowly make their way up to the surface, and those cells on the surface flake off to make room for new skin cells. Better Product Penetration – Dermaplaning doesn’t just make your skin feel smooth and soft! It actually allows your daily products to penetrate more effectively. Removes Your Peach Fuzz – Ladies…no one wants a hairy face, right? Dermaplaning safely and effectively removes that peach fuzz. No, your hair is not going to grow back darker and coarser. That is just a myth. Your Makeup Goes on Better – It is the secret of Hollywood. How can you get that flawless looking, smooth skin? Dermaplaning. Once we’ve removed those dead skin cells and the peach fuzz you will be amazed at how much better your makeup is applied. Dermaplaning is also a great ad-on to other treatments such as chemical peels or Cutera®Laser Genesis™.
