Dermaplaning was once an aesthetic trade secret in the modeling industry. The procedure is excellent on its own or combined with hydrating facials, chemical peels or rejuvenating laser treatments. Dermaplaning gently removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells on the face. We will manually exfoliate the treatment area using a scalpel. Vellus hair, also referred to as peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment.
The immediate result is fresh, bright skin revealed and a smoother look and feel to the skin. This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne. This treatment is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women. Patients often wonder if their hair will grow back thicker and darker after Dermaplaning but this is a simple myth. As ling long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will continue to grow back at the same rate and texture as it did prior to treatment.
This is a very safe procedure and only requires that you avoid taking any medications that could cause the blood to thin such as Accutane, Retinols, or any anti-inflammatory drug.
