DERMAPLANING/ REGENERATING FACIAL
Before an appointment can be booked, all potential clients must please confirm they are within the guidelines of the Dermaplaning/ Regenerating Facial Contraindications list. Once this is done, we will be happy to get you scheduled!
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of physical exfoliation that thoroughly removes dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. A sterile, surgical- grade blade is gently swept over the skin, removing the cellular debris. As a result, smoother, softer skin is revealed.
What Are The Benefits?
Our cellular turnover becomes slower each day, leaving us with a buildup of dead cells. This buildup is the root cause of many skin problems. When dead cells build up on the skin’s surface, they give “bulk” to fine lines and wrinkles, making them much more visible. Skin’s texture becomes bumpy and rough, with a dull, uneven tone. Pores are covered and clogged by the debris which leads to blemishes and harmful inflammation. This all adds up to thickened, aged, lackluster skin.
Dermaplaning forces the removal of dead cells, instantly revealing fresh, radiant skin. The skin's natural regeneration process is triggered, sparking the production of new cells. Skin care products absorb better, making them more effective. Skin immediately starts producing its own hydration, giving it a supple feel and a glowing appearance. Done regularly, dermaplaning helps to brighten and refine the skin, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and dark spots, evens out tone, and smooths away texture. Pimples and blackheads are minimized because there is far less debris on the skin's surface to trap dirt and oil inside the pores. The appearance of superficial acne scars softens
Is Dermaplaning Suitable for My Skin Type?
Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin and clients with rosacea. It is a favorable method of exfoliation for dark skin as it does not cause hyperpigmentation. Pregnant and breastfeeding women can safely enjoy dermaplaning
Will Dermaplaning Cause Vellus Hair to Grow Back Thicker?
No, this is a myth. It is physiologically impossible for dermaplaning to change the hair follicles in any way. Once the vellus hair (peach fuzz) is removed with the blade, it has a blunt end where the blade cut it, as opposed to the tapered end it had before. This blunt end can make the hair temporarily feel different than it did before, but this is the only difference in the hair, and the blunt end will soften over a matter of days. The amount, color, and texture of hair does not change
Is the Service Painful?
No, when done correctly there is no discomfort. In fact, the service is quite relaxing! Some clients experience mild sensitivity immediately afterward which dissipates quickly when proper aftercare is followed
What is Included in the Service?
The service includes a deep cleansing and hot towels. Jade stones are used to perform gentle Gua Sha facial massage. Gua Sha stimulates blood circulation and collagen production. Facial muscles are gently toned, and inflammation and tension is calmed. Lymph fluid and the buildup of stagnant toxins are effectively drained from the cells, reducing puffiness. Skin is then prepped and dermaplaning is performed. After a final cleansing, soothing products and SPF are applied
How Long Does the Service Take?
Usually 60 minutes
How Often Should Dermaplaning Be Done?
Every 4 - 6 weeks is recommended
