Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning quickly and effectively removes the upper epidermis with a fine medical blade, delivering superficial skin resurfacing and improving skin texture and appearance. The skilled specialists at Kucumber Skin Lounge execute Dermaplaning for discreet, zero-downtime improvements to dryness, acne, congested pores, dullness and fine lines. The blade’s action stimulates collagen production, subtly improving skin thickness and the appearance of fine wrinkles. Refine your look with one Dermaplaning treatment on your face or body for:

  • Skin resurfacing
  • Dry skin
  • “Peach Fuzz”
  • Skin discoloration
  • Scarring
  • Collagen stimulation
  • Congestion
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

TREATMENT

Your Kucumber specialist exfoliates the top layer of dry skin by drawing a medical blade across the surface, using precise angles and motions. Along with the upper layers of dry and damaged skin, Dermaplaning removes the fine vellus hairs of the face and body (“peach fuzz”). Your skin is left noticeably smooth and rejuvenated. If you desire more pronounced effects, Dermaplaning can prepare the skin for deeper penetration of serums and moisturizers during an additional treatment such as a facial.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Your skin will feel smooth and soft, ready for a night out. Congestion will be minimized or nonexistent. Because only the surface layers of the skin are impacted, there is generally no downtown or negative cosmetic effect.

The benefits of Dermaplaning will last until the hair and skin re-grow. Timing varies for each individual, but typical results last at least 7 days. Combining Dermaplaning with a facial or home skincare routine can extend the duration of the positive effect.

Executed with precision by your Kucumber specialist, Dermaplaning delivers immediate and excellent results for your skin. It smooths the way for you to feel more beautiful in just one treatment.
