Dermaplaning in Greenville, rhode island

Dermaplaning leaves you with brighter, smoother and glowing skin by scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and excess oils with a surgical scalpel blade.  Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes a straight-edge surgical blade or scalpel at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the surface of the skin and remove unwanted vellus hair from the epidermis. We also refer to it as “Epidermal Leveling”.

Dermaplaning provides several benefits. By removing keratinized cellular buildup, we can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surface discolorations, and restoring a youthful glow to the skin. An added benefit of removing dead cellular buildup from the surface of the skin is enhanced daily care product and professional treatment penetration. With vellus hair and dead skin cells gone, chemical peels and other professional products being used will be able to absorb more evenly and deeply. When products penetrate better, you will achieve quicker results.  

It is also beneficial in controlling minor breakouts by removing vellus hair that can hold onto oil and debris.   After dermaplaning you will likely notice that your makeup will apply more smoothly and evenly for glowing skin. The skin looks and feels immediately smoother and brighter!  


Benefits of dermaplaning may include:

Evening out the skin’s tone;
Giving the skin a “fresh glow,” with less “peach fuzz”;
Removing excess oil from the face
Reducing the appearance of blemishes;
Helping the skin absorb products more easily; and
Smoothing the skin’s texture.

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure. It does not cause hair to grow back darker or thicker.
