Dermaplane in Scottsdale
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skin treatment that helps get rid of unwanted facial hair. This hair is usually referred to as peach fuzz, although its technical name is fine vellus hair. This treatment is sometimes confused with dermabrasion, but they are two different things. Dermabrasion is medical procedure involving abrading the skin with a whisk-like device. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, removes peach fuzz and freshens and revitalizes the skin. It is a simple shaving of your epidermis.
A typical dermaplaning procedure at Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health
This procedure smooths out fine wrinkles and removes dead skin cells. Removing dead skin cells with gentle abrading strokes stimulates new skin development. Because it only involves lightly stroking the skin, it makes it an ideal option for pregnant or nursing women who want smoother skin but cannot use a chemical peel. Dermaplane provides the same deep exfoliation but without the risk of absorbing chemicals through the skin that could hurt unborn or nursing babies.
Benefits of removing light facial hair and dead skin
Besides being unsightly and embarrassing, unwanted facial hair can be a breeding ground for excess oil and dirt build-up in the follicles. Removing peach fuzz does not cause it to grow back darker and thicker than before. Although it does eventually grow back, it won’t be any different from what it was before you removed it by dermaplaning. You can repeat the procedure at any time.
Also, eliminating dead skin from the face makes it easier for skin care products to penetrate to the deepest layers. You can request dermaplaning as a stand-alone service or as a preparation for a chemical peel or laser treatment. Please get in touch with us to request an appoint or a consultation.
