Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to leave the skin smooth and revitalized. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands of an experienced, licensed esthetician.
Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry among models and actresses. It eliminates annoying peach fuzz and dead skin cells that cake up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras.
Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair (that’s the science-y name for clear or white soft fine facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment.
Microdermabrasion treatments exfoliate the top layer of your skin, removing unwanted dead cells and debris. At About Face, we achieve the best results with the use of a powerful, specialized, medical microdermabrasion machine. The machine removes dry and dead skin cells and unclogs your pores.
With regular treatments, the simultaneous motions of micro-abrasion and micro-circulatory stimulation can aid in rebuilding collagen in the skin.
A microdermabrasion facial every 4 to 6 weeks is ideal to keep your skin performing optimally 24/7.
