WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a facial treatment that provides instant gratification without the use of chemicals. It is a simple and safe manual technique for exfoliating the skin while removing fine vellus hair, also called peach fuzz. The procedure involves using a small, modified surgical blade to VERY gently scrape the surface of the epidermis with light, feathery strokes, leaving the skin smooth and vibrant.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?
Diminishes the appearance of dry, fine lines
Encourages faster cell turnover and dewy skin
Smooths skin texture
Results in a healthy more radiant appearance of the skin
Allows peels to penetrate more deeply into the skin
Prepares the skin for further rejuvenating procedures such as laser treatments
Virtually painless with no down time
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is suitable for all ages. While most skin types can benefit from the treatment, our estheticians do not recommended dermaplaning for acneic skin.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Dermaplaning is only performed on the face.
WILL MY PEACH FUZZ GROW BACK THICKER?
No, the light vellus hair that you may have on your face will grow back the same size, shape and color. If you have a few courser, darker hairs, they will come back the same way.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT FOR DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is not offered à la carte, and we do not offer add-ons at Sapien Skin + Beauty. We treat each client for their specific needs in the given time frame of the appointment to provide the most effective results. Dermaplaning may be included in the following services, but is not guaranteed, again, depending on what is most appropriate, effective, and unique to you and your appointment.
