What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive option that gives your face a revitalized look and texture. Almost immediately after the procedure, you’ll see renewed skin!
Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of the skin or the entire face and can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as chemical peels. When performed prior to other treatments, can remove the “peach fuzz” which can trap excess dirt and oil. And after the procedure, you’ll notice your makeup going on much smoother.
Dermaplaning helps to “refinish” the skin through a method of controlled surgical scrapina. The treatment gives the skin a smoother appearance by removing the top layer of the skin. This procedure is most often used to improve the look of facial skin that has shallow acne scars, fine lines and hyperpigmentation (brown spots) and can sometimes be used to remove pre- cancerous growths called keratosis.
Is dermaplane a safe procedure?
When performed by a well trained professional such as ourselves dermaplanning is very safe.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. This is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplanning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut will always grow back coarse. Dermaplanning is designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.
What areas can be treated?
Dermaplanning is performed on the face only.
How often is the procedure performed?
Dermplanning is usually performed every three-four weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two-three weeks worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal thirty day rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.
Does the skin peel from dermaplanning?
Occasionally the skin will peel after a dermaplane. If the procedure is done in two week intervals, the growth cycle of your hair may not be complete therefore you are treating skin unnecessarily. This may cause peeling to occur.
Can Select Dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?
Absolutely. We use a gentle peel without harsh ingredients that are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. In conjunction, they contribute to a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. This combination promotes healthy new skin cell growth while combating the signs of sun damage, aging, and environmental damage.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
All skin types may benefit from dermaplanning. A dermaplane is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair) If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.
