Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion.
Dermaplaning also allows for a better penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to be applied on smoothly.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. It is recommended to wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. Always discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with our estheticians before starting a treatment.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
If you have resilient skin, it is suggested to combine a chemical peel and dermaplaning in the same session for even better results.
Some women are often concerned that shaving the peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but in fact this not true! Your face hair is Superficial vellus hair (clear or white soft fine facial hair) that will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment. So no need to worry about it growing back darker!
As we age our Cell Renewal Factor (CRF) or cell turnover rate slows down. Cell turnover is the process by which our skin produces new skin cells which travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shed off the skin. This is what keeps dead cells from building up on the skins surface.
Our CRF (Cell Renewal Factor) changes as we age:
Babies – 14 days
Teenagers – 21 – 28 days
Middle age – 28 – 42 days
50 and up – 42 – 84 days
That means that as we age, the top layer of the skin, the one we see, touch, becomes dull. We lose our “glow”. And, think about this, if the top layer of your skin is really lots and lots and lots of dead skin cells (between 15 to 20 layers), how much of those antioxidant and retinol serums you are applying are actually getting through and doing what they are supposed to be doing?
