WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DERMAPLANING AND MICRODERMABRASION?
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation treatment that uses a fine, sterile blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, is an abrasive treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff and polish the skin. Both treatments can leave your skin looking and feeling smoother, but dermaplaning provides more immediate results.
IS DERMAPLANING SAFE?
Yes, dermaplaning is a safe treatment for all skin types. The sterile blades used in the treatment are only ever used once, so there is no risk of infection or cross contamination. Dermaplaning is also a painless treatment with no side effects.
IS DERMAPLANING PAINFUL?
No, dermaplaning is not painful. You may feel a slight scratching sensation as the blade moves across your skin, but it should not be painful.
WILL DERMAPLANING MAKE MY SKIN BLEED?
No, dermaplaning will not make your skin bleed. The blades used in the treatment are very sharp, but they are also very thin. This means that they will not cut your skin, only remove the dead skin cells and vellus hair from the surface.
