Dermaplaning, is a non-invasive form of manual exfoliation of the skin that resurfaces sun-damaged, dull, dehydrated skin. Using a surgical blade, to gently exfoliates the outermost layers of the epidermis to remove dead skin cells, impurities and debris. This encourages the skin to regenerate new skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant.

Will Dermaplaning Hurt?
There is no pain associated with dermaplaning, most people find it relaxing. It is a non-invasive treatment and only the dead skin cells on the surface will be removed. Since products will penetrate more easily, we recommend using caution when applying aggressive skin care serums at home for a few days to avoid any irritation. A post treatment form will be given to you so you know exactly how to best treat your skin after the treatment .
Will I Have To Take Time Off Work For Healing?
There is no downtime after dermplaning, and you can return to work the same day. We highly recommend a dermaplaning facial before a big event such as a wedding or a reunion due to the smoothing and rejuvenating appearance it produces.
Won’t The Hairs On The Face Grow Back 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 and Terminal hair. Vellous hair is the fine, translucent hair that you can find on your cheeks, jaw and neck – often referred to as “peach fuzz”. Terminal hair is thicker, colored hair that grows under the arms, legs, eye brows, and mustache and beard for men. Terminal hair we remove with laser hair removal. When Vellous hair is cut the structure of the hair does not become damaged, therefore it is impossible to alter.
