Dermaplaning

For a quick treatment with no downtime, dermaplaning might be just what you need for smooth, glowing skin! Dermaplaning is perfect before events, special occasions or for those who prefer a face free of “peach fuzz” for easier makeup application and better skincare efficacy.

 

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that uses a medical grade surgical blade in short strokes at an angle to remove the very top layer of skin. This treatment removes both dead skin cells and the fine vellus hairs that are also known as ‘peach fuzz’, leaving the surface of the face ultra smooth. By stimulating the development of new skin cells, this type of exfoliation helps new skin rise to the surface. It leaves you with a more youthful and dewy face, but without any harsh chemicals, excessive downtime, or pain. A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built-up of dead skin cells and debris from your skin. Since the blade is being held at a precise angle and our experienced therapists use light, feathering strokes, there is no worry about piercing or scratching the skin.

 

The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin. There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker- dermaplaning targets the vellus hair that grows back the same size and colour.

 

Dermaplaning provides an effective and safe exfoliation treatment that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skin care products while making the skin look and feel smoother. It is also beneficial for reducing the appearance of acne scars. The treatment also works to remove facial hair that can trap dirt and oils. Makeup looks smoother and more flawless and without the fine layer of hair on the face, light more easily refracts off of the skin creating an ethereal skin glow!

 

Because it gets rid of dead skin cells and spurs the development of new cells, this treatment has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. It acts as deep cleaning treatment, removing dirt, oils, and dead skin cells from the pores. Once your pores have been cleaned, they’ll appear smaller on the face.

 

The skin tone is evened out and hyperpigmentation, the darker spots that can appear on the skin, eases. Overall, the skin takes on a fresher and brighter appearance. Rough spots on the surface of the skin are smoothed over, and your complexion is brightened. All of those new skin cells also help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, warding off some of the premature signs of aging.

 

The first several days after treatment are the ideal time to focus on your highest-quality serums, moisturizers and other elements of your at-home skincare routine and you’ll notice your cosmetics will also go on much more easily once your face is clear of peach fuzz and dead skin cells. You’ll shave minutes off of your morning makeup routine, and your face will look better once it’s been made up. Have you ever noticed how fine facial hairs tend to stand up and out once you’ve applied foundation and powder? You won’t have to worry about the appearance of those little hairs after you’ve undergone this treatment.

 

If you’re undergoing acne treatment, or if you have acne scarring from previous outbreaks, dermaplaning can be especially helpful. Although this treatment isn’t recommended for anyone who has current, active breakouts, it can minimize the chance of future breakouts by cleaning your pores and getting rid of the dirt and oils that can sometimes become trapped in facial hair. This treatment can also ease some of the redness associated with past acne scars. And by clearing the face of hair and skin cells, it can improve the efficacy of acne medications.

 

Although the idea of having your face shaved with a scalpel may sound intimidating, the treatment is amazingly relaxing and enjoyable. This is a gentle treatment that involves no harsh chemicals and no tugging, pulling, or scratching on the skin. Dermaplaning is completely non-invasive, involves no downtime and is safe for all skin tones and types.
