All About Dermaplaning:

The What, Where, Why…and Wow

If you’re not yet familiar with the term Dermaplaning, it may sound like some kind of gardening for the skin! Not quite, but it’s a procedure that helps “cultivate” your complexion’s deeper beauty for sure.

Simply put, Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation designed to give your face a more fine texture and appealing glow. The procedure itself is time-tested and exceptionally safe and it offers instant results.

Literally, Dermaplaning involves a simple, well-targeted shaving of the skin’s top surface. A special scalpel is used, and your practitioner employs a very light, feathery touch to scrap off the uppermost layer of skin. Sound daunting? Not at all: In fact, the entire session is is virtually painless and accomplished in under an hour!

As with any type of scraping or peel, the goal of Dermaplaning is to remove dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, more luminous complexion. But there’s another plus. The procedure also eliminates called vellus hair known more colloquially as “peach fuzz” from around the facial area. And no, this will not cause the hair to grow back in thicker, contrary to popular belief.  In fact, many clients comment that Dermaplaning helps their makeup foundation go on much more smoothly. Some say they didn’t even realize these fine airs impacted their beauty regimen before they tried Dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning confers other big benefits. Once the top epidermal layer is gently scraped away, moisturizers, night creams and beauty balms can penetrate more deeply. That means they work more effectively at improving your skin. As well, Dermaplaning does not involve any chemicals. So it’s generally considered safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers who want the “perk” of a deep exfoliation without the concern that something adverse be absorbed into their bloodstream. Truly a win-win!
