Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup. This treatment will reveal a smoother, brighter complexion diminishing, large pores, fine lines and pigmentation.
Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands. Our certified estheticians are experts. It is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs.
There is no downtime and it does not increase facial hair growth, in fact, it noticeably slows down hair growth over time. Dermaplaning leaves your skin surface very smooth, allowing for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
Our Jane Iredale mineral foundation can be applied immediately if you are off to another appointment. Just be sure to mention this to your esthetician so we can allow extra time.
