What is Dermaplane?
Dermaplane is an effective way to exfoliate the face, revealing radiant and healthy skin. It also removes the fine, “peach fuzz” hair on the face. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.
This treatment can be combined with a collagen mask for gorgeous, glowing skin. It is also a great treatment for patients who are pregnant or nursing and want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents.
How does it work?
A sterile surgical scalpel is used in a feathering motion to gently scrape away the surface layer of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. It then increases the cell turnover, smoothing and softening skin.
How do I prepare?
Do not use retinol or harsh, drying products on the area to be treated for 48 hours prior to treatment. Patients with inflamed acne or raised lesions on the skin should not undergo dermaplaning.
What are the side effects and risks?
There are no side effects and no downtime associated with dermaplane.
