Dermaplaning has become one of the most popular treatments currently available. The procedure uses a surgical-grade, sterile scalpel to carefully scrape the fine hairs and outer layer of skin on your face. The result is smooth, even and clear skin completely free of hair. There is no downtime, and dermaplaning can transform the look and feel of your skin. A ten gauge scalpel is applied at an angle of 45 degrees to exfoliate the peach fuzz and dead skin on your face. This type of hair is often missed by a laser treatment because it is too fine. This is an excellent option for rejuvenating your skin for a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Dermaplaning is appropriate for every skin type, including individuals with acne. It is important to note the myth stating the hair will grow back coarser and darker is not true. Once the peach fuzz and impurity buildup have been eliminated, your base for applying cosmetics will improve and your skincare products will be able to penetrate your skin much more effectively. This is especially true for about a week after you have had this procedure. This is the time to use skincare products like moisturizers and hydrating serums.
It is important to understand any resurfacing procedure will intensify the potential damage from the sun. You should be using a high quality sunscreen to make certain your skin is protected from the sun. This is highly recommended with or without a resurfacing treatment.
The Benefits of Dermaplaning
The treatment offers you a lot of benefits for your skin. This includes:
• The soft hair on your face responsible for trapping oils and dirt is removed
• The look of fine lines is diminished
• The treatment leaves you with smoother skin
• The results are immediate
• Skincare products will penetrate your skin more easily
• The treatment is safe for the removal of peach fuzz and dead skin cells
• There is no downtime
• The treatment is safe and effective for almost any type of skin
• The appearance of acne scars is reduced
Most individuals choose to have a dermaplaning session every few weeks. This enables your skin to complete your natural rejuvenation cycle. The procedure removes the dead skin on your face. In some cases, there is a slight peeling of the skin after a treatment. This occurs when the treatments were scheduled too close together, and the growth cycle of your hair was incomplete. This is the reason you should not have a treatment more often than every few weeks. Dermaplaning only targets the peach fuzz. This means when your hair does grow back, the color and size will remain the same.
