Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years and has recently became popular as a celebrity must have treatment.
Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the technican simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. Removing epidermal skin allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. This is a great treatment for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
