One of the best things you can do for your face is to remove dead skin cells that like to accumulate there. Dermaplaning is a very gentle yet highly effective manner of doing this. As a result, you end up with smooth skin and a healthy glow.
How Does Skin Exfoliation with Dermaplaning Work?
A scalpel is used to gently and precisely scrape off the top layer of skin during this treatment. This is a very safe process that has been used for years to help people look their best. It removes all of the dead skin cells on the face as well as the fine hairs located there. This can make a big difference in how easy it is to get a flawless finish when applying make-up.
The Dermaplaning Experience
Despite how intense it may sound, dermaplaning is actually considered to be pain-free. Many who have experienced it compare it to the sensation of shaving your legs. The first step is to thoroughly clean and dry the skin on your face. It will then be held taut while we expertly scrape the top layer with a scalpel. Overall, the process can typically be completed in minutes.
When your treatment is complete, you will need to take extra care to protect your skin from the sun. It will be more sensitive for the first few days. Other than this, there is no downtime associated with dermaplaning. You can go right back to work if desired.
How often you have this treatment done depends on your skin and your goals. This highly effective option for skin exfoliation can remove weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. As a result, it is recommended that you have it done no more often than once every three weeks. For many people, this is a great treatment to have done just before a major event, such as a wedding.
Who Can Dermaplaning Help?
One of the best things about this treatment is that it is safe and effective on all skin types and tones. The only exception to this is people with active cystic acne. This treatment can help anyone looking to:
- Have their make-up go on smoother
- Lighten acne scars
- Remove the fine hairs that laser treatments leave behind
- Encourage skin cell turnover
- Rejuvenate their overall appearance
