Dermaplaning in Nairobi

You might have come across people on Instagram having their faces shaved using small razors to exfoliate their skin and wondered, “What is that?”

It’s called dermaplaning and it involves scraping your face with a scalpel to remove the epidermis and small hairs also known as “peach fuzz”.

The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when it’s performed by a certified dermatologist.

This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient. The most difficult part may be finding a trained provider who can administer the treatment professionally. 

Dermatologists say the treatment is effective for people looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright, but results typically only last two weeks. It’s not suitable for people with acne, eczema, keloids or warts.

The benefits include: 

  •        Skin exfoliation
  •         Unwanted vellus hair (peach fuzz) removal
  •        Skin cell regeneration
  •       Smoother, healthier skin
  •         Improved appearance of acne scarring
  •       Reduced hyper-pigmentation
  •       Elimination of excess oils and dirt
  •         Little to no downtime after the procedure
  •         Pairs well with other skin therapy treatments
