Refresh your skin and remove “peach fuzz” on your face in Chicago
Dermaplaning is a physical (rather than chemical) procedure that uses a surgical grade blade to gently yet deeply shave and exfoliate away the top layer of skin. It also removes vellus hair known as “peach fuzz,” resulting in the layer of softer, younger skin being revealed. An added benefit to dermaplaning is improved skin absorption of your skincare products.
What will a Dermaplaning treatment Do?
The treatment is designed to safely remove the top layer of skin to reveal the softer skin beneath. It also removes vellus hair and evens out your skin tone.
How does a Dermaplaning treatment work?
To start the process, our esthetician Sara will thoroughly cleanse and then dry your face. She will then take a surgical grade blade and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells while holding the treatment area taut.
What areas can be treated?
Dermaplaning is a very simple shaving process specifically for the face.
How many treatments will I need?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
How long will it take to recover?
There is little to no recovery time required after this treatment. Your skin will however be very sensitive to sunlight and possibly pink or red, so sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is highly recommended after treatment.
How do I care for my skin after the treatment?
After you have been treated, it is important to avoid direct sunlight exposure for up to three days. Avoid swimming in chlorinated water for at least 24 hours, and ensure that you are using a very gentle facial cleanser and moisturizer. Do not use and exfoliating products on skin for one to two weeks.
