What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an effective way of exfoliation. Using a #10 or #14 blade we carefully shave, or remove, the dead skin cells from the epidermis. Along with exfoliating, dermaplaning also helps remove the unwanted vellous hair from the face. Usually, you can see a difference after the first treatment. While this is an aggressive treatment, dermaplaning does not break the capillaries on the face
Why doesn’t the hair grow back thicker?
Fine facial “peach fuzz” is one of the two types of hair that everyone has. It’s called vellous hair and is the fine translucent hair that you can see if you look closely on women’s face, chest and back. The other type of hair is terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, in the pubic area, brows, and on the lower face in men. Because Vellous hair is so fine and different from terminal hair, cutting it does not make it grow in thicker or feel stubbly afterwards.
How often is this procedure performed?
The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days and since Dermaplaning removes about 2-3 weeks-worth of dead skin cells, it’s best to wait about 3-4 weeks between treatments.
Can dermaplaning be performed in the same visit as another procedure?
Absoultely! It is the perfect stand alone or combine with: microdermabrasion, lighter peels, Skin Classic, microneedling, and Dermafiling. Treatments become more effective and products are more evenly distributed and deeper penetration achieved.
Prices for dermaplaning treatments can range from $75.00 for dermaplaning alone to $300.00 for a dermaplaning combination treatment depending on your geographic region.
Why train with me to learn how to Dermaplane?
Simple, I have been Dermaplaning since training in the 1993 and have been training others for the past 8 years. As a surgical nurse for more than 20 years safe handling of scapel is paramount in the OR and just as important in the treatment room. Don't be fooled by the ease of which it looks. It does take practice and a calm demeanor. I will guide you through the process and I am sure that this will become one of your most satisfying and highly sought after procedures.
