Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

 Compare an apple to a peach and you’ll instantly notice one difference: the smooth skin of the apple gives it a delicious shine, while the peach is covered in a fine fuzz that leaves its skin looking dull. Likewise, the skin of your face may be dulled by what dermatologists call fine vellus hair, otherwise known as “peach fuzz.” To attain that apple-smooth complexion, Glow MedSpa offers Dermaplaning skin resurfacing.

What Is Dermaplaning?

In a quick, chemical-free procedure, our clinicians will gently abrade the surface of the skin. With an ultra-fine, surgical-grade blade, they will exfoliate your epidermis to eliminate fine vellus hair and dead skin cells, letting your beauty shine through.

Dermaplaning Is Excellent for…

  • Pregnant women or anyone who wants a chemical-free deep exfoliation with no peeling agents or rough abrasives
  • Patients who are concerned about peach fuzz causing an oily buildup that makes their skin appear dull
  • Uncovering a smooth surface so anti-aging compounds and other skin care products can better permeate the skin, allowing them to work more efficiently
  • Readying skin for chemical peels, microneedling, or laser treatments

Dermaplaning Might Be Your Answer If… 

  • You’re embarrassed by acne scars and want a safe, yet powerful option to get smoother skin
  • You’re bothered by a dry complexion that makes you look older than you feel
  • Dead skin cells have accumulated on your face, causing blemishes and fine lines to be too noticeable
  • You simply want a gentle, yet effective option for clearing away your skin’s top layer to unveil a sleek, glowing face

Dermaplaning Facts 

  • Dermaplaning is a great facial skin resurfacing option for people who have rough, dry skin; mild acne scarring; fine lines and wrinkles; or hyperpigmentation like sun spots or melasma.
  • The fine vellus hair that this treatment removes will not regrow thicker or darker, despite rumors to the contrary. It will regrow at the same rate, with the same fine texture and color as it had before the treatment.
  • Sun exposure can be dangerous after this treatment because it may cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Although the treatment can be done as little as two weeks apart, most patients need repeat treatments when vellus hair begins to reappear after about one month.
  • The treatment may be combined with other Glow MedSpa treatments, allowing anti-aging compounds to deeply penetrate the skin.

How Does the Treatment Work?

In a quick, chemical-free procedure, our clinicians will gently abrade the surface of the skin. With an ultra-fine, surgical-grade blade, they will exfoliate your epidermis to eliminate fine vellus hair and dead skin cells, using feather-light strokes. Our clinicians are proficient at this technique.

We begin by cleansing and drying your skin. During the treatment that follows, you can relax as we reveal your skin’s radiance with precise motions. Following treatment, we will apply a deeply hydrating moisturizer, followed by a clinical-strength sunscreen to protect it from sun damage. For patients who wish to combine this treatment with another, we will quickly begin preparing your skin for the following treatment. Your skin will be well-primed to absorb other products.

Recovery

Dermaplaning is fast and easy and involves very little discomfort or down time. You will not need any recovery time, in fact. When your treatment is finished, your clinician will gently spread a deeply hydrating moisturizer onto your skin, followed by a clinical-strength protective sunscreen that will allow you to continue your day as usual. You’ll need to follow any and all post-treatment instructions we may give you so that you will be as comfortable as possible and get the most from the treatment.

Results

After treatment, you’ll notice your skin glowing right away because the dead skin cells and dulling peach fuzz will be eliminated. Oil and skin care products tend to cling to fine vellus hair, so once that hair is gone, you will see a distinct illuminating effect that will make you look younger. You’ll need to return for repeat treatments once your vellus hair regrows after about a month.
