Dermaplaning is a terrific way to unveil brighter, smoother skin with minimal downtime. For patients with dry, rough skin, mild acne scarring, or just skin that’s showing the signs of aging, this procedure can bring terrific results.
During the procedure, a licensed aesthetician (do not try this at home!) will use a sterile scalpel to gently exfoliate the face, avoiding the eye and nose area. The process removes the dead cells at the skin’s surface, as well as the light, downy hairs on the face known as vellus hairs, or what we often affectionately refer to as” peach fuzz”. Vellus hairs can trap oil and dirt on the face, contributing to skin that looks dull or tired. And the great news about vellus hairs? Despite what you might have heard from your grandma, facial hair won’t grow back darker or thicker!
By physically removing dead skin cells, dermaplaning doesn’t just improve skins’ appearance – it also increases the absorption and effectiveness of your favorite topical skincare products. So your retinols, serums, peptides and other powerhouse facial products work harder for you with better results! And dermaplaning amps up your body’s production of new skin cells, contributing to the overall brightening of skin.
Dermaplaning is a terrific option for patients that experience sensitivity to chemical peels, because only a sterile scalpel will touch the skin. It’s also a wise choice for women who don’t want to use any strong topical treatments while they’re pregnant or nursing.
