Is it good for all skin types?
We recommend Dermaplaning for almost all skin types and is even good for pregnant or nursing mothers who want the results of a professional exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into their blood stream. Dermaplaning is not a good treatment for those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
Contrary to some peoples’ belief, Dermaplaning will not cause fine, vellus hair to grow back thicker or darker. In fact, dermaplaning vellus hair, or “peach fuzz,” is simply trimmed from the skin’s surface leaving hair follicles intact. Over time, and with ongoing dermaplaning treatments, vellus hair will appear even finer. This treatment is ideal because you can return to all regular activities and enjoy instant noticeably smoother skin.
What happen’s during the treatment work?
Your treatment will begin with a thorough cleansing and drying of your skin. A sterile 10-gauge blade held at a 45-degree angle is used to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. It’s a simple procedure, you’ll barely feel it. And if you have resilient skin, ask about combining dermaplaning with microdermabrasion in the same session for even better results.
How long should you wait between treatments?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
What is the post treatment care?
There are no side effects and zero social downtime after dermaplaning. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to the sun and may look very pink. Make sure to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce your risk of hyperpigmentation.
