Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for your skin. Your provider uses a special instrument to shave away the uppermost layers of your skin.
Dermaplaning helps the skin look and feel smoother and brighter by removing dead skin cells and vellus hair. The treatment can be performed on any skin type, including dry skin and sensitive skin. One of the major benefits of Dermaplaning is the increase in effectiveness of your skin care products as they are able to penetrate deeper into the skin. It is especially good for people who have a lot of red in their skin as it does not break delicate capillaries. Individuals with sensitive skin can also benefit from the procedure because it allows a greater effectiveness of soothing agents.
Dermaplane treatments last about 30 minutes. Your provider will cleanse the face, and then use a sterile blade, a surgical scalpel, to gently exfoliate your skin. No anesthesia is needed as this is a pain-free treatment. The sloughed off skin cells and “peach fuzz” will be gently wiped away at the end of the procedure – revealing a fresh, vibrant skin surface.
