Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that removes peach fuzz and dead skin with the tiny scrape of a painless scalpel. By removing that dead layer and hair from the face, the treatment results in smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. It also allows for better product penetration and improved makeup application. Dermaplaning can be combined with other treatments or used as a stand-alone treatment.
What are the benefits? Deep exfoliation, smooth skin, better product penetration, and improved makeup application.
Does the hair grow back thicker? No, dermaplaning does not make the hair grow back thicker.
Does it hurt? Dermaplaning is a pleasant and pain-free treatment.
Is there any downtime? There is no downtime for this treatment. However, some patients may experience redness that will dissipate shortly after the treatment.
What Treatments Can Be Paired With Dermaplaning? Your dermaplaning treatment can be combined with various facial treatments such as hydrafacial, chemical peels, and microneedling.
