We are here to explain how to get baby smooth texture and appearance, thank us later!
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that removes the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is done with a sterile scalpel by gently scraping your skin resulting in a healthier, brighter, and smoother complexion.
WILL THE HAIR GROW BACK THICKER AND DARKER?
Women grow hair on their faces too, its just part of life. We often get asked if the hair will grow back thicker and darker afterwards, and the answer is absolutely not! We would have some very angry ladies if that were the case. It is actually physiologically impossible - the soft vellus hair will grow back slowly and will be the same thickness and color as it always has been.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?
We don’t find ourselves turning people down very often for this particular treatment, but in some cases we don’t always suggest it. People with oily, acne-prone skin should shy away from Dermaplaning because the razor can actually break the skin where there is cystic acne and/or breakouts. This can cause the condition to get worse and lead to more breakouts. We also do not recommend this treatment if you are very sensitive or are using prescription strength Retinoids or on Accutane.
Anyone with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and acne-scarring is an ideal client for Dermaplaning. Mature and aging skin types with fine lines and/or wrinkles will also benefit from this!
This physical exfoliation is especially safe for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers who cannot get chemical peels.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET THIS SERVICE DONE?
We suggest getting the Dermaplaning treatment done every 4 weeks or so. During the next 3 weeks after the treatment, your skin continues to generate new skin cells and collagen. Doing the treatment too soon can actually counteract all of the good that the treatment had to offer. The skin needs time to heal for optimal results!
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?
Good news! There is no down time at all. There is no particular recovery regimen, besides taking precautions to stay out of the sun of course!
HOW DO I SCHEDULE THIS SERVICE?
We have a few different options when it comes to this treatment!
Dermaplaning can be added onto any of our services here at The Face Foundry. For example; if you choose to get the Foundry Glow Facial, you can add the Dermaplaning Enhancement.
If you are looking for a facial on the fly, you can schedule one of our Mini Facials and then choose Dermaplaning during your consultation; your Esthetician will ask you to choose between a Custom Peel, Mask, or Dermaplaning!
Hydrafacial + Dermaplaning combination
Red Carpet ready in 40 minutes? Say no more! We begin with Dermaplaning for an extra level of rejuvenation; once the skin is peach-fuzz free, part II begins: the Hydrafacial.
The Hydrafacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in dewy glowy skin with no discomfort or downtime. It provides a powerful boost of hydration directly into the skin with peptides, hydrating ingredients and antioxidants that act as a skin barrier as well.
Aside from a little redness immediately post-procedure (this varies between each person), this is the perfect treatment for same-day events!
