What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a little procedure that goes a long way in improving skin texture. The treatment involves the gentle removal of the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the surface of your skin. This method of controlled “scraping” is safely performed by our own master esthetician, Franki Lambiotte, using a sterile, disposable surgical blade. The procedure is done to improve skin smoothness and texture. In addition, dermaplaning has been shown to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase serum absorption, and facilitate mechanical exfoliation.
Dermaplaning involves scraping your facial skin with a scalpel to remove dead skin and peach fuzz. After using the scalpel, Franki sometimes applies a light enzyme peel, moisturizer, and sunblock for enhanced skin protection. The entire process typically lasts 30 minutes, though the time may vary based on your particular goals. Interestingly, unlike most rejuvenation procedures, dermaplaning is virtually painless and does not result in any peeling. Please note that Franki is a licensed professional with years of experience working in the esthetic field, please don’t try this at home!
Dermaplaning Treatment Results
Dermaplaning helps revitalize your look through a unique mechanical exfoliation process that leaves your skin glowing and seriously smooth. In addition, this specialized form of exfoliation can make your skin more receptive to serum-based facial treatments. After your visit, you are free to return to your daily routine with an added feeling of ease and confidence.
Treatment Recovery and Downtime
The results of dermaplaning can be felt instantly and the procedure involves no downtime. The smoothness and clear texture of your skin will remain for months, and the removed hair will not grow back thicker or darker following treatment. Franki performs each procedure with the patient’s individual needs in mind. Be sure to inquire about our additional skincare treatments during your visit!
