This is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure aims to reduce fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks. It is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle before going back and having the treatment done.

The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area. It is important to leave enough time in between treatments to let the hair’s growth cycle be completed.

There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker. Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz), the hair will grow back the same size and colour. It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry. It is safe for most people, with little to no risk of side effects.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that promotes radiant, glowing skin by removing unwanted dead skin cells and vellus facial hair.

Dermaplaning results are immediate and provide a terrific alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels.

How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a maximum exfoliation method where a sterile blade is stroked along the skin at a 45 degree angle, removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and revealing a smoother, brighter complexion.

Is dermaplaning service painful?

Sound a little scary? It really isn’t, so long as you’re in the hands of a trained professional. Dermaplaning treatments are safe and painless, with most stating the service feels like gentle scratching.

How long does dermaplaning take?

30 minutes usually. 45 minutes if you are combining with a chemical peel or other facial upgrade.

Why is dermaplaning good for skin?

Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen and elastin fibers, so it is superb as an anti aging treatment. The layer of dead skin cells and facial hair that trap dirt and bacteria are removed, allowing for better product absorption and effectiveness.

Dermaplaning smooths, tones, tightens, and brightens skin, creating a flawless canvas for makeup application.

Can I go back to work after dermaplaning?

Yes! There is no downtime with dermaplaning and you may resume normal activities as soon as you leave the spa. At most, you may experience some temporary redness that subsides quickly.

How often should I get dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning should be received once every 4 weeks (monthly) to achieve optimum anti aging benefits. For removal of facial hair, primarily, every 4-6 weeks is recommended.
