What Dermaplaning Can Do for Your Skin

Dermaplaning is probably a word you’ve been hearing floating around lately in terms of skin care. Your friends have all been raving about it. Maybe you heard that everyone is "shaving" their face now. Let’s talk about what dermaplaning really is, what it isn’t, and why you absolutely need it.

Proper medical-grade dermaplaning is done using a scalpel or a proper dermaplaning blade which is much like a scalpel blade. The skin is first thoroughly cleansed and dried. Your aesthetician will pull the skin taut and gently use the blade to scrape away your dead skin cells revealing baby soft, glowing skin.

The process of removing dead skin cells with a scalpel or dermaplaning blade also removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) in the process. This is a secondary benefit to the treatment, not the primary reason. You could simply shave your face with an at home, two blade razor and light layer of cleanser if your primary concern is ridding yourself of peach fuzz. However, the at home razors are not beneficial for removing dead skin the way a proper dermaplaning blade is.

Your skin will be ready for dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks as you accumulate more dead skin cells. Having this treatment regularly will ensure that your products penetrate the top layer of the dermis rather than be wasted on a layer of dead, dull skin. You will also notice that any makeup applied will go on more smoothly and naturally looking more like your own glowing skin rather than makeup.

Whether you have an event coming up, are looking to see better results with skin care products or just feel your skin has grown dull, this quick, no downtime instant gratification treatment will give you the end result you are looking for.
