FEELING FUZZY?
DERMAPLANING IS YOUR ANSWER

There is only one place peach fuzz is cute – on a peach! It certainly does not belong on your face and now there is a safe, fast and reliable way of ridding your skin of excess vellus hair while exfoliating it, leaving your skin with a youthful glow.

Not to be confused with dermabrasion, dermaplaning is a gentle technique using a surgical scalpel (and a trained hand) to “shave” the skin’s surface. In addition to removing vellus hair, this technique removes the top-most layer of dead skin. This helps exfoliate the skin far beyond what your best store-bought exfoliator can offer.

Although it is widely used, dermaplaning is not well-known as it does not require any special equipment like dermabrasion does. Here are some facts you should know regarding dermaplaning and some other procedures it is often confused with.

  1. Safe for everyone. Sure, every procedure says this, but there are levels to this! Dermaplaning is safe for every skin type and tone because it does not require any substance that to interact with the skin – just a surgical scalpel and an experienced aesthetician. Other procedures such as chemical peels and dermabrasion are not 100% safe for every skin type as they require chemicals or penetration of the skin.
  2. Hair will grow back thicker. FALSE! It is only an old wives’ tail that shaved hair will grow back darker and thicker. Your hair will grow back after dermaplaning, however at the same rate and thickness as it was before.
  3. Why not shave? Shaving is a great exfoliator as long as you use a sharp blade. However, when it comes to your face, shaving just won’t cut it. The blade used in dermaplaning is surgical-grade, meaning it is especially sharp. Additionally, the expertise of an aesthetician is much needed to make sure all of the grooves of your face are carefully addressed.
