NEW at Kabuki - Dermaplaning. What it is and why you need it.

Dermaplaning! At Kabuki we are so excited to be the only local spa to offer this incredible treatment for your skin!  If you have never heard about dermaplaning or you are uncertain about how it works, then this Q&A section is just for you! Dermaplaning has so many great benefits for your skin and is also perfect for those that have skin that is too sensitive for the suction associated with traditional microdermabrasion.

Here's how it works: Dermaplaning uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells and the very fine hair (peach fuzz).

  • Improves skin texture
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Brightens dull skin
  • Reduces pigment irregularities
  • Stimulates collagen production and skin tightness

Your skin is pulled tight while a sterile surgical blade is very gently scraped across the surface. This blade removes dead skin, and vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the face. This leaves the skin ultra smooth and bright. 

Will the hair on my face grow back darker or thicker?

No! It is impossible to change the structure of your hair follicle by manipulating the hair only on the surface. Your hair will gradually grow back exactly how it was before the treatment.

How often do I need to get this treatment done?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 4 weeks.

What do I need to do before and after my dermaplane treatment?

You must discontinue any exfoliating products including alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) serums, scrubs, retinol night creams and topical prescriptions (Triluma, Retin-A, Tretinoin etc…) for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days after your treatment. It is very important to apply sunscreen daily after this treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun’s damaging rays.
