Dermaplaning is a popular treatment to remove dead skin and peach fuzz from the face and neck area. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation of the skin using a scalpel to gently shave the skin’s surface. After dermaplaning, the skin feels and looks smoother.
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
The physical exfoliation that dermaplaning provides stimulates skin cells and allows skin care products to penetrate better. In addition, dermaplaning is an excellent way to remove unwanted hair on the face. Excessive hair can make skin look dull and dermaplaning helps to make the skin look smoother and healthier. The hair that is removed during dermaplaning will not grow in thicker or darker.
Who should consider dermaplaning?
If you have dry, flaky skin dermaplaning is an excellent option. If you have peach fuzz, dermaplaning is an exceptional choice. Dermplaning is also safe before a chemical peel to help it penetrate more as well as during a facial. Dermaplaning can be done on all skin types and is safe all year long. Because there are no chemicals used during a traditional dermaplaning, it is a great exfoliation choice for sensitive skin. People who have active acne or dark facial hair should avoid dermaplaning.
Is there any downtime with dermaplaning?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning and you can resume your normal skin care products and treatments. Dermaplaning can be done monthly and can be included in facials and chemical peels and other services.
