Dermaplaning is an easy, effective procedure involving the use of a surgical blade. During this fast, painless treatment, dead skin layers are removed from the upper epidermis, as well as vellus hair (peach fuzz). Benefits include exfoliation, lessening the appearance of acne scarring, sun damage or hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles. You will also benefit from deeper product penetration when using facial creams as well as a smoother finish when applying make-up such as foundation.
Dermaplaning may be done as a stand-alone treatment or to enhance another treatment like one of our Dermalogica skin treatments or micro needling, as removing the dead skin layers beforehand will allow products to penetrate deeper into the dermis and also allows better absorption of serums used with needling into the skin.
Results are instant with no down time. After your first treatment we generally recommend to wait until your skin has completed its regenerating cycle before having the treatment done again which is roughly 30 days.
