Our skin sheds dead cells every day, and sometimes they need to be scrubbed off to reveal the healthy skin cells underneath. There are many facials scrubs to exfoliate the skin, and there are also professional treatments, like dermaplaning.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation and hair removal procedure in which a scalpel is used to shave the top layer of your skin. A clinician will perform this treatment by holding the scalpel at a 45-degree angle against your face. They will then scrape off any and all dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
By scraping off your skin’s top layer, dermaplaning exfoliates your skin. This helps even your skin tone and remove dirt and oils that can clog your pores and cause acne. This gives your skin that great healthy glow that everyone loves.
Dermaplaning is a completely safe and painless skin care treatment. Unlike waxing, you won’t be shrieking in pain. The scalpel removes hair easily and painlessly. It is also completely safe. There are no chemicals being used. This makes it safe for pregnant women — who typically have to avoid many skin care treatments.
An awesome benefit of dermaplaning is that there is no downtime. You can walk out from your esthetician’s office and go straight to work. Other skin care treatments, like chemical peels and microneedling, can leave you with redness and peeling for days. Dermaplaning gives you an instant glow without any recovery time.
How is Dermaplaning different from shaving?
When you want to eliminate unwanted facial hair, a professional dermaplaning treatment is more effective than when you use a razor at home. The oil and dirt that build up in the hair follicles on your face are removed by dermaplaning. This means the exfoliation you receive is a lot better. The final result is a brighter and smoother complexion. Shaving does not offer the same benefits as dermaplaning:
- Brighten the tone of your skin
- Soften rough skin to leave you with a smoother face
- Help soften the look of mild scarring
- Improve superficial hyperpigmentation
Shaving might be a suitable option for your needs if your only goal is to remove the hair on your upper lip or eliminate your peach fuzz.
When you experience a dermaplaning treatment, the dead skin cells found on the surface will be efficiently scraped off by your esthetician providing you with a much better exfoliation than shaving. Your skin will be hairless and smoother and your complexion noticeably brighter.
What should I avoid after Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a highly effective physical exfoliation method, which uses a surgical scalpel to shave away facial peach fuzz hairs and dead skin cells. This process stimulates your skin’s natural regeneration mechanisms, leaving a rejuvenated and healthy-looking complexion. Below are some aftercare tips on how to get the most out of your dermaplaning treatment:
- For a minimum of 7 days post-treatment, use a gentle cleanser and apply moisturizer
- For 3 days post-treatment, avoid sun exposure as much as possible
- Avoid excessive heat 3 days post-treatment
- Avoid chlorine for 24 hours.
- Avoid facial waxing for 7 days.
- Do not scratch, pick, or aggressively rub your face
- Do apply serums as absorption levels will be elevated
