What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive way to help rejuvenate your face. It is a manual exfoliation which is used as to alternative methods and procedures that might use chemical exfoliation.
How is dermaplaning done?
A small, sterile surgical blade is held taut against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.
How does it work?
This type of manual exfoliation removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells as well as reduces the visibility of acne scarring, slight wrinkling, and removal of fine, villous hairs on the face.
Is dermaplaning right for me?
Dermaplaning is an acceptable form of treatment for most individuals; however, people with severe, active acne should not have a dermaplaning treatment.
What can I expect for downtime and recovery?
There is little to no downtime following treatment. Your skin will be more sensitive, especially to sunlight, and so you should protect your face with sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher.
