Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment in which we use a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin along with the peach fuzz on your face (vellus hair). This hair often causes a build-up of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives you healthier-looking skin. You’ll immediately look more radiant with a brighter more youthful skin tone. Benefits are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots. Lines appear finer. Improved pore size. Superficial pigmentation reduced. Acne scarring reduced.
Contraindications for Dermaplaning include:
- Current or recent use of Accutane, eczema, dermatitis, malignant skin tumours, active infection, sunburn and keratoses.
- Allergy to nickel
- Any Cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation)
- Blood thinners
- Autoimmune Diseases
