Dermaplaning

Say Goodbye to Fuzz, & Hello to Smooth Skin

Dermace Laser Clinic offers a medical-grade solution to eliminate dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. It is an effective, safe, and painless procedure delivering instant results - removing approximately 2-3 weeks' worth of dead skin cells. 

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a surgical scalpel or razor to exfoliate the skin and remove fine facial hair (vellus hair). While the procedure is relatively simple, the science behind how it works is more complex.

Here are the basic steps of the dermaplaning process:

  1. Preparation: The skin is cleansed and prepared with a gentle exfoliating cleanser to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. The patient may be given a topical numbing cream to reduce discomfort during the procedure.

  2. Treatment: The aesthetician or dermatologist uses a surgical scalpel or razor to gently scrape the skin, removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair. The blade is held at a 45-degree angle and moved across the skin in short, swift strokes.

  3. Aftercare: After the procedure, the skin may be pinkish and slightly irritated. The patient should avoid sun exposure and apply a moisturizer to soothe the skin.

BENEFITS

  • Removes vellus hair which traps oils and dirt leading to clogged pores

  • Eliminates dead skin cells

  • Softens skin

  • Smoother complexion (make-up will sit nicely on the surface of the skin)

  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation

  • Enables better product penetration

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines

  • Delivers instant results with no downtime (skin may appear pinkish - will diminish within 24-48 hours)

  • How does a chemical peel work?
    Chemical peels work by using specific acid solutions to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. The acids penetrate the skin and dissolve the bonds between old skin cells, allowing them to be sloughed off. This process encourages the growth of new skin cells, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.
  • What skin concerns can chemical peels address?
    Chemical peels can effectively address various skin concerns, including acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities. The type and strength of the peel will depend on the specific concerns being targeted.
  • Are chemical peels painful?
    During the chemical peel, you may experience a tingling or mild burning sensation, which is generally well-tolerated.
  • How long is the recovery period after a chemical peel?
    The recovery time can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel. Superficial peels typically have minimal downtime, with some redness and peeling that lasts for a few days. Our medium to deep peels may require a longer recovery period, ranging from several days to a few weeks, during which the skin may appear red, swollen, and have more noticeable peeling.
  • How many sessions are needed to see results?
    The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns and the type of peel used. Some people may see noticeable improvements after just one session, while others may require a series of treatments for optimal results. Your skincare professional will assess your skin and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  • How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?
    Following a chemical peel, it's crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your skincare professional. This may include using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding harsh skincare products or treatments that can irritate the skin.
