Dermaplaning is an exfoliation process that uses a scalpel with minimally-invasive featherlike strokes. This superficial resurfacing promotes smoother skin, removing soft (vellus) facial hair that can trap dirt and oil, reducing acne scars and tiny bumps on the skin’s surface, and helping to promote deeper product penetration.
Dermaplaning is Safe
The use of a sharp blade in this process is safe as handled by our staff’s professionals with care, ensuring that there will be no scarring or infections as a result. Little to no irritation to the skin is to be expected, and the aftereffect of growing of ‘thicker, darker’ hair is a myth.
NOTE: It is not advised to seek dermaplaning with an active case of face acne, sores, or other skin conditions on the face. Smoking is also not advised for a period of time before the appointment.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
The ultimate goal is to rejuvenate the skin and make its appearance thereof more beautiful. After the process, the skin is much cleaner, and pores are reduced, allowing for the improved application of makeup and other agents that are beneficial to the health and beauty of the face. In other words, dermaplaning itself is a skin care procedure that will enhance your skin care routine.
