Who can perform Dermaplaning?
A licenced esthetician, RN, medical esthetician, or cosmetologist who has been professionally trained can perform the treatment.
What is the technique?
This technique is safely performed using a a blade specifically designed for Dermaplaning. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently glides the blade along the skins surface at a 45 degree angle removing dead skin and vellus hair.
Is it safe?
It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained technician utilizing Dermaplaning methods and tools.
Once the vellus hair is removed will it grow back thicker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly-usually in about 4 weeks.
there are two types of hair that grow on our bodies:
- Vellus hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body.
- Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas.
Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
How often can this procedure be performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.
Who can be treated?
All skin types can benefit from Dermaplaning. Men can be Dermaplaned on non-beard areas only, but typically prefer Microdermabrasion.
Who cannot be treated?
- Clients with active acne outbreaks should not be treated until lesions are healed.
- Clients with bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting.
- Clients with diabetes, not under control by diet or medication.
- Clients undergoing cancer treatments.
- Clients with active cold sores.
No guarantees are written or implied as each person has different skin types which regenerate at different rates. Environment and lifestyle also affect the quality and longevity of the results.
