Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair.It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) to give your skin a smoother, brighter complexion.
Even individuals with skin conditions like rosacea or sensitive skin can utilize dermaplaning without adverse side effects. The only people who can’t dermaplane are those with active pustular acne.”
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. Dermaplaning helps to diminish fine lines and imprive skin texture and tone
After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment.
At Age Refined we can offer other treatments in conjunction to enhance your skin after dermaplaning such as Dermalux or even a superficial chemical peel to obtain maximum results.
