Flawless offers facials and our specialty is Dermaplaning and Mircrocurrent facials. Dermaplaning has been called an “acid-free” peel. It is a safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is a highly efficient, safe, physical exfoliation procedure used to clear away dry, dead, superfluous skin layers. This clinical procedure is performed by medical skincare specialists who are trained in the use of a modified surgical blade designed specifically for this purpose. Results are immediate as it helps to diminish the appearance of dry fine lines that are evident on aging skin. Clients will notice healthier and more radiant appearance. Microcurrent is a low level of electricity that mirrors the body‘s own natural electrical currents, triggering chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, provide circulatory benefits, and re-educate the muscles of the face. The results are immediate people notice a firming, smoothing, and re-hydration of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Q & A
How is Dermaplaning performed?
- It is safely performed by using a #10 blade. The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving. However, the practitioner is doing the stroking while holding the area of skin taut.
Is this Treatment Safe?
- This treatment, when professionally trained, is extremely safe.
- There is no more risk to the skin than when a man shaves his face. As long as the practitioner has adequate training, the treatment should be very easy and quick.
If you are ‘blading” the skin on the face, won’t the hairs on the face grow back thicker?
- No. It is physiologically impossible for your vellous hairs to grow back thicker. True, once the hair is cut, it has a blunt edge. But this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
- All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning or blading, however, I would not recommend this treatment for those suffering from acne and an over production of the sebaceous gland.
- The oils from the sebaceous gland need to travel up and connect with the vellous hair. (Vellous hair does not have oil/sebaceous glands)
- If the hair is removed, then the oils tend to stay below where they are prone to mix with bacterial colonies, ultimately stimulating more acne.
Can dermaplaning cause the skin to bleed?
- Bleeding is a possibility because the treatment is performed with a sharp instrument. But the incidence of cutting into the skin is slim.
- It is only performed by someone who has had the proper training and practice.
- Not all practitioners know how to perform this treatment. That is why training is mandatory!
What areas of the skin can be treated?
- Blading the skin is performed on the face only.
- We do not blade the nose, eye lids, neck or chest.
How often is this procedure performed?
- Blading can be performed every 3 – 4 weeks.
- Blading the skin actually removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.
- We want the skin to complete it’s normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
