Is it right for me?
Dermaplaning is ideal for women of all skin types, tones and colors. Best for women over 30, who is focused on anti-aging and improving the health and appearance of their skin.
Can Dermaplaning be combined with other treatments?
Is it safe?
Your skin therapist or esthetician will carefully prepare your skin then exfoliate the top layer of the skin with a specialized surgical blade. The process removes dead skin cells, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). It is important to wear sunblock after your treatment.
Dermaplaning is frequently used in combination with other skin treatments for enhanced results. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and stimulates the surface of the skin it can be used prior to light peels.
We recommend combining DERMAPLANING + MICRONEEDLING for an optimal skincare treatment and is ideal to treat uneven skin tone and texture, large pores, fine lines, unwanted facial hair, and acne scars. Dermaplaning before Micro-needling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin layers, allowing for a most desirable outcome.
Dermaplaning is a safe procedure that can only be performed by a licensed and specially trained practitioner. Your treatment provider has received additional training and experience so you can enjoy optimal results . However, nicks and scratches do occur even with the most experienced technician and should heal without issue within a few days.
You shouldn't Dermaplane if you have:
cancer and are undergoing treatment
used Accutane or Isotretinion within the last 12 months
Grade 2, pustular or cystic acne
used Retin-A within 5 days prior
had a chemical peel or laser treatment within 14 days prior
active cold sores
sunburnt or windburned skin
