When performed by a trained Licensed Aesthetician, it is extremely safe. There is no more risk to the skin than when a woman shaves her legs. Our Licensed Aesthetician's are trained, so our treatments are safe using proper technique..
At Arabella's Total Skin Care we use Dermaplaning to remove the outer most layers of dead skin cells and vellous hair(peach fuzz) leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant.
DERMAPLANING (blading) is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. It is an intensive facial skin treatment used to improve fine lines, crow's feet, splotchy pigmentation, sun damage, age spots, pre-cancerous lesions on the skin.
How is Dermaplaning performed?
It is safely performed by using a #10R or #10D blade (yes, a sterile surgical blade). The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving. However, the Aesthetician is doing the stroking while holding the area of skin taut.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes, it is safe for all skin types.
What areas of the skin can be treated?
Dermaplaning the is performed on the face and Neck . We do not blade the eye lids or the chest.
What skin types/conditions can NOT be treated?
Most skin types can benefit from Dermaplaning, it is not recommend for those with active acne, raised moles or any raised lesions. Our Aesthetician's will take you through a complete skin analysis during your initial consultation.
