Facial exfoliation has long been valued for its rejuvenating benefits. Dermaplaning takes exfoliation to a whole new level by removing several layers of dead, damaged skin cells and engaging the body’s natural regenerative abilities. If you suffer from dull, dry skin, enlarged pores, fine lines, mild to moderate acne scarring, dark spots or other aesthetic issues, this treatment can renew your confidence and create a clear, youthful and healthy-looking complexion.
How Dermplaning Works
Dermaplaning is considered a noninvasive procedure given that it does not involve any cutting or tissue removal. This treatment creates a controlled, moderate amount of skin damage to increase cellular turnover, soften and smooth the skin and produce immediate, noticeable results. It is believed to be the most effective method of exfoliating due to its ability to incite increased, natural healing and restoration of the skin. This procedure instantly produces plump, healthy skin cells at the surface layer for a renewed and vibrant look.
People who receive dermaplaning can enjoy the added benefit of having their fine, facial hairs removed. These hairs are referred to as vellus hair, and they can trap excess dirt and oil and lead to increased skin troubles.
Vellus hairs can also limit the efficacy of facial cleansers and other skin care products. It is vital to note that the removal of vellus hair during dermaplaning procedures will not cause this hair to grow back thicker or darker.
What to Expect During Your Dermaplaning Procedure
Before a dermaplaning procedure is started, the face is cleaned, toned and degreased to remove all trapped dirt and oils. Once these measures are complete, a sterile, surgical scalpel will be used to scrape away dry, damaged skin cells and all other debris at the skin’s surface.
This may be followed by the application of clinical products that are formulated for your skin type and needs. Special UV protection may also be applied to prevent skin damage as the dermis heals.
How to Know if Dermaplaning is Right for You
If you want skin that’s smoother, softer and noticeably more radiant, dermaplaning could be right for you. Dermaplaning offers a fast and easy way to clear the skin of dirt and debris that’s causing the complexion to look dull and aged.
This procedure is also ideal for those who are planning to receive other, non-invasive facial procedures. When used as a pre-treatment, dermaplaning will allow for deeper penetration of the related products and instruments. Dermaplaning is not recommended for people with active acne or current skin infections.
