“OMG! MY FACE FEELS SOFT LIKE A BABY!”
This was my reaction the first time I had dermaplaning and I have been hooked ever since! You may be wondering why it’s so great or have heard about it but aren’t quite sure what dermaplaning is or what the fuss is all about. Let’s talk about what a dermaplaning experience really entails and why its a must- add to your beautifying routine.
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of very carefully pulling a blade along the skin using a sterile scalpel to gently scrape away the outer layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. If the thought of a scalpel makes you nervous, you don’t need to be! In careful, trained hands, it is a painless, relaxing procedure. While Dermaplaning requires a very sharp blade, it is also rounded to be extra safe.
FEEL LIKE A CELEBRITY.
Dermaplaning is a celebrity favorite, because it makes you ready for your close up. How does it do that? As a bonus, dermaplaning eliminates that annoying wispy facial hair that makeup settles in and can look more pronounced by harsh production lighting, paparazzi flashbulbs, and high-definition cameras. If you think it’s not really a big issue for you, wait until it’s gone and you’ll realize just how much it was dulling your complexion. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, it leaves the skin’s surface very smooth. Another benefit of Dermaplaning is the boosted absorption and penetration of skincare products. It creates the most flawless canvas for makeup to glide on the absolute smoothest. Because of this, dermaplaning pairs well with other services and can help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
Another terrific aspect of dermaplaning is that practically anyone and all skin types can have it. This is a great treatment option if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of any contraindicated chemicals. The exceptions are acneic skin or if you have deep cystic acne, its best to wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment.
The top concern from women is that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back thicker and darker, but that’s just not possible. Superficial vellus hair (that’s the technical name for the soft fine blonde, gray, or brown facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment. Vellus hair cannot transform into terminal hair (the technical name for the longer, darker hair on your body).
AREN’T YOU DONE WITH LOOKING DULL?
Because dermaplaning removes about 21 days worth of dead skin cells, you’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, and you’ll swear your skin has never felt so smooth. Painless. No downtime. Just fresh, dewy, bright skin.
