Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is one of the most effective ways to exfoliate your skin that is also quick, noninvasive and helps to reveal radiant, healthier skin. 

How does it work?

Your dead skin cells will be removed by hand to reveal smooth, soft skin. The oils and dirt are removed from your skin which will cause facial products and other treatments to work more effectively.

Will the hair on my face grow back darker and thicker?

No. The hair on the face is called Vellous hairs and it is physiologically impossible to grow back thicker. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies; Vellous (tiny translucent blonde hair) and Terminal (thicker hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, eyebrows  mustache and beard for men and legs). Vellous hair when cut or removed will grow back the same.  The structure of the hair does not become damaged, therefore it is impossible to alter. Terminal hair is physiologically coarse.  When Terminal hair is cut, it grows back the same way, coarse. Dermaplaning is a safe treatment when performed by a professional. All skin types and colors can benefit from derma planing or blading. Our medical esthetician is highly trained and experienced in performing Dermaplaning.

When can I go back to work?

Right away, there is no recovery time and all normal activities can be resumed immediately.

What results can I expect?

While results may vary from patient to patient, your skin will feel softer and smoother. Any facial hair will be removed.

Before the treatment, will I need to prepare?

No, just simply come in at your scheduled time.
