The popularity of dermaplaning has exploded over the last several years, and it’s not hard to see why. As a non-invasive procedure that can be performed quickly and provides immediately visible benefits, dermaplaning is a fast and simple way to instantly improve your appearance.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning involves using a medical blade to painlessly exfoliate facial skin, gently remove hair, and clear away the upper layer of dermis that holds on to dead skin cells, dirt, and oil.
Dermaplaning is appropriate for all skin types and can be done as a standalone service or it can be added on to a facial or chemical peel. It should always be performed by a licensed professional.
BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING
Instant improvements in overall skin brightness and texture and the removal of dead skin cells and unwanted hair are just a few of the benefits of dermaplaning treatments.
When performed before other skincare treatments, such as facials or chemical peels, it preps the surface of the skin for more intense product penetration, leading to better results, particularly for patients with acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
Other benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Creates a smooth base for makeup application
- Clears out clogged pores
- Helps prevent breakouts
- Promotes better absorption of skin care products
- Stimulates cellular turnover
Plus, there is no recovery or “downtime” after dermaplaning. Some patients come in for their dermaplaning treatments during their lunch breaks and go right back to work afterward.
You may have heard that dermaplaning can cause hair to grow back thicker and darker. This is nothing more than a myth.
AFTER YOUR DERMAPLANING TREATMENT
You may experience a little bit of light redness after dermaplaning. This is normal and nothing to worry about.
After your dermaplaning is a great time to apply good quality skin care products, such as hyaluronic acid or a deep moisturizer, as it will sink more deeply into the surface of your skin.
We recommend that you wait until the day after your procedure to start wearing makeup again. This gives your newly exfoliated skin a chance to breathe. Many patients notice that their foundation goes on much easier following dermaplaning, thanks to the improvements in skin texture.
Sunblock is a must in order to protect your freshly exfoliated skin and prevent new sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
