For years professional models and actresses have found the perfect skin through Dermaplaning. This simple treatment involves using a small scalpel that gently removes the layer of dead skin cells across our face. This technique exfoliates the skin and achieves a level of softness you have never seen. Dermaplaning is one of our most popular dermatology treatments; here is what you can expect from Dermaplaning St Louis.
A small scalpel, usually around a 10-gauge size, gently removes the top level of dead skin cells on the face. Our technicians make sure the blade will gently glide across your skin without leaving a mark.
One of the best parts of Dermaplaning is that it is virtually painless, with most of our patients saying it feels like shaving. Our technicians are some of the most experienced in the industry and will make sure your treatment proceeds without any complications.
Your skin will never have felt more soft and subtle than it does after receiving Dermaplaning. In addition to clearing out the dead skin cells, it removes that pesky “peach fuzz” hair that clogs up your makeup application. Your makeup will look its best with a clear face on which to apply it.
Another additional benefit of derma planing is that vellus hair (peach fuzz) can hold sweat and oil, clogging pores. So removal of this vellus hair can help with clogging. It also causes the skin cells to renew which can give you that younger and glowy look that everyone wants. The dead skin cells that are laying on top can make the skin look dull as well. So by removing those skin cells your face will be renewed giving you a youthful glow!
A myth about dermaplaning is that vellus hair will grow thicker and darker. This is false:the color will remain the same and it will not grow back any thicker then once before. Removing of dead skin cells encourages skin-cell turnover and new growth, which can even out skin tone. Reducing signs of aging, like dark spots and wrinkles.
Dermaplaning is one of the easiest to perform cosmetic treatments we offer, making sure your busy days are never interrupted. Most Dermaplaning procedures only take around half an hour, letting you get your treatment during your lunch break from work. While most patients will not experience any side effects, some may be sensitive to sunlight afterward; for this reason, we recommend wearing sunscreen for the remainder of the day. Dermaplaning can be administered multiple times to keep up the results, with a recommended 21 days minimum between each session.
