What it is
Dermaplaning 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 complexion.
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 exfoliates 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 aproximately 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 exfoliates the superficial layer of dead skin cells on your face, along with any vellus hair (‘peach fuzz’). This eliminates dead skin cells which, unattended, can leave your face looking dull and rough.
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.
