Dermaplaning is a precise, elegant and highly effective superficial exfoliation. “Planing” as it is commonly referred to, relies on the simplest of tools but the most artful of skill to deeply scrape and exfoliate away the top layers of inert skin. This low tech treatment yields the highest dividends in skin toning, clarifying and re-texturizing and is ideally suited for all ages and skin types. Dermaplaning also removes hair from the treated areas leaving behind a smooth, beautiful face free from embarrassing and unwanted hair. Dermaplaning does not remove the root of facial hair, but instead removes the hair that sits above the epidermis. Dermaplaning designed to work effectively with the vellous hairs found on your face and prevents hair from appearing thicker or darker as it grows back in.
Dermaplaning can be performed on small, precise areas of the skin or can be applied to larger regions, including the entire face. Dermaplaning can also be performed in addition to other skin treatments, such as chemical peels or cortisone injections. This treatment also encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells and can have a positive impact on the skin cell lifecycle. Dermaplaning is a highly effective way to resurface the skin and is a highly effective method for leveling out uneven surfaces on the face. Dermaplaning is gentle and does not break the capillaries on the face, which more agressive exfoliators may do. This prevents skin discoloration or scarring. Since dermaplaning does not involve the application of chemicals it is a great alternative for individuals who have sensitive skin and cannot undergo chemical peels or other chemically based treatments. Dermaplaning is a non-surgical procedure and requires no recovery time nor does it produce any visible side effects.
