What is a Dermaplaning ?
Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment in which we use a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and (along with the peach fuzz on your face). You might be wondering Why is this necessary? It’s because the buildup of dead skin and microscopic hairs can make your complexion appear dull, flaky, and can even cause breakouts due to clogged pores and hair follicles. Which is why this form of mechanical exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.

7 Things to know about your Dermaplaning Treatment
1. Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types.
If you have sun damage, fine lines, very dry skin or dull skin this is a great treatment for you. However, since the procedure requires use of a sharp scalpel, those with enflamed acne should pass on it until their complexion clears up.
2. Dermaplaning will not make your hair grow back thicker or darker.
Once your hair begins to grow back it might feel different because the hair was cut straight across, but it’s actually the same texture as before and grows at the same speed. It also just might seem thicker because the hair was bluntly cut by the razor versus having a natural point to it.
3. There is no downtime.
Some light redness can be expected but not always. It’s perfectly fine and common to make an appointment during lunch and go right back to work after treatment.
4. You’ll need to be very diligent with SPF afterward. You should always wear sun protection every day — especially when you’re outside for a prolonged period of time — but post-exfoliation your skin is especially susceptible to the sun. So, if you don’t take sun protection seriously, you might want to skip this sloughing treatment.
5. It’ll change your life as far as makeup application goes.
Ever notice how peach fuzz tends to stand out even more underneath foundation and face powders? Well, since dermaplaning removes all the little hairs on your face, your makeup will go on super smoothly. Your skincare products will also be more effective, since the product isn’t being blocked by dead skin cells and can penetrate the skin faster.
7. The results can last up to four weeks.
The procedure removes three weeks of dead skin cells, so your glow will last all month long. But since your skin is always growing, you may want to schedule an appointment every month or so to maintain your results.
