What is Dermaplaning?
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Improves fine lines and wrinkles, promotes collagen formation, lightens brown spots, reduces acne scarring, and promotes healthy cell turnover. All while leaving the skin with a smoother and healthier appearance. Once the dead outer layer of skin and peach fuzz are removed, products penetrate the skin easier, and make-up goes on easier so your skin looks smoother.
What About Removing Hair on The Face?
It is a common wives tale that when a female “shaves” the hair from her face it will grow back as thick dark hair, like a male’s. The truth is that it is male hormones that promote their facial hair to grow thick and dark, not the actual event of shaving. A female’s hair will grow back exactly as it was prior to the dermaplaning. Peach fuzz traps oil and debris on the surface of the skin making it appear more dull. Hairless skin is much softer and smoother.
Dermaplaning As a Stacking Treatment
Dermaplaning is most beneficial when stacked with other procedures, such as a prior to a chemical peel. The chemical peel can penetrate much deeper when dermaplaning is done prior. It is also beneficial to be done prior to certain types of microneedling or even prior to applying a serum treatment protocol. This protocol will give the skin a much more desired cosmetic outcome- like a skin treatment on steroids!
Can Anyone do Dermaplaning?
All skin types and colors can enjoy this procedure. The only time it is contraindicated is with active pustular acne. It is important to know that dermaplaning is a maintenance treatment, like a facial. So keep in mind, that if our skin makes an entirely new layer every 6 weeks, this procedure is going to provide the best outcome if done every 4-6 weeks.
