Dermaplaning, one of the most popular skin care treatments, is an advanced exfoliation method. Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple, and vibrant using a professional manual blade. Completely pain free and 5 times as efficient as microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is a method of skin rejuvenation that removes 1-2 weeks worth of dead skin cells, revealing a fresh, radiant complexion. It is also followed by a gentle face mask.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A DERMAPLANING
First, clean from face makeup, your face will be prepped with a deep cleansing, antibacterial pad. The esthetician will the de-grease the face with an alcohol solution. The more dry the face during the better the dermatome can glide. After the face has been sufficiently bladed, a moisturizing ceramide face mask will be applied for 15 minutes. The face mask will be removed, the excess rubbed in, and then an SPF 50 broad spectrum will be smoothed onto the fresh skin.
There is no downtime with dermaplaning, however, it is very important to wear a 30 or above Broad Spectrum sunscreen everyday (under makeup - even if makeup has an SPF itself). Fresh skin is more susceptible to the sun's rays on both bright or cloudy days. This service has a standard interval time of 4-6 weeks between appointments. Facial hair has a genetically determined rate and appearance of growth. Dermaplaning will not affect how hair grows back. Hair will respond to hormone therapy, hormonal life changes, etc. The endocrine system is the major determinant on how hair grows, not dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is excellent to add right before a light chemical peel as well as a great add on 2 weeks after a Microneedling service!
