What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning facial is a type of closed exfoliation treatment, which is performed using a sterilized stainless-steel scalpel. This treatment is great at removing layers of dead cells from the surface of the skin, which removes any peach fuzz, combats dull uneven skin tone, and helps active ingredients from serums and creams to penetrate deeper into the skin, achieving maximum results.
This is a perfect treatment for those who are looking to achieve a smooth glowing complexion without the use of lasers or harsher chemicals at a lower cost. Dermaplaning is also a great follow-up procedure after chemical peels, which can cause tightness and unwanted dry patches. The scalpel takes off all of the dead cells, opens up the pores, and helps to speed up the recovery process. Dermaplaning can provide even better results when paired with other hydrating and rejuvenating treatments.
The process is completely painless and there is no recovery process. Patients require no downtime after the treatment but should expect some redness immediately after the procedure. It is highly recommended to apply daily full spectrum SPF, following the procedure, as your skin would be more sensitive to sun damage.
It is a non-invasive treatment, which is suitable for most skin types, however, it is not recommended for those suffering from active acne and rosacea since it can cause some irritation.
Does the hair grow back thicker and darker?
This is a common question among those who are new to Dermaplaning. The answer is no! The hair you have on your face will grow out the same exact way and will look completely normal after two or three days after the treatment.
Benefits of Dermaplaning:
Aside from deep exfoliation, you can expect better makeup application and wear, due to the absence of dry patches and peach fuzz. Dermaplaning is also associated with better absorption of skincare products and boosting the natural glow of your skin.
