What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and gentle method of skin exfoliation. It removes the outermost layer of skin, ridding it of peach fuzz and evening skin texture. This treatment can help smooth the skin and reveal healthy, vibrant skin by removing the layer of dead skin on top. Most often, we use dermaplaning to prepare the skin for new routines or treatments. Dermaplaning helps reveal skin that is better prepared to receive and react to treatments such as chemical peels. One of our most popular combinations is a dermaplaning session followed by a VI peel, which yields amazing rejuvenation results.
How is Dermaplaning Administered?
Dermaplaning uses a fine scalpel to gently shave off the outermost layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is a comfortable process that only takes a few minutes to perform.
What Can I Expect After My Dermaplaning Treatment?
After a dermaplaning treatment, patients can expect mild redness that may last up to two days. After the redness fades, you will notice skin that looks healthier and feels softer. Patients can achieve even more significant skin rejuvenation results by combining dermaplaning with treatments like chemical peels.
