Vellus hairs on the face, often referred to as peach fuzz, can make applying makeup and skin care products a task! It can also trap excess oils and bacteria, rendering our skin care routine less effective and causing our skin texture and tone to appear uneven. At Perfect Skin Med Spa in Houston, TX we offer Dermaplaning to combat these concerns.
Dermaplaning is a safe, chemical free, effective exfoliating treatment that removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the surface of the skin. The removal of the dead skin cells evens out the skin’s texture and leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother.
How does Dermaplaning work in Houston?
Dermaplaning is an effective, pain free procedure. Patients often describe the treatment as the sensation felt while shaving. The procedure is fast, typically lasting thirty to forty minutes and is performed with a sterile medical grade scalpel that gently removes any dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the surface of the skin.
Our medical aesthetician will begin the procedure by cleansing and thoroughly drying the skin. The skin will then be held with one hand, while the aesthetician uses the other hand to gently glide a sterile scalpel on the targeted area applying short, quick strokes scrapping off any dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The results are immediate revealing a brighter, softer and even complexion.

What is recovery like?
Dermaplaning requires no downtime and carries no risk. In turn, this makes Dermaplaning an excellent choice for a wide variety of patients. The procedure takes an average of 30 to 40 minutes, allowing it to be performed during a lunch break. Redness on the surface of the skin may occur although it is rare. Results of a smoother, brighter complexion are immediate, lasting up to a month. Although avoiding sun exposure is not necessary, we do recommend applying sun protection, as skin that has been exfoliated is susceptible to sun damage.

The procedure is known as “manual exfoliation” because it involves a simple physical method instead of chemicals to exfoliate the skin.
Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of the skin or the entire face. Following the treatment, your skin will reflect a natural glow, and it will look and feel smoother, more supple and super vibrant. It will also be easier for the skin to absorb topical products like creams and serums, so the benefits increase with time.
