Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the technician simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) are gently removed during treatment.
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after Dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. This has been proven within many clinic as records have been recorded on a regular basis.
Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. It also may be used by technicians to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial. Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and our clients have found it very relaxing.
