What if you could offer your clients a simple, painless treatment that instantly gave them smooth, glowing, brighter skin? You can – with dermaplaning!

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to shave/scrape the first layer of dead skin off, along with the vellus hair. Dermplaning originated in Japanese culture, from the kao sori (shaved face) treatment, where silky, porcelain skin is a beauty necessity.

Benefits of Dermplaning
For being a fairly simple procedure dermaplaning provides clients with many short and long term benefits. They will see instant improvements in skin texture and tone and over time they can expect to see less wrinkles and reduced dark spots and acne scarring. It will make for smoother makeup application and help keep oil/cosmetics from getting trapped in follicles and causing acne and skin imperfections.

Added Exfoliation, Maximum Results
Shaving is a great way to exfoliate, which removes dead, dull skin, revealing brighter, healthier skin underneath. Exfoliation is key to getting the most out of skin treatments, and helping skin absorb products and lotions. Dermaplaning will maximize results of masks, facials and peels.

Does Hair Grow Back Darker/Thicker?
Clients need not be worried that shaving their face will result in thicker/darker hair growing back. Vellus hair is different in the sense that once removed it will always continue to grow back at the same length, thickness and lightness as before.

Painless
Dermaplaning is one of the few hair removal treatments that is pain free. This gentle procedure is perfect for clients with sensitive skin. It’s also a great alternative to more aggressive hair removal treatments like waxing or threading.

Can Clients Do it Themselves?
Although it seems like a relatively simple procedure dermaplaning (shaving) should be left to a trained professional. Professional quality blades are used, which are superior to store bought razors. Navigating the planes of a face is more complex than it sounds, especially around the forehead, upper lip and cheekbones. Leaving dermaplaning to a trained professional will help to avoid nicks, cuts and lopsided eyebrows.
