What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that involves gently scraping the face with a medical-grade scalpel to remove the very top layer of skin. The shave removes both dead skin cells and the fine vellus hairs that are known as peach fuzz, leaving the surface of the face ultra smooth. By stimulating the development of new skin cells, this type of exfoliation — sometimes called a scalpel facial — helps new skin rise to the surface. It leaves patients with a more youthful and dewy face, but without any harsh chemicals, excessive downtime, or pain.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?
One of the most commonly cited benefits of this treatment is the rested, rejuvenated appearance it gives patients. The skin on the face takes on a smoother and more youthful look, and patients appear more relaxed and less stressed. But scalpel facials also offer a number of other benefits as well, and some of them are in line with what you’d expect from far harsher facial treatments.
More Effective At-Home Skincare Regimen
The first several days after treatment are the ideal time to focus on your highest-quality serums, moisturizers and other elements of your at-home skincare routine. Your hairless face and super-clean pores will be able to fully absorb those treatments, and you’ll get the maximum benefit from them. Facials and other aesthetic services offered by our center are also especially effective in the first days after your treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz and minimize fine lines and blemishes on the face, while also improving the overall look and health of the skin, is a good candidate for this treatment. The gentle and noninvasive nature of this service also makes it a good option for patients who have limitations that prevent them from taking advantage of other treatment options. Patients who are pregnant, who have very sensitive skin, or who are unable to handle the chemicals in other treatments may all benefit from scalpel facials.Book Now
