Dermaplaning is a medical treatment that consist of a manual exfoliation of the skin using a sterile surgical blade. The scalpel is aimed at a 45 degree angle and then dragged slowly across the skin. The top layer of the skin is gently scraped to remove dull, dead skin and peach fuzz. The results are a healthier, more radiant, brighter complexion and even skin tone. Several skin concerns are addressed as well as improved absorption of your skincare. You can also expect your makeup to go on much smoother. Dermaplaning is a great alternative to a Chemical Peel for those with sensitive skin. It’s also a fantastic prep or inclusion of a multistep skin treatment.

What skin type can be treated?
All skin types, from dry to oily. If you have sensitive skin or are pregnant, this is a great deep exfoliation option. However, clients with active acne may not be the best candidates. Consultations are recommended to ensure this is the right treatment for you.

You will receive a cleansing of the skin, mask, LED light therapy, and oxygen infusion included in your Dermaplaning treatment.
When do I see results?
Results are immediate and are prolonged with a proper at home and treatment regimen.
How long do the results last?
Dermaplaning removes about a three weeks’ worth of dead skin. Monthly visits are recommended.
Will peach fuzz grow back thicker and longer?
No. Vellus hair will grow back to the exact texture and length it was originally.
Is Dermaplaning painful?
Absolutely not. This exfoliation method is gentle enough to not cause any pain.
Is there any downtime?
After your treatment you may experience some redness to your skin, which subsides quickly. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun so SPF is a must.
Do I need to do anything prior to my treatment?
Consultations are recommended to discuss your skin type, acne flare-ups, and skincare that may need to be halted prior to your treatment. Also, avoid sun exposure as sunburned skin will not be treated.
