SAFE Dermaplane Exfoliation is performed by one of our Licensed Aestheticians, using a special sterile blade to gently scrape away the top layer of dead epidermal cells. Along with exfoliating, dermaplaning also helps remove the unwanted vellus (peach fuzz) hairs from the face. Removal of the outer layer of dead cells and fine hair not only gives the skin a smoother, brighter appearance, it also enhances the penetration of skin care products. While it is not recommended for the treatment of coarse dark hair, we do offer laser and light-based treatments that are highly effective for this type of hair reduction. Dermaplaning does not affect the actual hair follicle. Once the hair is cut, it will maintain a blunt edge, but the main structure of the hair does not change and cannot be altered by dermaplaning. The vellus (peach fuzz) hair on the face will grow back the same size, color, and shape.
In addition, dermaplaning can prepare the skin for other aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels and photo facials, to give the client a better change in the outer layer of the skin.
There is little to no downtime with this procedure and most clients see and feel a difference in their skin immediately after the treatment. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to maintain a healthy glow to the skin.
