Dermaplane FAQs 

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 aestheticians 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?
