Would you shave your face for beauty?
Dermaplaning is, essentially, shaving your face using a sterile medical grade blade to exfoliate your skin and remove fine, vellus hair, AKA peach fuzz. The premise is simple: A licensed and trained professional gently sketches the blade over your face to give you the smoothest skin of your life. It’s an “instant-gratification” treatment, with absolutely no downtime.
When added onto a facial, the esthetician dermaplanes the skin before applying a chemical peel or finishing serums, whihch enhances the effectiveness of any product or treatment by promoting deeper product penetration.
So, you probably have some questions… We are going to try to answer some FAQs for dermaplaning:
Will my hair grow back darker or thicker? The short answer is: No, it won’t grow back thicker or darker. The peach fuzz on your face is not like the hair on the rest of your body. It is vellus hair, which does not change structure. It’s the finest hair on your body and it will remain the same color and texture regardless of how many times it’s been removed. If you didn’t have a mustache before dermaplaning, you won’t have one afterwards.
What are the benefits? Dermaplaning is a manual form of exfoliation that takes off the top layer of superficial dead skin sitting on the epidermis along with all the “fuzz”. Hair can hold excess dirt and oils, which can clog pores so it’s important to remove them to avoid breakouts. Why should you let your expensive skincare products sit on dead skin and hair when they can do their job so much better once removed through dermaplaning? Once all the guck is gone, you’ll be able to benefit greatly from your skincare products penetrating deeper and your skin cells regenerating from the exfoliation. In addition, our clients say how much better makeup goes on and stays on once the hair is gone!
Who is a good candidate? Anyone who feels like their skin needs a pick me up. If you find your skin is dry, hyper-pigmented, aging, has fine lines and wrinkles or acne scarring, you should try dermaplaning. If you’re tired of pulling down your driver side mirror and seeing the fuzz glowing in the light, you’ll love the results. It’s even safe for pregnant and breastfeeding clients. The word we feel best describes the after effects of dermaplaning is GLOW.
How frequently should I have the procedure done? Most people turn their skin over every 4 weeks but some don’t have as much peach fuzz as others so based on personal preference every 4-6 weeks is ideal. Once you feel the baby smooth skin the first time, it’s hard not to get addicted.
How much does it cost? Regular price for one procedure is $149. You also can buy a package of 4 for $400. If you are wanting to add it onto a facial, it is a $50 add on.
