DERMAPLANING REVEALS A DEWY GLOWING SKIN
Dermaplaning is one of those Instant Gratification Treatments. It is a simple and safe way of exfoliating the epidermis. It is a quick non-invasive treatment for those who want a Deep Exfoliation. It is also a first choice for those who have excess vellus hair on the skin. Dermaplaning carefully removes the dead skin cells and facial hair from the epidermis. The hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the individual healthier smooth looking skin. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products after waiting at least two for the skin to breathe after treatment and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acne skin. If you have deep acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. Always discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
Dermaplaning’s purpose is to give your skin an immediate exfoliation for a luminous glow. The benefits are dewy skin, faster cell turnover, smoother texture, reduces visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and exfoliates pores. It safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz.
It is not recommended to preform any kind of facial treatments or apply skin products before and after Dermaplaning especially if you have sensitive skin or suffer from breakouts.
A Dermaplaning treatment exfoliates the skin which opens the pores and by putting products back into the skin suffocates the open skin pores and defeats the who purpose of a Dermaplaning treatment. It is recommended to leave the skin free of anything the day of treatment and the day after.
There are no side effects, zero downtime and painless. After the treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure and may look a little pink. You will want to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
Many are concerned that their hair will grow back heavier and darker after Dermaplaning. This is not the case. Fine facial “peach fuzz” is one of the two types of hair that everyone has. It’s called vellus hair and is the fine translucent hair that you can see if you look closely on the face. The other type of hair is terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head. Because vellus hair is so fine and different from terminal hair, cutting it does not make it grow back thicker. “Merely an Old Wives Tale.”
The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days and since Dermaplaning removes about two to three weeks worth of dead skin cells, it’s best to wait about three to four weeks between treatments.
