For a quick treatment with no downtime, dermaplaning might be just what you need for smooth, glowing skin!
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that uses a medical grade surgical blade in short strokes at an angle to remove the very top layer of skin. This treatment removes both dead skin cells and the fine vellus hairs that are also known as ‘peach fuzz’, leaving the surface of the face ultra smooth. By stimulating the development of new skin cells, this type of exfoliation helps new skin rise to the surface. It leaves you with a more youthful and dewy face, but without any harsh chemicals, excessive downtime, or pain. A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built-up of dead skin cells and debris from your skin. Since the blade is being held at a precise angle and our experienced therapists use light, feathering strokes, there is no worry about piercing or scratching the skin.
The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin. There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker.
The first several days after treatment are the ideal time to focus on your highest-quality serums, moisturizers and other elements of your at-home skincare routine and you’ll notice your cosmetics will also go on much more easily once your face is clear of peach fuzz and dead skin cells. You’ll shave minutes off of your morning makeup routine, and your face will look better once it’s been made up. Have you ever noticed how fine facial hairs tend to stand up and out once you’ve applied foundation and powder? You won’t have to worry about the appearance of those little hairs after you’ve undergone this treatment.
If you’re undergoing acne treatment, or if you have acne scarring from previous outbreaks, dermaplaning can be especially helpful. Although this treatment isn’t recommended for anyone who has current, active breakouts, it can minimize the chance of future breakouts by cleaning your pores and getting rid of the dirt and oils that can sometimes become trapped in facial hair. This treatment can also ease some of the redness associated with past acne scars. And by clearing the face of hair and skin cells, it can improve the efficacy of acne medications.
Although the idea of having your face shaved with a scalpel may sound intimidating, the treatment is amazingly relaxing and enjoyable. This is a gentle treatment that involves no harsh chemicals and no tugging, pulling, or scratching on the skin. Dermaplaning is completely non-invasive, involves no downtime and is safe for all skin tones and types.
