From the Office of Dr. Janet Neigel
Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. Dermaplaning (blading) is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. Dermaplaning is effective in smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, evening skin tone and reducing acne scarring.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is Dermaplaning performed?
The skin is held taut; then, a sterile 10-gauge blade is stroked across the skin at a 45-degree angle while exfoliating dry skin cells and vellus hair.
Is this service safe?
This treatment is extremely safe when performed by our experienced Medical Aesthetician Ally.
Will the vellus hair grow back thicker?
No. It is physiologically impossible for vellus hair, also known as peach-fuzz, to grow back thicker. Vellus hair when cut or removed will grow back the same as it was prior to treatment.
Can Dermaplaning be performed with laser treatments or chemical peels?
Absolutely, it is often recommended as a complementary procedure.
How often can this procedure be performed?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells. It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next Dermaplaning treatment. It is recommended to have dermaplaning done once a month for 6 months to see optimal results.
