What is Dermaplaning?
It is a skin rejuvenation treatment that removes dead skin and vellus facial hair (peach fuzz). It involves gentle mechanical exfoliation of the uppermost portions of skin to remove dull and dry layers. It could be done in conjunction with a facial or as a standalone treatment. Your skin care products (especially if you are using medical grade skin care) will now work wonders! The overall results are: glowing, radiant, smooth and make up ready skin!

Prepping for Dermaplaning:
Discontinue any manual or physical exfoliation 3-5 days prior. To ensure the skin is not damaged by over-exfoliation, discontinue use of any products containing ingredients that slough off skin cells. (This includes, but is not limited to AHAs, BHAs, enzymes, micro-beads, and retinoids.) Discontinue use of Retinol for 7-14 days prior to treatment depending on skin condition. If you have just begun using the product and are experiencing flaking, peeling, redness, dryness, or irritation, discontinue for 14 days prior to receiving this service. Avoid sun exposure for 5-7 days prior to the service. Do not schedule Botox or facial filler prior to dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning should not be performed on clients who are undergoing cancer treatments, experiencing active acne outbreaks, have uncontrolled diabetes, using Retin A or Accutane, have an active cold sore, have had laser treatments within the last two weeks, have a sun burn, those who have a blood disorder or are taking blood thinners.
