For years, Dermaplaning has been used to remove the vellus hair, or the peach fuzz, as well as exfoliate the epidermis. Since there are few adverse effects of the treatment, it is gradually gaining popularity. Most nursing or pregnant patients opt for dermaplaning when they want deep exfoliation, since it does not have the same side effects as a chemical peel. For example, some chemical peels can be mildly absorbed through the skin and can get into the the blood stream.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

If you have excessive vellus hair you may be a good candidate for Dermaplaning. If you have opted for a laser treatment or a deep chemical peel, your dermatologist may recommend a Dermaplaning treatment first. This is due to the fact that the epidermis will be cleared, allowing for any products to be used to penetrate deeply into the skin.

Additionally, if you are suffering from dry and rough skin, mild acne scars, superficial hyperpigmentation or fine lines and wrinkles, Dermaplaning may correct these issues for you.

What happens during the Dermaplaning procedure?

Before the treatment begins, your skin will be cleaned with a keratolytic cleanser that loosens the dead skin and allows for deeper exfoliation. Once the skin is dry, the treatment is performed with precise movements and technique using a sterile surgical blade. Fine hairs and dead skin cells are removed and then a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to the skin.
What is recovery like from Dermaplaning?

There is very little downtime following Dermaplaning and you can return to work immediately after your treatment. If you have nickel allergies, you must avoid this treatment. Some patients think that removing vellus hair will result in them growing back darker and heavier. This is a myth. The hair growth will be at the same level and texture as it was prior to this procedure.
What can I expect from my Dermaplaning results?

You will enjoy smooth, refined, glowing skin following your Dermaplaning treatment. It can be repeated as often as once every other week, but is usually carried out when the vellus hair grows back, usually within a month’s time. Patients must protect their skin from sun damage following treatment to avoid any chances of hyperpigmentation.
