Who is it for?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except for those with active acne. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.
What does the treatment feel like?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.
First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, the aesthetician will pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The procedure takes about 20 minutes.
