Shanti's Studio offers a wide range of resurfacing treatments, from light exfoliating with no recovery time to a more aggressive approach with a limited recovery time to several days.  

Get the glow of a celebrity without doing an invasive procedure!  NO recovery time necessary!

 

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive form of manual exfoliation that resurfaces dehydrated, dull, and aging skin.  With extensive

training, we use a specialized blade to gently remove dead skin cells.  The treatment may be performed every 3-4 weeks.

 

BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING

  • Decongested pores

  • Brighter, more even skin tone

  • Enhanced product penetration

  • Temporary removal of vellus hair (peach fuzz)

  • Generation of healthy new skin cells

  • Further optimized results from other skincare services

  • Improved skin texture, including reduction to the appearance of fine lines and acne scars

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

There is no pain associated with dermaplaning. It is a non-invasive treatment removing only the outermost layers of the epidermis. Since products will penetrate more easily, we recommend following a gentle skincare regimen post treatment. There is no downtime after dermaplaning. In fact, we recommend that you schedule a treatment prior to a big event due to the refreshed appearance of your skin and smooth application of makeup.

The vellus hair that is removed is the fine, translucent hair that you find on your cheeks, jaw and neck. When vellus hair is cut, the structure of the hair does not become damaged, therefore it is impossible for it to grow back thicker (a common misconception). 

Coarse, terminal hairs must be removed with tweezers, wax or laser hair removal.  You may book your waxing service at the same time as your dermaplaning appointment.

 

IDEAL CANDIDATE

The ideal candidate is one with relatively clear skin, fine lines, or moderate acne scarring.  If you have severe or cystic acne, extremely sensitive skin, a bleeding disorder, active cold sores, or are taking blood thinners, we do not recommend dermaplaning.

  • For darker skin tones, prepping the skin 2-3 weeks pre-treatment with brightening home care products and sunscreen is essential to reduce post inflammatory hyperpigmentation

  • Wait 14 days after receiving a chemical peel or laser treatment

  • Discontinue Retin-A for 5 days before dermaplaning treatment​

SCARED?  DON'T BE!!

"The concept of having someone take a blade and scrape skin off your face - it sounds like it could be scary or dangerous.  I think with the wrong person - that could be the case.  I have all the faith in the world that Shanti would take the best care of me, and knowing what a perfectionist she is - I wasn’t worried at all.  Communication is super important during the service. Shanti tells you exactly what is going on and, of course, if I had an itch or needed to move, I let her know first. :).  It was pretty quick, no down time.  Very simple, and I like the added bonus of removing all the little baby hairs from the face too.  In the next several days after - I used less product on my face; it seemed to absorb much quicker.   I also needed less foundation - the skin overall is more consistent in color. 

 

Overall my main concern is reducing the look of wrinkles and improving the tone of my skin.  Starting right after the treatment, and now a couple weeks later, my skin still looks better, wrinkles look less and my overall texture and tone of the skin is improved."

COUNTER-INDICATIONS INCLUDE CLIENTS WHO:

• Are nursing or pregnant

• Have taken Accutane in the last six months

• Have psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, or rosacea

HOME CARE

 

Home care is an integral component of desired success.  The retinoid and alpha hydroxyl acids that are recommended for home use will help the skin readily accept the peeling solution.  Once the peel is complete, the home products penetrate evenly and more effectively.  In addition, sunscreen is part of the daily home-care routine.
