dermaplaning and exfoliation raleigh ncRemove unwanted hair and get smoother skin painlessly and without surgery. Dermaplaning, or epidermal leveling, is an exfoliation procedure that uses a small blade to clear away a top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

Dermaplaning can be performed in isolation, or as a prelude to other skin treatments in order to enhance their effectiveness and enable deeper penetration of chemical peels or microdermabrasion. In fact, dermaplaning is often performed during the same visit as a chemical peel to increase the effectiveness of the peel. A dermaplane treatment also helps boost absorption of active products, increase skin’s firmness and elasticity, even skin tone and minimize acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermaplaning is a procedure that can provide benefits for every skin type, men and women both (although you should not pursue a dermaplaning treatment if you have active acne). It has no downtime.

Dermaplaning FAQ

Q: If Dermaplaning removes facial hair, won’t it grow back thicker?

A: Fortunately, the peach fuzz type hair that is affected by dermaplaning does not grow back thicker once it is removed. Hair that does grow back thicker is known as terminal hair, which grows in hormonally influenced areas such as armpits, the scalp, legs, etc. This type of hair, when it returns, returns coarser than before. Peach fuzz type hair is known as vellus hair. These fine and translucent hairs grow back after a few weeks with the same length and thickness they’ve always had.

Removing vellus hair contributes to other skin care efforts in addition to providing a smoother surface. Peach fuzz traps dirt and oil, leading to common and irritating skin problems.

Getting rid of peach fuzz through dermaplaning treatments in Raleigh, NC can not only prevent further skin problems but help other facial products work more effectively.

Q: How often should I obtain dermaplaning treatments?

A: Dermaplaning removes approximately 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. The normal lifecycle of skin is about 30 days, and so dermaplaning should be done about once a month to clear out accumulated old skin cells.

Q: Is Dermaplaning painful?

A: Dermaplaning as administered by a professional in Raleigh, NC, is not painful. Skin may be a little sensitive after this exfoliation procedure but there is no downtime and the experience is no more painful than shaving one’s legs. Makeup, moisturize, and other skin care products can be applied after dermaplaning.
