dermaplane

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years, but many estheticians don’t even know it exists, and certainly, many don’t use it. Our Certified Skin Specialists are experts at “The No Fuzz Given” procedure. All our implements are disposable for guest safety.

Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are concerned hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning

This is not the case!  As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. It is highly recommended by estheticians to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before any facial. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. $50 ala carte or look for the add-on Dermaplane when booking with another facial for $45.
