Dermaplane Facial | $150 (80 min)
Slough off dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” for picture perfect skin. Dermaplaning and soothing finishing gel mask will leave your skin feeling like a movie star. This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. By removing that dead layer of skin and vellus hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.
Pros & Cons of Dermaplane Facial
- It painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum to stimulate cellular turnover with little to no downtime.
- It is a great option for clients with sensitive skin and pregnant women who are looking for a deep exfoliation.
- It can be performed prior to treatments like facials, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels for better product penetration.
- It can be performed frequently.
- It helps makeup go on smoother and more evenly.
- It can help significantly lighten post inflammatory scars from past acne.
- It does not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.
- It is typically more expensive than some other hair-removal treatments.
- The results might not be as long-lasting as other hair-removal methods, such as waxing, as the hair is not removed from the root.
- Results will differ depending on a client’s individual hair-growth cycle.
- Not everyone is a candidate. Clients with active and cystic acne should avoid this type of hair removal, as it can cause further irritation. Also, it is contraindicated for clients with hirsutism, a condition of excessive male-pattern hair growth in women.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to Microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A medical grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.
Not only does dermaplaning even out the texture of your skin, it helps make the colour appear smoother too. The process is beneficial for hyperpigmentation because it helps fend off the things in your body that inhibit production of melanin, which is what gives your skin its colour.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows skin care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores. Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have couperose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Dermaplaning can be preformed on the face and neck.
Benefits Of Dermaplaning
The benefits of dermaplaning include: increased absorption of topical products, immediately diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, primes the skin for a chemical peel and creates a healthier, more radiant appearance.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
We recommend a series of six to eight sessions, up to four to six weeks apart.
Does It Hurt?
Dermaplaning is painless and is very similar to shaving any other part of your body.
Does The Hair Grow Back Thicker After Dermaplaning?
No, dermaplaning will not affect the thickness of your hair. Only a change in your hormones can alter your hair growth.
