Why Dermaplane?

Dermaplaning is a professional skin treatment that removes dead, dry skin cells from the epidermis. Performed after an initial cleanse, the technique is simple and non-invasive.  Clients will not experience any discomfort as the treatment is performed.
A side benefit of Dermaplane is removal of the vellus hair that some refer to as “peach fuzz”. Vellus hair holds onto dirt and oil. Removing it leaves the skin’s texture softer, smoother and cleaner in preparation. Contrary to popular belief removal of this hair during the treatment will not effect the texture of any future hair growth.

How often should I receive a Dermaplane treatment?

Dead skin builds up after 30 days of removal, so every four to six weeks is recommended. Following a treatment, the smooth texture allows for masks and serums to penetrate the skin’s surface more deeply, thus increasing the effectiveness of facial being performed.  

Here are five tips for utilizing other forms of skincare once a Dermaplane has been performed:

Double Cleanse

Double Cleanse the skin in the evening, first with an oil-based cleanser and then with a milky or foaming cleanser. The added cleansing benefit of this process is helpful while allowing for further hydration.

Layer Serums

If you are using more than one serum, the products will penetrate most effectively if you layer them based on their consistency. Apply the thinner serum first followed by the product with a thicker consistency. The first serum will penetrate deeper into the skin if it is not blocked by a product with a thicker consistency.

Use a humidifier

When using a Hyaluronic Acid Serum at night, sleep with a humidifier on. The serum will actually pull that moisture into the skin allowing for increased hydration and a healthy glow.

Retinol

If you’re using Retinol or Retin-A, put an occlusive like Aquaphor over the application to hold that moisture in.

Dermaplane with an aesthetic peel

Dermaplane treatments can be done in conjunction with aesthetic peels without harming the skin. This will maximize exfoliation, assist with collagen production and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is even more effective following a Dermaplane service.

-Red light will help stimulate collagen.

-Blue light helps eliminate acne causing bacteria.

-Green light assists in evening out skin tone.

-Yellow light will reduce inflammation associated with rosacea or sunburn.

Microneedling

Microneedling, a process that painlessly creates channels in the skin can also be done in conjunction with Dermaplane. This additional treatment maximizes product penetration and collagen production.

Finally, always remember to use sunscreen after a Dermaplane treatment as “fresh” skin will be exposed to the elements. Keeping a powder foundation in your car to touch up face, hands, neck and chest area can help protect skin while on the go.
