Have you ever looked at the stars on television, movies or magazines and wondered, “How do they get that flawless-looking skin?” Many of us outside of Hollywood’s walls have wondered the same thing. In many cases, the answer is a procedure known as dermaplaning. Though just recently booming in popularity and taking the cosmetic world by storm, it has been in use for quite a long time.
Serving as a longstanding tradition in Indian culture, this procedure is thought to have been advocated by the original queen herself, Cleopatra. In this highly popular cosmetic procedure, a sterile surgical-grade scalpel carefully removes the outermost layer of skin and fine hairs from the face. While it sounds startling at first, the procedure is safe and very easy to undergo.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning is a simple, convenient procedure that is very similar to shaving. You can expect to feel a sensation like you would if you are shaving your legs, except it is done on your face. Our professional will thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin. From there, the expert will gently stretch out an area of your skin while holding a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle in the other. The professional will gracefully and quickly make strokes to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
What are the Benefits?
There are many benefits to dermaplaning. Some of these include the fact that it’s used on nearly all skin types and works as a great way to prepare for other cosmetic procedures. These benefits make this procedure a favorite in the entertainment industry, especially with models and actresses.
Along with deep exfoliation, the treatment also eliminates that unwanted peach fuzz that gets highlighted in makeup and enhanced by intense lighting and high-definition cameras. The technical term for this hair is vellus hair, and it is very distinct. It is not as thick, dark, or coarse as the hair that grows on your head, body, or pubic regions, nor does it grow back stubbly. That means it is easy to miss during hair removal procedures like trimming or waxing. But it won’t get missed with dermaplaning.
Check out this list of some of the great benefits of this procedure:
- Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Primes skin for other procedures
- Creates a healthier, more radiant facial appearance
- No set recovery time
- Increases your skin’s elasticity
- Stimulates circulation
- Decreases uneven skin pigmentation
- Easily removes peach fuzz
- Smooths the skin’s texture
- Can work with other treatments for even better results
- Great for nearly all skin types and tones
- Will not aggravate telangiectasia (broken capillaries)
- Helps reduce blackheads and enlarged pores
- Minimal risk of post-procedure breakouts
How Does It Feel Afterward?
Dermaplaning will leave your skin feeling smooth after those dead skin cells are removed, and it clears away facial hair without the use of any harsh chemicals or waxing. Be amazed as you see better effects from skin treatments and products and effortlessly put on your makeup.
Is It Right for Me?
You might wonder if this procedure is right for you. Consider these factors about dermaplaning:
Eliminates Dead Skin Cells
After treatment, your skin will be softer and have more of that glamorous look. Unlike other treatment options out there, it won’t damage your skin.
One of the procedure’s biggest upsides is the lack of downtime, unlike other cosmetic procedures. The procedure is very much like shaving, which requires no recovery period.
When compared with other treatments, this treatment delivers better results. Not only will it provide a deep exfoliation, but it also removes those pesky fine hairs.
The treatment will make your skin look younger and allow you to apply makeup easier, adding to your skin’s glamorous glow.
Improved Overall Skin Health
Dermaplaning also stimulates the production of fresh, new skin cells while helping your skin’s pores to receive oxygen and vital nutrients. Active ingredients in skin care products can better penetrate the deeper layers, resulting in overall healthier skin.
