Dermaplaning is a highly effective procedure for removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The Dermaplane will also remove the layer of vellous hair that often covers the face, commonly known as “peach fuzz” which traps dirt and oil. The treatment gives the skin a smoother appearance. The removal of the outer layer of skin cells also allows for better penetration and absorption of both pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical products. These skin cells are no longer a protectant, but are a barrier for other procedures and/or products.
A highly specialized instrument is used to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled scraping. This procedure is safely performed using a sterile blade and handles exclusively for Dermaplaning. It is safely performed holding the blade at a 45 degree angle and stroked against the skin while holding the skin taught and stroking gently across the area. It is non-invasive, quick and easy!
Clients complaining of dull, dry, congested, or dehydrated skin are excellent candidates. Typically these issues are caused by a surface barrier of dead skin cells that are preventing topical products from penetrating too deeply into the skin. Also, impurities from within are trapped and underlying cells are unable to surface. Dermaplaing can remove this barrier and allow the client’s skin to respond to skin care products.
Dermaplaing is an excellent treatment for any clients currently using Retin-A, Retinols, Glycolic acid, high strengths of Salicycli acids or other aggressive topical treatments. Dermaplaing will accelerate the sloughing off of dead, peeling skin and is a great alternative to waxing. Many aggressive products cause the skin to be more vulnerable to damage and waxing may cause skin damage.
Dermaplaning is not recommended for someone who has highly sensitive skin, has pustular and oozing skin or active rosacea. Typically, diabetic or auto-immune clients should not be treated due to poor healing times.
