Dermaplaning works with all skin types. It does not involve chemicals and is safe for pregnant or nursing women. If you have active acne or very sensitive skin, our esthetician will talk to you about timing your treatment for the best result.
Dermaplaning is a highly efficient, safe, physical exfoliation procedure used to clear away dry, dead, superfluous skin layers, and vellus hair using a surgical blade. Dermaplaning treatments take about 45 minutes.
Unlike some exfoliation methods, dermaplaning doesn’t require any downtime afterward. You’re likely to notice that:
As with any skin care treatment your skin will be more sensitive to the sun afterwards. It is important to use a SPF broad spectrum sunscreen to avoid damage from sunburn and areas of hyperpigmentation. Our esthetician has several pharmaceutical grade sunscreen options available.
A quality, individualized skin care regimen that is developed with the esthetician will enhance your result. Most people continue with regular dermaplaning treatments about every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain the effects.
As with any cosmetic medical procedure, results vary from patient to patient.
