What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
Is it also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving the skin smooth supple and vibrant.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with acne scars, dull skin, dry skin, sun damaged skin and fine wrinkles. It is great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments, anti-aging facials, makeup application and home care products.
How it Works
The basic concept of Dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45 degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven. Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged.
Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
During a Dermaplaning procedure, you should not feel any pain. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment.
What to expect?
You do not need to plan any downtime to recover from a Dermaplaning treatment. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure. You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you are finished with the Dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results.
As any redness subsides you will be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterwards.
Results of Dermaplaning are not permanent. The procedure claims to clear away up to three weeks worth of dead skin cells. After three weeks to a month, your results will have faded.
The dermaplaning procedure last 55 minutes and has a cost of $155 CAD.
