Dermaplane is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool at a forty-five degree angle and stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplane is performed as a stand alone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectives .This is a wonderful form of exfoliation that can be used with or without chemicals. This treatment does not require downtime and will leave you with baby smooth skin
All skin types may benefit from dermaplaning. A dermaplane is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair). If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.
Benefits of Dermaplane treatment:
- Promotes smoother skin.
- Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil.
- Dermaplaning enhances the effectiveness of other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and DiamondTome microdermabrasion by providing deeper product penetration.
- Reduces recent acne scars.
- Reduces fine lines.
- Produces immediate results with no downtime.
When performed by a well trained professional, dermaplanning is very safe.
No. This is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplanning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplanning is designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.
Dermplanning is usually performed every 4 to 6 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two-three weeks worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal thirty day rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.
