What it is
Dermaplaning (sometimes referred to as a dermaplaning facial) is a highly effective chemical-free exfoliating process that is suitable for all skin types (except acne-laden skin) and results in an even texture and natural, healthy glow to your complex.
At Radiant Skin, we recommend dermaplaning before more dramatic procedures such as chemical peels, IPLs, and hydrafacials, to boost the effectiveness of these stronger treatments. For those opting for dermaplaning only, we recommend treatment every 4 weeks to maintain an even skin texture and radiant glow.
What to expect
As your licensed technician gently scrapes off the superficial layer of dead skin on your face, you’ll experience brighter skin, softening of fine lines and wrinkles, better absorption of skin care products, and stimulation of collagen, which creates a softer, more youthful appearance.
Taking less than 45 minutes, dermaplaning comes with no down time, and can even be completed during your lunch break!
Even better: Dermplaning is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Since dermaplaning requires no application of chemicals or formulas, this treatment carries absolutely no risk to mother or child!
Dermaplaning is extremely simple: using a feathering blade, one of our licensed technicians gently scrapes off the superficial layer of dead skin cells on your face, along with any vellus hair (‘peach fuzz’). This not only eliminates dead skin cells which, unattended, can leave your face looking dull and rough, but also prevents acne that arises from clogged pores and hair follicles.
Microdermabrasion vs. Dermaplaning
At Radiant Skin, we recommend dermaplaning for clients with dry or highly sensitive skin, and those looking to eliminate ‘peach fuzz.’ For those looking to both exfoliate and reduce clogged pores, we recommend microdermabrasion, since it removes dead skin and uses a gentle suction to clear the area.
