Dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to safely exfoliate the skin. By removing the top layer of the dead skin and the vellus hairs, also known as “peach fuzz”, the skin is left feeling smooth and clean. The technicians at Premier Spa and Laser Center recommend that this procedure is done one month apart, ensuring that the skin has completed its natural rejuvenation cycle, which can prevent peeling. This procedure is only done on the face, and the eyebrows and nose are avoided.
The best candidates for dermaplaning have dry, rough skin and are looking to reduce acne or an uneven skin tone. All adults are eligible for this treatment, even pregnant women. As we age our skin doesn’t reproduce cells as fast, meaning there is a larger buildup of dead skin cells. Because of this, our older patients have had great results with dermaplaning. Those with acne or oily skin should not have a dermaplaning treatment. This treatment removes the hairs which could allow the oil to cause bacteria growth which could lead to acne breakouts.
The vellus hair being removed is not like other hair on your body. This hair will not grow back darker or thicker, so it safe to be removed every month.
