What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure designed to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells along with fine vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). This results in a smoother and brighter complexion. The procedure is quick and offers the benefits of an exfoliation without the downtime. This is a perfect treatment option for pregnant women or those with sensitive skin, as you don’t have to worry about any contact with harsh chemicals.
As we age, our skin’s cellular turnover rate slows down. This is the cause of build up and dull looking skin. A dermaplaning treatment improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, fades any dark/acne scars and allows for better product penetration. Your Vitamin C will actually work a lot better! It is also wonderful for laser treatments as it increases your bang for your buck by removing the cells blocking the laser energy.
A common misconception is that this treatment will cause your hair to grow back thicker and with a five o’clock shadow appearance. Truth is, the hair on your face is very different from the rest of the hair on your body in that it is far finer and lighter in coloration. Dermaplaning will not make the hair coarse or darker.
