Also know as Dermal Leveling, Dermaplaning is a non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. It removes the outer most layers of dead skin using a surgical blade leaving the skin immediately smooth.
It involves using a tool with a short upward stroke while being held at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the skin. With the angle at which the tool is held and the use of light feathering strokes by the technician, there is no worry about piercing the skin.
The technique may look similar to shaving your face, but it is much more effective due to the type of blade being used and offers many benefits. There is also no need to worry about the hair getting any darker; dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that grows back the same size and color. It is physiologically impossible to grow back thick and darker.
After the treatment, the technician may offer a hydrating moisturizer to finalize the process.
The treatment removes the dead skin that has built up over two to three weeks.
We recommend dermaplaning to anyone who is to undergo chemical peel treatment to allow better penetration and, therefore, better results.
