Your skin is everything. Dermaplaning is one of a few ways to take care of your skin the way it deserves. Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an effective manual exfoliating treatment that uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and along with the peach fuzz on your face.
Dermaplaning is a favorite in the cosmetic industry because it is a quick procedure with no adverse effect and enables a greater penetration of your skin care products. Cosmetic dermatologists also use dermaplaning to help prepare the skin for more intrusive treatments such as laser and chemical peels.
Dermaplaning is recommended for most skin types except for individuals with acne. For individuals with deep cystic acne conditions, it’s important to wait until breakouts are completely clear. It’s critical to discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before the beginning of the treatments to prevent any complications. If you are pregnant or nursing and want a strong exfoliation without risking any penetration of harsh chemicals, or to keep your baby safe, dermaplaning is a great option.
What to Expect
Unlike other treatments that can be potentially uncomfortable, dermaplaning is painless.
The entire procedure will last about 15-20 minutes. Before the procedure, the aesthetician will apply a cleanser and alpha-hydroxy acid to rid your skin of any dirt and loosen the dead skin.
At a 45-degree angle, the aesthetician will use short and quick strokes to softly scrape off dead skin and remove any possible peach fuzz. Once the treatment is completed, your skin will be moisturized and analyzed to ensure maximum results.
There are no side effects of dermaplaning or any recovery time. It is important to consider that after the treatment, your skin may be very sensitive to sun exposure. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to reduce any risk of hyperpigmentation.
To maximize results for your skin, following the dermaplaning treatment, you may want to schedule a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing. In its own ways, dermaplaning will create beautiful results for your skin and will enable your skin to readily absorb skincare products and moisturizers. Yet, should you wish to continue this glow and effect, you may want to enhance your skin by scheduling other related services.
