Dermaplaning: What is it and how is it performed
We are fully licensed and certified to perform all forms of dermaplaning.
We all have fine hairs on our face that can be very noticable. They might clog our pores, or perhaps we are just in need of some light exfoliation. Dermaplaning treats all of these needs and leaves you feeling relaxed and beautiful.
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years. Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
How is dermaplaning performed?
Dermaplaning is safely performed by using a sterile #10 surgical blade. The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving. However, the practitioner is doing the stroking while holding the area of skin taut.
When performed by a professionally trained and licensed practitioner the treatment is extremely safe. There is no more risk to the skin than when a man shaves his face. The treatment should be quick and painless.
