What is a Dermaplane?
A Dermaplane is a mechanical form of exfoliation using a surgical blade, to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus (baby) hair from the surface of your skin.
What are the Dermaplaning Benefits?
Removing the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus (baby) hair has a number of benefits including stimulating collagen production, tightening pores, helping to treat skin discoloration, evening out of skin texture, and allowing better product penetration. Results are immediate, makeup goes on smoother and skin complexion appears brighter and more youthful.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
Pricing for dermaplaning is around $79. We accept cash, major credit cards and checks, and we also accept CareCredit® as a financing option for our patients.
Who is a Dermaplaning Candidate?
Almost everyone is a candidate for this treatment, including men, pregnant women, individuals with dry, rough skin, and those with a lot of fine facial hair. Any individuals with certain skin conditions, very thin skin, excessive skin laxity, or higher graded acne should avoid this treatment, as a chemical peel would be better suited to strengthen and treat the skin. Your skincare professional can provide you with a personalized treatment plan and an at-home regimen in order to get the results you desire.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Using a 10R blade or “butter blade” at a 45 degree angle, the top layer of dead skin and baby hair is gently “shaved” off to reveal the new, brighter skin cells underneath. Medical grade skincare products are immediately applied to replenish the skin, followed by an SPF to protect it.
Is there any Downtime with Dermaplaning ?
The treatment is completely painless and does not require any downtime. If possible, avoid wearing makeup immediately after so your skin can reap the benefits of the treatment. A personalized skincare regimen including sunscreen is a must, as your skin needs to be replenished and shielded from any environmental damage including UVA and UVB rays.
