When you look in the mirror, is your skin as soft, smooth and youthful as you’d like it to be?
With an exciting technique called Dermaplaning, you will notice improvement in the tone and texture of your skin right away! This unique approach removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair (vellus hair) revealing newer, younger skin. Dermaplaning also stimulates the production of fresh, young skin cells, while helping your skin to breathe easier. Active ingredients in skincare products can penetrate into the deeper layers resulting in healthier skin.
Treatments are gentle and take very little time, ideal for your busy lifestyle. With no downtime, you’ll return to your favourite activities right away. Perfect before a social event, skin looks better in pictures and make up glides on easily for a more natural look. You’ll enjoy the confidence that comes with having healthy, vibrant and younger-looking skin.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a specialized sterile scalpel instrument designed to scrape away accumulated dead skin cells and vellus hair. It is a comfortable, relaxing procedure that can be combined with other services to improve the efficacy. It is also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. Dermaplaning creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment to prepare for high profile occasions.
What Are The Benefits Of Dermaplaning?
We recommend Dermaplaning for almost all skin types and is even good for pregnant or nursing mothers who want the results of a professional exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into their blood stream. Dermaplaning is not recommended for skin with active acne until resolved. Dermaplaning has a lot of benefits on the health of your skin such as:

Once Vellus Hair Is Removed Will It 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 dermaplaning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplaning 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. The soft fine vellus hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks. In fact, over time, and with ongoing Dermaplaning treatments, vellus hair will appear even finer.
Note: Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing and threading cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Your results are immediate. That is one of the great things about Dermaplaning. No downtime and no waiting to look your best. This is the perfect treatment before a social event!
How Long Does Dermaplaning Take?
Dermaplaning treatments can be as short as 30 minutes or can be part of a 60 or 75 minute facial treatment that incorporates enzymes, extractions, masks, infusions, light therapies and/or chemical peels. Your medical aesthetician will help you determine the right combination for your skin.
Who is Dermaplaning For?
Dermaplaning is ideal for women of all skin types and colours who are interested in improving the health and appearance of their skin. Dermaplaning is also perfectly safe if you’re Pregnant or Nursing and want a deep exfoliation without a more aggressive option like a chemical peel. It helps keep your skin clean and clear of superficial hyperpigmentation that can occur during hormonal fluctuations as well.
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
Dermaplaning is a safe procedure that can only be performed by a licensed and specially trained practitioner. Small cuts are always a possibility when using a blade, but they are minimal and heal quickly.
How Do I Care For My Skin After Treatment?
Following Dermaplaning treatment, you may see some redness, however, there is no downtime . Your freshly exfoliated skin may be sensitive 1-2 days following the treatment. You should avoid direct sun exposure during this period. It is also important during your post-treatment period that you continue to treat and protect your skin with home care products. (you need to maintain those results) and make sure to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
How Often Should I Come In For Dermaplaning?
You’ll love the way your skin looks and feels from the very first treatment. We recommend coming in every 4 weeks to maintain results and continue to see improvement.
