Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. Dermaplaning (blading) is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. It is an intensive facial skin treatment used to treat deep or raised scars, wrinkles, crow’s feet, splotchy pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, pre-cancerous lesions and tattoos on the skin.

How is Dermaplaning performed?

It is safely performed by using a #10 blade (a sterile surgical blade). The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving. However, the practitioner is doing the stroking while holding the area of skin taut.

Is the treatment safe?

When performed by a professionally trained practitioner, is extremely safe. There is no more risk to the skin than when a man shaves his face. As long as the practitioner has adequate training, the treatment should be very easy and quick.

Most skin types can benefit from dermaplaning or blading, however, it is not recommend for those with acne or an over production of the sebaceous gland. The oils from the sebaceous gland need to travel up and connect with the vellous hair. (Vellous hair does not have oil/sebaceous glands) If the hair is removed, then the oils tend to stay below where they are prone to mix with bacterial colonies, ultimately stimulating more acne.

  • WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

    Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

    First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

     

  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

    About 45 minutes

  • ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?

    There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

  • WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?

    You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

  • RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

    Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
