What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation, or skin resurfacing, using a sterile surgical blade that gently sheds the top layer of dull, dead skin, as well as temporarily removes fine peach fuzz hairs. This activates the skin cells beneath to renew and freshen. The result is an immediately smoother, brighter, healthier, glowing complexion.
The procedure works particularly well for smoothing the skin of those with dry or coarse skin, for lessening acne scarring or uneven skin tone, and for removing the buildup of dead cells for those with mature or damaged skin. People with oily skin, active acne, or thick, dark facial hair should avoid this procedure, though we have other options we can discuss.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
Dermaplaning is $40.
How long will my dermaplaning results last?
You will love your results immediately after your treatment and will notice a decrease in fine facial hair (peach fuzz) and a glowing complexion for approximately one month. A lot of clients choose to repeat this treatment every month to keep a healthy cell turnover and see long-term results such as a decrease in fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, and scarring.
How long will my appointment take?
Your treatment will take approximately 30 minutes.
Will dermaplaning hurt?
Nope, not at all. Most clients report it feels very relaxing.
Is there any prep for this treatment?
Dermaplaning cannot be done on sunburned skin, or open wounds, rashes, or acne. Please discontinue the use of any retinols 7 days before your treatment. Other than that, all are welcome (even pregnant and nursing mamas)!
Is there any downtime or recovery?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning. We apply a medical-grade sunscreen at the end of your treatment and recommend you avoid any retinols for 3-4 days after your treatment.
Are there any products I should be using at home?
We recommend using medical-grade skincare products all the time, and our favorites are SkinMedica and Skin Better Science. During your appointment, we can make recommendations based on your skin type and skincare concerns.
