Dermplaning is a procedure that resurfaces the skin by removing the thin, outermost layer of skin which is made up of dead epidermal skin cells revealing a brighter, smoother complexion. A specialized surgical blade is used to gently scrape away the very top layer of skin. This treatment is wonderful for exfoliating the skin, reducing skin pigmentation, pore size and wrinkles. Dermaplaning also helps to remove fine villus hair (peach fuzz). Removing the dead skin cells and fine villus hair prepares the skin for other aesthetic procedures such as laser treatments, microneedling or chemical peels. This treatment allows for better penetration of your own personal skin care regimen and creates a flawless canvas for make up application. Your skin will look and feel smoother after a dermaplaning treatment.
Dermaplaning is a quick and easy procedure performed in about 20 minutes in the office. There is almost no downtime or discomfort. The procedure is usually repeated once the villus hair returns which is about every 4 weeks. It will not cause hair to grow back any darker or coarser.
