ARE YOU BOTHERED BY FACIAL PEACH FUZZ ON THE CHIN, CHEECKS OR UPPER LIP?
What Is A Dermaplaning? Your skin is exposed to harsh elements on a daily basis, from environmental toxins and irritants to sun damage, which in turn can make skin appear dull and aged.Dermaplaning is a highly effective procedure for removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and the layer of velous hair (‘peach fuzz’). The removed skin cells are no longer a protectant, but a barrier for product penetration and other procedures. The thin facial hair trap dirt and oil. That is why the treatment guarantees the smoothest skin possible and allows for better penetration of skin care products. The method of controlled ‘scraping’ is safely performed using a sterile disposable surgical blade. Benefits Of Dermaplaning
Refines the appearance of fine lines and pores
Increases the skin’s ability to absorb products
Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
Improves elasticity and texture
Who is the Perfect Candidate for Dermaplaning? The clients with dull, dry, dehydrated skin are excellent candidates.
Dermaplanning is also a perfect treatment to be performed with advanced treatments (HydrO facials, Enzymes, LED light Therapy, O2 Therapy or Chemical peels). When combined with other treatments, Dermaplaning can enhance their effectiveness.
Contraindication for Dermaplaning We cannot dermaplane someone who is highly sensitive, has pustular or active rosacea, acne, thick dark (terminal) hair, pregnant and diabetic clients. Please stop using exfoliants 48 hours prior to the treatment:
Retinols and tretinoin
What should I know before the treatment? If you are experiencing an acne flair up before the treatment, you may need to wait until it subsides. We also recommend avoiding sun exposure for two weeks before the appointment.
What should I know after the treatment? After the treatment, you can go about your day as usual! There is zero downtime after a Dermaplaning treatment. You may experience mild redness after the treatment, but this will quickly improve. In addition, it is best to avoid exfoliation, retinoids 2-3 days after treatment.The most high quality products possible with stem cells, Vitamin C, Peptides and Antioxidants.As always, it is important to wear broad-spectrum SPF. After Dermaplaning, we advise that you do not use exfoliators or scrubs for one week.
Can Dermaplaning cause acne? Quite the opposite! Dermaplaning does not cause acne. This exfoliating treatment can actually help improve it! Dead skin cells can lead to clogged pores and hair follicles which can result in acne, pimples and whiteheads. Removing the top layer of your skin will also allow for acne medication (if applicable) to penetrate deeper and increase its effectiveness. However, Dermaplaning cannot be performed on skin with active acne.
Does Dermaplaning hurt? Dermaplaning is a completely painless treatment! Although it involves the use of a scalpel, an incision is never made; the scalpel delicately glides just above the outermost layer of skin, removing any hair and dead skin cells in its path.
Is Dermaplaning safe? This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an experienced Medical Aesthetician. It is non-invasive comparable to a man shaving his face. Dermaplaning is also safe for pregnant and nursing women.
Will the vellus hair grow back thicker? No. It is physiologically impossible for vellus hair, also known as peach-fuzz, to grow back thicker or darker. Vellus hair, when cut or removed, will grow back the same, as the structure of the hair is not damaged.
How long do results from Dermaplaning last? The results of Dermaplaning are immediate! You’ll notice your skin is brighter, smoother and rejuvenated. Your individual results will vary depending on your rate of skin cell turnover but typically results last between three to four weeks.
How often should you Dermaplane? We recommend Dermaplaning monthly; exfoliation is important for maintaining a healthy skincare regimen. Dermaplaning removes twenty-one days’ worth of dead skin cells. It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next Dermaplaning treatment.
