Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. Your licensed provider will use a medical-grade scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and that unwanted peach fuzz. This is a painless treatment that has very minimal side effects including light redness immediately following treatment.
As with other methods of professional exfoliation, dermaplaning allows your skincare products to be better absorbed by your skin, making them more effective. Dermaplaning also has the added benefits of reducing the appearance of fine lines, evening skin tone and assisting with the reduction of milia, blackheads, whiteheads and congestion associated with breakouts. A unique benefit of dermaplaning is the temporary removal of vellus hair that most clients find unsightly. This leaves your skin completely smooth and ready to absorb your favorite skincare products and allow a flawless make-up application.
This method of exfoliation is great for clients that have coupersose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent them from using microdermabrasion and chemical peels. If you are looking for completely smooth skin that is hair-free this is also a great option. As far as intensity of exfoliation, dermaplaning falls in between microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Clients with active or cystic acne should avoid this treatment. If you’re unsure in choosing the best exfoliation method for your skin and desired results, consultations are complimentary.

Maximum results will be attained if hair is at least 1/4" long and the area to be waxed has been exfoliated 1-2 days prior. You mist wait 4 weeks between waxings.
To ensure maximum comfort and benefit after the treatment, it is important to follow the steps below at home:
Avoid applying heat to the waxed area for 24 hours. This includes hot baths, sauna, and steam.
Use an anti-acne lotion for face, back and chest following the treatment and twice a day until breakouts are gone. Use only an anti-acne product recommended by your skin care professional.
Avoid suntanning for 24 hours. This includes any strong ultraviolet (UV) light exposure or tanning bed treatments.
Avoid applying highly fragranced products to the waxed area. This includes, perfume, scented body lotions, anti-perspirants, cosmetics, or feminine hygiene sprays.
Avoid using harsh abrasive or exfoliants in the waxed area. However if you are prone to in-grown hairs, the day after your waxing treatment, exfoliate newly waxed area with a loofah to avoid future problems.
Any pinking of the skin should disappear within 6 to 8 hours after the waxing treatment. Slight pinking is normal, and indicates that the hair was removed from the root, rather than superficially broken off, as in shaving. This is the reason that professional waxing lasts so much longer.
For best results, repeat your professional waxing every 4 to 6 weeks depending on the area and your individual hair growth rate.
