Dermaplane is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool at a forty-five degree angle that strokes the face while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as any dead skin cells. This treatment is used to exfoliate the skin, revealing radiant and healthier looking skin. The hair on the face often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, by removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Although a dermaplane facial doesn’t have the ability to remove deep wrinkles or scars, it can eliminate the fine wrinkles that can begin to develop over time. Dermaplane is performed as a standalone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectiveness .This is a wonderful form of exfoliation that can be used with or without chemicals.

What to Expect
The biggest advantage associated with dermaplane is that there is no downtime associated with this procedure. It is important for the patient to be educated about the importance of using sunscreen to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time.
