Dermaplaning is a popular facial treatment providing instant gratification without the use of chemicals. It is a simple and safe technique used for exfoliating
the skin while removing fine vellus hair, also called peach fuzz.
Using a small, modified surgical blade to gently but persistently scrape the epidermis surface with light, feathery strokes, the procedure leaves skin smooth and vibrant. Dermaplaning is often paired with a variety of additional treatments, such as light chemical peels and masks. Treatment pairing allows for deeper penetration of skincare products.
Preparing for Dermaplaning
- Discussion of medical history, skin type and skin coloring.
- If experiencing an active acne flare-up, appointment rescheduling may be required to avoid further irritating skin or tearing skin’s surface.
- Avoid direct sun exposure in the week prior to your appointment. Sun damage, such as sunburn, compromises skin and increases treatment painfulness.
