Dermaplane for Luminous, Baby Smooth Skin

If you are ready to reveal beautiful, healthy skin and increase the benefits of your skin care regimen, consider a dermaplane facial. Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle for the removal of keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine vellous hair. Put simply, dead skin and peach fuzz! The whole process may sound a little frightening at first, but this procedure is safe, chemical-free, and even comfortable when performed by well-trained and experienced estheticians.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?

  • Removes dead skin cells that are a barrier to deep product penetration

  • Removes soft facial hair that often creates a “halo glow” on the face

  • Safe, chemical-free way to deeply exfoliate the skin

  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars

  • Diminishes the look of fine lines and promotes smoother skin

  • Best of all, the results are INSTANT with NO DOWNTIME!

WHO SHOULD GET A DERMAPLANE?

Almost everyone is a candidate for dermaplaning. People of any skin tone can enjoy a dermaplane with confidence. Only the most severely sensitive or inflamed acne skin types should not sign up for this procedure.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

To simply get a dermaplane, plan on about 45-50 minutes. You may also consider adding it into any facial service or try our Signature Dermaplane Renewing Facial, which combines the benefits of a thorough dermaplane with high quality active ingredients, hydration, and pampering massage. This will take about 75 minutes.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SERVICE?

Your dermaplane experience will start with a brief consultation and examination of your skin. We’ll discuss your skin care goals. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and then prepped with a mild degreasing solution. Dermaplane starts at the forehead, moves to the cheeks, around the mouth, the jawline, and down the neck. You can expect to leave with no fuzz from your hairline to almost your collar bone. Don’t worry! We won’t rearrange your hairline or mess up any of those cute whispies in front of your ears! To finish off the service, we’ll polish your skin with a gentle natural enzyme gel gommage that leaves skin absolutely radiant. Add hydrating hyaluronic acid and a sunscreen, and you’ll be headed out the door.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY SERVICE?

After the dermaplane, your skin will be smooth. It may be a little more sensitive than normal as we remove 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin and debris. Sensitivity typically only lasts for a day or two. Your homecare products will penetrate readily, so you will need smaller amounts. You need to make sure to be vigilant with sunscreens. Other than that, you may put make up on right away. This treatment is VERY popular before senior pictures, for brides, and for moms of brides! You will never look better in pictures than you will with a fresh dermaplane!

WILL THIS MAKE THE HAIR ON MY FACE COME BACK THICKER AND DARKER?

No. This is physiologically impossible. We are only cutting the hair off above the surface and not disturbing the root in any way. The hair will grow back gradually to the same texture and color that it was before the procedure. You can get a dermaplane about every 4 weeks to keep your look totally fresh and keep regrowth to a minimum.

I have gotten hooked on this service since I got my first dermaplane. It is one of my favorite facial treatments to perform because the results are so immediate and so obvious to the client. It is absolutely FABULOUS when combined with our new Bio-Brasion Trinity! I hope you will consider giving it a try!

Always at your service,
