Beautify your skin’s surface.

SMOOTH YOUR SKIN WITH DERMAPLANNING

Dermaplaning is a popular and safe procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt, dead cells, and vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz.” 

 

Dermaplaning treatment is different from dermabrasion or other exfoliating procedures. During this treatment an aesthetician uses a special tool called a dermatome which looks like an electric razor, back and forth to scrape off the top layer of dead skin. The length of the treatments is typically 20 to 30 minutes. After the treatment is finished, an aesthetician will soothe your skin with a calming and hydrating substance like aloe and apply sunscreen to protect your face.

With dermaplaning you get a superior level of exfoliation with a range of benefits. Dermatologists agree that this treatment is effective for people looking to make their skin appear more smooth, bright, and youthful. 

Before you have a dermaplaning treatment, we will go over your medical history, skin type, and any possible precautions to give you the results you want. Book your free consultation today or purchase your dermaplaning procedure in our Online Shop.

Dermaplaning is a kind of exfoliation process that is distinct from dermabrasion or other exfoliating treatments.

Before beginning a dermaplaning treatment, we will discuss your medical history, skin type, and any precautions that may be necessary to ensure that you get the results you want.

What To Expect From This Treatment

There is no need to schedule any particular downtime after your dermaplaning procedure in Vancouver. Some patients may have some redness or the sensation that their skin has been treated for the first 2-3 days after the service, but this will fade. You'll be able to notice the benefits more clearly in the days after the treatment when any redness decreases. 

 

Your skin may seem brighter immediately after dermaplaning, but it may take several days to experience the full effects of the procedure. Dermaplaning produces excellent results, however these benefits are not long-lasting they normally last for up to 3-4 weeks. 

Following dermaplaning in Vancouver, you will want to make sure that your skin is protected from the sun. Do not leave your home without applying sunscreen to your face for the first several weeks after having dermaplaning therapy as your skin is still in a fragile and sensitive state.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What to expect and how to prepare?

You don’t need to plan any specific downtime after your dermaplaning treatment. Some people might notice slight redness or feel like their skin was scraped for 2-3 days after the procedure, but this will subside.

Who Should Consider Getting Dermaplaning Done? 

Dermaplaning in Vancouver is a non-invasive procedure that is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. It is an excellent alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Fine facial hair, acne scars, fine wrinkles, excessively sensitive or dry skin, redness or rosacea, or prominent facial veins are all strong reasons to consider this product for your skin type. Acne patients should not have their skin shaved because of the risk of infection. 

How Many Treatments Will I Be Required To Undergo? 

According to the condition being treated, the number of treatments required will vary. Due to the fact that dermaplaning is the most severe kind of exfoliation, patients will see instant improvements such as glowing, brighter skin, decrease in dark spots, and the absence of peach fuzz after only one treatment. It is advised that you have 3-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks to address more permanent issues like sun damage, fine lines, and pore size. 

 

After that, you should have monthly maintenance treatments to maintain your skin in good condition.

 

Is It Possible To Combine Dermaplaning With Other Treatments? 

Yes, and in fact, it is highly encouraged. When used in conjunction with other treatments such as Microneedling, Laser Genesis, and Chemical Peels, dermaplaning increases the effectiveness of the products and treatments by eliminating the top layer of dead skin which prevents penetration of the products and treatments. 

 

Combination exfoliation treatments help to promote healthy skin cell turnover, prevent acne, decrease dark spots and blemishes, and increase collagen formation for plumper, more youthful-looking skin. 

How Does A Dermaplaning Treatment Feel? Can I Expect Discomfort?

In no way, shape, or form! In fact, it is a very soft and relaxing procedure that is absolutely painless and non-invasive. The blade just scrapes at the top layer of skin, never cutting you or your skin.

 

Whenever you come in for your dermaplaning treatment, we'll begin by doing a very soothing facial wash to rid your skin of any debris and to relax you before starting the service. 

 

After that, we'll begin the process of drawing your skin taut and gently shaving your face with the scalpel to remove the peach fuzz and any sun damage that has developed on your face. Depending on the particular demands of the skin, it may be required to make many passes but should still be a relatively quick treatment.  

Is There Any Downtime After Having Dermaplaning Done On Your Skin? 

There is no downtime required for this "lunch hour" treatment, and most patients are able to return to their usual activities soon thereafter. 

 

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy that is among the safest currently available. Following a treatment, some individuals may have redness or a dry sensation in their skin, although this is very transitory. Following your treatment, you should continue to utilize ZO Skin Health products and sunscreens, as well as avoid direct sunlight for a few days following your procedure.
