What is Dermaplaning?

A low-risk procedure which uses a sterile surgical blade to physically exfoliate the stratum corneum (2-3 weeks of dead skin cells) and vellus hair (peach fuzz). Removing this skin layer and fine hair will allow your skin care products to penetrate deeper, brighten dull skin and your makeup will be applied much smoother and evenly. It’s also been effective at reducing acne scarring, stimulates cellular turnover improves elasticity, stimulate circulation and improves texture. It is gentler than microdermabrasion, and causes minimal redness and trauma. Although this is not advised for those with active acne/breakouts.

The myth of the hair coming back darker and thicker is false. The hair that grows back will not be darker or thicker, however any hormone imbalance present within your anatomical system can alter the normal hair growth pattern. The only changes to the hair that will occur following this procedure is a blunt edge being formed as the hair begins to grow. Once the hair reaches its full length, the bluntness will be gone and the hair is what it once was.

This is a perfect procedure for those looking for a deep exfoliation without the use of chemicals or for those that are pregnant or nursing.

Dermaplaning is recommended every three to six weeks or anytime you are desiring glowing, radiant skin. This procedure also pairs perfectly with our microneedling procedure to enhance results!
