Over time, dead skin cells can build up on the face and make your skin look older and dull. Removing these dead cells is sometimes harder than it sounds. Dermaplaning is a method of revealing a fresh, healthy layer of skin. The result is a rejuvenated, revitalized, younger-looking you!
What is Dermaplaning?
The top layer of skin is gently scraped off using a scalpel during this treatment. This is a safe process and in fact has been a very popular treatment in Hollywood for models and actresses for quite some time. This is because it helps remove not only dead skin cells but fine hairs as well. Dermaplaning reveals an incredibly smooth layer of skin that is perfect for applying makeup to or simply showing off!
What to Expect with Dermaplaning
This straightforward treatment can typically be completed in just 30 minutes. Some people have compared the sensation to shaving their legs, except on the face. After cleaning and drying your skin, it will be held taut and then gently scraped with the scalpel. With this technique, the peach fuzz on the face that is too fine for lasers to catch can be removed. After your treatment, there is zero downtime. There are also no known side effects with this treatment.
Dermaplaning can remove days’ worth of dead skin cells. This treatment can be repeated as needed, but you should wait at least that long in between appointments. Some people choose to incorporate Dermaplaning into their skincare routine once a month or so, while others just have it done before a major event.
Who Should Consider Dermaplaning?
This treatment is considered safe for all skin types and tones. The only people who will want to explore other options are those with cystic acne. If you do have cystic acne, you will want to wait for it to clear before having Dermaplaning treatments. Be sure to mention any skin allergies and sensitivity at your consultation. When considering this treatment, keep in mind the following benefits:
- It helps makeup go on smoother
- Appointments can be done as needed
- It removes the fine hair that other treatments leave behind
- The fine hair does not grow back thicker or darker
- Acne scars can be lightened considerably
- Cell turnover is encouraged gently
