Dermaplaning, also known as blading, removes the outermost layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. This treatment is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. Think of dermaplaning as a harsher method of exfoliating. Your aesthetician will use a sharp scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of facial skin. This top layer consists of dead skin cells and vellous hairs, commonly known as “peach fuzz”. Over time, the buildup of dead skin cells and vellous hairs make your complexion look dull and flaky. They can even clog pores and hair follicles, leading to breakouts. With the removal of this dulling top layer, your skin will look brighter and feel smoother immediately after the procedure. While the scalpel is extremely sharp, in the hands of our trained aestheticians, the sensation will be akin to shaving your legs
Dermaplaning can be used on all skin types and is a procedure with no downtime. This means that you could schedule a lunch time appointment with us and still have time to eat before heading back to work!
Another huge benefit of this procedure is that your makeup will go on extremely smoothly. Since all of your peach fuzz and dead skin cells are gone, your makeup has no obstacles and will look better than ever. This also means that your skincare products will be more effective because they can penetrate the skin easily.
Since this treatment is a method of exfoliation, you should take extra care to apply sunscreen after the procedure. You should also be wary of this procedure if you have acne or a history of cold sores. The scalpel could cut a pimple, which means a longer time to heal. If you have a history of cold sores, we need to avoid the affected area in case it spreads due to micro tears in the skin
