With a “dullish” scalpel and a steady hand, dead skin cells and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) are shaved away. The immediate side effects: brighter, more radiant skin, and the smoothest, softest skin you’ve likely felt in a very long time, if ever.
Dermaplaning allows for better penetration of skin care products, prepares skin for other procedures such as lasers, and treatments, such as SilkPeel Dermalinfusion and chemical peels (Dermapeel). Dermaplaning also helps create an ideal surface for super smooth makeup application. These treatments also can be effective in smoothing superficial scars, especially when followed with a chemical peel.
Dermaplaning is great for all skin types, and is a perfect treatment for pregnant and nursing mothers. Dermaplaning is not recommended for patients with active breakouts, cystic acne, or hypersensitive skin. Once acne is under control, dermaplaning and chemical peel or SkinPen micro-needling treatments generally are ideal treatments to quickly smooth skin.
