Dermaplaning Treatments

Dermaplaning is a simple, and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis, and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years, but many estheticians don’t even know it exists, and certainly, many don’t use it.When clients hear the word dermaplaning, they quickly associate the term with the procedure known as derma-brasion, and won’t even consider it as a possible treatment. Derma-brasion is not Dermaplaning! DERMAPLANING on the other hand, is a simple shaving of the epidermis. Because dermaplaning is a procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel, and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to clients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for clients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt , and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client healthier looking skin. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many clients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier, and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate, and texture as before the treatment.

Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.It also may be used by estheticians to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels, microneedling or before a cleansing facial.

Dermaplaning is often used on clients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpig­mentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines, and wrinkles. However, this treatment is instant gratification for EVERYONE! The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
