At The Skin Studio and MedSpa, you can find Dermaplaning, a treatment that can help the skin in several ways.

What is Dermaplaning?

Radiant skin

Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing procedure that improves the skin’s appearance by removing the top layers through a method of controlled scraping of the skin. This treatment helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, uneven texture, and provides a healthier more radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is typically done immediately before a chemical peel and allows the peel to work more effectively. By removing the outer layer of dead skin, the peel may be applied more evenly for a more dramatic result.

Dermaplaning can be used on small areas of the skin or on the entire face and also removes vellus hair “peach fuzz ” which traps excess dirt and oil without growing back thicker. It improves scarring and smooths out small facial wrinkles leaving the skin refreshed, polished and glowing without visible irritation. Dermaplaning increases product penetration and can be done monthly!

Benefits of Dermaplaning?

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction in the appearance of deep acne scars
  • Smoother, more even complexion
  • Removal of fine facial hair, referred to as “peach fuzz”
  • Enhanced penetration of skin care products

How is Dermaplaning performed?

Dermaplaning is safely performed by using a sterile surgical blade. Don’t let the word blade overwhelm you, this is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment. Your certified aesthetician holds your skin while stroking the blade at a 45 degree angle. This medical spa treatment is quick and painless.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate?

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.

Is the treatment safe?

This treatment is extremely safe when performed by a properly trained skincare professional. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.

Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but Dermaplaning is entirely painless. There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes  heal within 24-48 hours.

Will it make the hair on my face grow back thicker and darker?

No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.

What is the benefit of adding a chemical peel with Dermaplaning?

Hyperkeratosis is a build up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sun spots and environmental damage.
