Everything you need to know about Dermaplaning - The new way to exfoliate your face.
Dermaplaning is the hottest non-ablative facial procedure to hit the skin care world since, well, skin care. Everyone is doing it, from the Kardashians, famous beauty bloggers such as Huda Kuttan and Patrick Starr through to the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Gigi & Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Ashley Graham (Sign me up please!!) The purpose is to improve the appearance of things like acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines & wrinkles and the removal of vellus facial hair (aka Peach Fuzz). This deep exfoliation triggers new cell regeneration which ultimately results in smoother, more youthful, silkier skin and a healthy glow.
This incredibly effective facial treatment; provides long lasting and profound, immediate results without any downtime, and the good news is that almost everyone can have it done with the exception of those with active pustular acne – yes even whilst you are pregnant or breastfeeding! Added on to any facial or used as stand-alone treatment, dermaplaning is a fabulous treatment any time of year.
Here are 5 reasons you'll want to add dermaplaning to your skin care repertoire now:
1. Shed Build-Up:
Dermaplaning is an incredible exfoliation that can remove up to 3 weeks of dead skin cells. This deep exfoliation triggers new cell regeneration and leaves a youthful and glowing appearance.
2. No Downtime:
Unlike other skin care treatments, the results of dermaplaning are immediate and do not require any downtime.
3. Removes Vellus Hair (aka, Peach Fuzz)
Another incredible side effect of dermaplaning is the removal of that peach fuzz that, yes, gets worse with age. (Thank you, hormones!) Without this peach fuzz, make-up and other skin care products are more easily absorbed into the skin leaving you with the most incredible finish.
4. Smooth Uneven Skin and Reduce Pores
Dermaplaning gently resurfaces the skin - resulting in even skin tone and reduced pores. With repeated treatments (every 4 weeks), fine lines disappear and skin is visibly smoother, allowing you to ditch that foundation and have the real ‘I woke up like this’ complexion!
5. Better Absorption of Product and Flawless Makeup
With the deep exfoliation and removal of the vellus hair, active ingredients in skin care products perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well giving you that Instagram filter look in everyday life (serious #skingoals)!!
The procedure involves the use of a scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair. If you're thinking to yourself now, "you want to put a what to my face?" - you are not the only one. Yes, a sterile surgical blade is used, and yes, many women initially express concerns. All of these women, though, quickly come to love the results, The service is completely safe and pain-free.
When clients hear the word dermaplaning, they quickly associate the term with the procedure known as dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a medical procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis using a whisk like device. There can be complications associated with dermabrasion, including infections and scarring, which is why it is not commonly used anymore. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is a simple physical exfoliation of the epidermis.
And don’t worry, It will NOT make your hair grow back thicker or darker.
One of the most common misconceptions about dermaplaning is that it will make the hair on your face grow back darker and thicker. This is a total myth! Dermaplaning only removes the superficial vellus hair so it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
