If you are looking to get rid of dead skin or the “peach fuzz” on your face, dermaplaning can eradicate unhealthy skin cells and thin hairs and provide you with a more rejuvenated appearance. A dermaplaning in Vancouver will make your skin look smoother and brighter.
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure involving a sharp tool that exfoliates the surface of your skin and removes small hairs. A surgical scalpel is sterilized before it gently shaves the skin and removes the top-most layer of dead skin and the vellus hair, known as peach fuzz.
Also known as micro planing or blading, dermaplaning is only performed on the face with some exceptions such as the nose or terminal hairs on the eyebrows. It can remove fine wrinkles, deep acne scars, and uneven pockmarks on your face and provide a smoother and more radiant appearance. Dermaplaning can treat different skin conditions, including blemishes, discoloration, and scarring from acne. Dermaplaning can be performed on any skin type for many conditions:
Men tend to look younger than their age in part because they shave regularly. Shaving is important because it exfoliates your skin by removing dead cells.

If you are looking to get rid of unwanted or excessive facial hair, you are a good candidate for dermaplaning. This procedure is especially great for pregnant women or anyone unable to use exfoliating products. However, dermaplaning should be avoided for anyone with heavy acne or cyst bumps, or currently taking retinoid treatments.
Being a simple procedure means there is little to no recovery time with dermaplaning. Vancouver dermaplaning patients may have minimal swelling or see some redness on your skin for a couple of days. For the first 24 hours, make sure to avoid hot tubs or saunas, any conditions that can lead to excessive perspiration, as well as exfoliating applications, retinol, and benzoyl peroxide. You will want to wear proper sunscreen and a high SPF to protect your bare skin from UV rays, which can reverse the effects of the procedure or create pigment blotches on your uncovered skin cells.
