A form of exfoliation that eliminates dead skin cells, pollution buildup and facial hair creating a smooth base for makeup. In addition, it also allows skincare products to sink in more effectively.
Dermaplaning is a highly effective procedure for removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and the layer of velous hair (‘peach fuzz’). The removed skin cells are no longer a protectant, but a barrier for product penetration and other procedures. The thin facial hair trap dirt and oil. That is why the treatment guarantees the smoothest skin possible and allows for better penetration of skin care products. The method of controlled ‘scraping’ is safely performed using a sterile disposable surgical blade.
The clients with dull, dry, dehydrated skin are excellent candidates. Dermaplanning is also a perfect treatment for those who are using Retin-A or AHA products.
After the treatment use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher (physical sunscreen is the best choice), discontinue use of AHA for 72 hours and the most high quality products possible with stem cells, Vitamin C, Peptides and Antioxidants.
We cannot dermaplane someone who is highly sensitive, has pustular or active rosacea, acne, thick dark (terminal) hair, pregnant and diabetic clients.
Please stop using exfoliants 48 hours prior to the treatment:
