Smoother, brighter, and glowing skin can be yours with a simple cosmetic procedure called dermaplaning. This gentle, exfoliation procedure removes the top layers of dead skin cells and vellus hairs, or peach fuzz, on your face. You may not be aware of it, but even now, your face has layers of dead skin cells that are contributing to a variety of skin conditions.
Fine wrinkles, dull-looking skin, and acne breakouts can be caused by these layers of debris piled on your face. The fine little vellus hairs may become more pronounced when you add makeup. All these conditions can cause you to look older. At Faces Medspa in Dubuque, we reverse the process by revealing the smooth, new skin beneath the dead skin cells with dermaplaning.

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skin treatment, also called microplaning or blading. A tool similar to a razor is used to gently scrape off the layers of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This procedure removes dull, dry skin and scrapes away layers of sun-damaged skin. It can also reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and acne scars. The short, soft vellus hairs on the face are also removed with this procedure.
Safe and Effective Exfoliation
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. This painless procedure is a safe and effective method for removing the surface layers of skin that can dull your appearance. Underneath the dead skin cells is fresh, new skin that produces a healthy glow and a smoothness you will love.
Your foundation will glide on smoother, and skincare products will work more effectively once those top layers of dead skin are gone. As a result, you will have a more beautiful, youthful, glowing appearance.
The Dermaplaning Procedure
Scraping your face with a scalpel-like tool may sound discomforting; however, for most people, it is a painless treatment. A dermaplaning tool is used to scrape your skin at a 45-degree angle. The skin is gently scraped removing facial hair, layers of dead skin cells, and debris from acne and environmental factors. The procedure is usually completed in 15 minutes or less.
You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment, but you should not feel any pain. After the procedure, a skin-soothing product like aloe will be applied to your face.
