WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective method of physical exfoliation. It involves using an ultra-sharp surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the surface of the skin – removing the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. It sounds scary (!), but when performed by a trained and experienced esthetician, it is completely painless, safe, quick and the results are immediate. Your complexion is left healthier, brighter, smoother and clearer as soon as the treatment is over. And because your skincare products will penetrate better, you’ll see the results last and your skin improve over the next several weeks.
WHO IS DERMAPLANING IDEAL FOR?
Anyone with acne-scarring, hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone is an ideal client for dermaplaning. Mature and aging skin types with fine lines or wrinkles, would also benefit from this treatment. Being a physical exfoliating method, dermaplaning is especially safe for pregnant and lactating mothers who cannot get chemical peels.
However, dermplaning is not ideal for oily skin types, and those with active acne should wait until lesions or breakouts completely heal.
