Perfect in conjunction with other skincare treatments.
Dermaplaning, also called epidermal leveling, is a procedure that involves scraping the skin at a 45 degree angle using a scalpel like device called a dermablade to remove the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair. It is a physical exfoliation that, unlike scrubs or microdermabrasion, provides the added benefit of removing “peach fuzz” from the face. The procedure is performed by our licensed aesthetician who has been specially trained.
There are many benefits to dermaplaning.
Once we get into our 30s, the natural cell turnover process begins to slow down causing some individuals to have up to 90 days of dead skin cells layered upon the surface. This build up accentuates the appearance of wrinkles, dulls the skin tone and results in makeup looking “cakey”.
During this time, we also produce more vellus hair or peach fuzz. Clinical research suggests that men who shave everyday look younger longer. Daily shaving removes the hair and dead skin cells which make a man appear more youthful in the beard area.
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin leaving it smooth, supple, and vibrant. It is highly effective for smoothing rough texture and minimizing the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. Dermaplaning does not use chemicals or abrasive devices.
This removal of the skin barrier allows for even and increased penetration of active ingredients in both the treatment and patient’s home care products. Dermaplaning is an excellent preparation to enhance the effectiveness of chemical peels and laser procedures. It is also used post-peel to remove remaining shedding skin once the peel has concluded.
Patients love the way their skin feels and looks immediately following treatment. It is truly an instant gratification experience. Makeup glides on beautifully following treatment, so it is often requested by clients prior to important events.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective anti-aging procedure that provides instant results that can last up to four weeks.
