What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a mechanical form of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and vellous hair creating a smooth and glow complexion. We recommend coming monthly for optimal results.
Who can receive Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommend for all skin types except for those with active breakouts and men with heavy facial hair. This is an excellent option for those who are pregnant and/or nursing and want to see the benefits of exfoliation without the use of chemicals.
Will my hair grow back thicker and/or darker?
No, dermaplaning cannot change your natural hair growth. Since dermaplaning removes vellous hair at the thickest point, creating a blunt edge, it may SEEM as though the hair is thicker and/or darker for a brief period of time but this is temporary and most people won't even notice.
How do I prepare for my dermaplaning treatment?
Avoid exfoliating 24 hours prior to your appointment as well topical agents such as AHAs, BHAs (salicylic acid), and Retinol (vitamin A).
How do I care for my skin post treatment?
After treatment your skin needs time to heal itself, avoid exfoliating and cleanse the skin gently with fingers only for at least 24 hours, as well as apply sunscreen daily.
