Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that removes bacteria and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. An aesthetician uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taught and gently swipes the blade over the skin in an upward motion. This painless treatment leaves the skin looking smoother and brighter.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning will give you a safe and effective exfoliation. This will make it much easier for products to penetrate deeper into the skin and it will boost the effects of the products. Dermaplaning will also make your skin look and feel smoother. It will reduce the appearance of acne scars and remove any facial hair that could hold on to dirt and oils.
Is there any down time after Dermaplaning?
There is no downtime after this treatment. Normally, it takes 45 minutes to complete the treatment and treatments should be about two to four weeks apart for best results.
Are there any side effects?
Your skin could be red and a little swollen after the treatment. Normally, patients are pleased with the way their skin looks right after they receive this treatment.
Will the hair grow back?
Because the blade is only removing the hair from the surface of the skin, the hair follicles are not disrupted. So, the hair will grow back, but it will be the same as before. You do not have to worry about it growing back coarser.
