What Is Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective skin treatment, which helps to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead and dry skin cells along with fine hair on you face.
Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and could be performed for pregnant and nursing mothers. It is performed by using a sterile 10 blade scalpel with a curved point. The blade is used to clean the skin on your forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, and neck.
What Does Dermaplaning Do For Your Skin?
Dermaplaning procedure helps to remove all the dead skin cells and facial hair, which leaves your face feeling silky smooth. Dermaplaning procedure could be done before other procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. It helps to prepare your skin and improve penetration of skin care products. This procedure also benefits your skin by making it smooth for makeup application.
What Is Good For?
Dermaplaning is a form of physical exfoliation that clears the skin and might trigger regeneration of new cells. It helps to improve your skin texture and tone, increase cell turnover, decrease fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots, reduce acne scars and pigmentation. Dermaplaning procedure could be performed on all skin types and colors. It is also safe for pregnant mothers and people with sensitive skin or allergies to chemical exfoliants and peels. Dermaplaning is effective for people with dry and rough skin, with mature and uneven skin tone.
Dermaplaning should not be done on people with cystic acne or anyone with thick, dark facial hair.
How Is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is a quick, painless procedure with immediate results. It takes less then 30 minutes to perform and has absolutely no downtime. First, a licensed aesthetician trained to perform dermaplaning, will cleanse and dry your skin. Next, she will pull the skin taut and will use a sterile blade at a 45 degree angle, in swiping, upward motion to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz. If done correctly this treatment has no side effects and no downtime.
How Often Dermaplaning Needs To Be Done?
Dermaplaning could be done every 4 to 6 weeks depending on your skin texture. You need to allow time for your skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle, before performing another treatment. Right after the treatment your skin may look mildly pink and be sensitive to sun light. You would need to avoid sunlight for a few days and use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF higher than 30. Dermaplaning will help you to have a more even skin tone and texture and make your face look more radiant.
How To Do it At Home?
Don’t try to do dermaplaning at home. Even though it looks like it is easy to do by yourself, dermaplaning requires a knowledge of a skilled technique and a special training to perform it safely and correctly. A licensed aesthetician performing this procedure is trained to use short strokes at a specific angle and in particular patterns on different face regions. If not performed correctly, dermaplaning could cause scarring, bruising, infection, cuts and injury to the skin.
