Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals or the controversy of breathing in the crystals into your lunges. A stainless steel sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently shave off dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface. It is an effective, non-invasive exfoliation treatment that allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone. Dermaplaning can be an effective treatment for clients that have couperose, sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of chemical exfoliation.
*I have thoroughly completed the client intake form to the best of my knowledge
*I acknowledge I may experience redness, excessive dryness, or even some peeling after treatment.
*I acknowledge Dermaplaning may cause minor superficial abrasions which may not appear until a day or two following treatment.

*I acknowledge I have not been using Accutane for the last six months.
*I acknowledge I have not been using Retin A or Renovea for the past two weeks.
*The majority of clients receive noticeable, satisfactory to above average results, I acknowledge that such results are not guaranteed.
*I acknowledge that aerobic exercise or vigorous physical activity should be avoided until all redness has subsided.
