WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a physical form of exfoliation that consists of using a 10-gauge scalpel to gently remove all layers of dull, devitalized, dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It gently removes facial hair as well, leaving the skin’s surface very smooth allowing for greater penetration of skincare products. It also creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. It is a favourite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses as it eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras.

Dermaplaning is often used to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as advanced facial treatments, laser treatments and chemical peels.

WHO IS DERMAPLANING FOR?

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types, except those with acneic skin. If you have active acne or deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

It is very well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz.

HOW IS DERMAPLANING DONE?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

Your treatment provider will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin, your skin will then be pulled taut in the area of treatment with one hand, and a sterile 10 gauge blade will be used at a 45 degree angle in the other hand.  Short, swift, precise strokes will be performed to gently remove the dead skin cells and peach fuzz.  Your treatment will end with skin specific serums and creams, as well as a tissue or gel mask to calm, sooth, tighten and tone!

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DERMAPLANING?

There are NO side effects and ZERO downtime. However, after treatment the skin is fresh and highly receptive, meaning very sensitive to sun exposure.  It is highly recommended to immediately protect your skin with sunblock – a minimum of SPF30 sunscreen, which we are sure to apply after every dermaplaning treatment, so you are outside-ready. The outer layers of the epidermis that can provide some protection from UV have been removed, so its important to protect that skin from immediate exposure to harmful rays that can burn the skin or cause hyper-pigmentation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?

Instant Rejuvenation!  Your skin will immediately look fresh and radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, leaving your skin incredibly soft!

RECOMMENDED COURSE OF TREATMENT FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

Dermaplaning removes approximately 28 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.  Our clients report that the effects are notable for up to four weeks.  Seeing that our skin is always regenerating, optimal results can be achieved by repeating this treatment once a month, and always recommended before a night out with the girls, date night, or weekend in the spotlight!

If you have resilient skin, try coupling dermaplaning with another recommended advanced facial treatment in the same session for unbeatable results.

A last note – to dispel myths- Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale.  Superficial vellus hair (that’s the name for clear or white soft fine facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment, so shave away!
