Dermaplaning – Fall River

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment which removes dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple, and vibrant.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).

Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects making it a perfect treatment for those who have sensitive skin, who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that chemicals will be absorbed into the bloodstream. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are not often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
