When it comes to Beauty, it's okay to be Selfish!

DERMAPLANNING

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. Using a sterile surgical blade, your clinician will gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and vellous hair. Through this precise, delicate technique, you will immediately notice a new silky softness to your skin. This method is a good alternative for those skin types who are not able to tolerate chemical peels and microdermabrasion. This treatment is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes the nose, eye lids, neck, or chest. In addition to removing fine facial hairs, reduce the visibility of acne scarring, wrinkles, and revitalize dull, sallow skin. Dermaplaning is ideal for those with uneven skin and fine lines around their mouth and eyes. Also, for women who have a little extra fuzz on their face, blading can be a pain-free alternative to tweezing and waxing. There’s no need for women to fear that the vellous hair on their face will grow back thicker after it’s been bladed because it won’t. Unlike terminal hairs, which are thicker (men’s facial hair, leg hair), vellous hairs grow back the same after they’ve been removed, as the structure of the hair does not become damaged.
