Dermaplane is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool at a forty-five degree angle and stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplane is performed as a standalone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectives such as chemical peels or micro-needling. This is a wonderful form of exfoliation that does not require downtime and will effectively help give you the smooth skin.
What are the benefits of having a Dermaplane?
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. This is physiologically impossible. The hair on your face is called Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplaning. This treatment is designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face.
What areas can be treated?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face only.
How often is the procedure performed?
Dermplaning is can be performed every three to four weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal thirty-day rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
All skin types may benefit from dermaplaning. A dermaplane is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair). If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.
