WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
A method of exfoliation that gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth, also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Wondering if you should try dermaplaning versus microdermabrasion?
They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But, keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference.
WHO IS DERMAPLANING FOR?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby. Dermaplaning is a painless procedure
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About 30 minutes to 45 minutes
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DERMAPLANING?
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair (that’s the science-y name for clear or white soft fine facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment
Regular treatments of dermaplaning have been known to:
- Diminish fine lines
- Smooth acne scarring
- Improve skin texture and tone
- Temporarily remove fine facial hair
- Generate new healthy cell growth
- Enhance penetration of skin care products
- Generate new healthy cell growth which helps in skin rejuvenation, hyperpigmentation, minimize pores sizes.
Will the facial hair grow back thicker?
No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest, or back. The other type of hair is called terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows, and the lower face of men. Hairs are always one or the other and they are not damaged or altered by the process of cutting or removal. So after dermaplaning, vellous hair grows back with its same characteristics.
