ALL ABOUT DERMAPLANING
WHAT IS DERMAPLAINING?
Dermaplaning is a method of advanced exfoliation, where our licensed aestheticians use a sterile surgical scalpel to remove dead and dulling skin cells in addition to vellus hair (peachfuzz). This procedure promotes smoother skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars, diminishes the look of fine lines, and reveals a smoother, brighter complexion. In fact, our aestheticians often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for deeper treatments such as our PCA signature treatments and chemical peels. Dermaplaning is recommended every 3-4 weeks for maximum results.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Anyone who feels like their skin needs a little pick me up! This exfoliation technique can be effective on most skin types, but has extremely beneficial properties for problematic skin or the relief of dry skin, and in these dry Wisconsin winter months is there ever too much moisture? Plus, as an added benefit, dermaplaning allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Dermaplaning is the removal of dead skin sitting on the surface of the face + neck. In addition to removing the dull, dead skin, dermaplaning also removes vellus hair (better known as peach fuzz) from the skin. Hair can hold excess dirt and oils, so it is important to remove this hair to eliminate the chance of breakouts.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER DERMAPLANING?
The best part about dermaplaning is there is almost no recovery time! Although there is no time needed for recovery, we recommend maintaining a clean face for 24 hours to maximize benefits of this treatment.
HOW FREQUENTLY SHOULD THIS SERVICE BE PERFORMED?
On average, people turn over their skin every 4 weeks, so based on personal preference, we recommend every 4-6 weeks ideally, but once you feel your skin we know you won’t be able to wait until your next appointment!
