Touted as the hottest and in beauty treatment of the moment, dermaplaning is a trend that is here to stay.
A non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, dermaplaning is effective in that it leaves your skin smoother, softer, and visibly brighter. Targeted to remove the fine vellus hair—also known as peach fuzz—from your face, dermaplaning is fast becoming a popular skin procedure that provides maximum results with minimum hassle.
With virtually no pain, the treatment is as easy and comfortable as it can be. If you’ve dreamed about having a baby-smooth skin, but disliked the hair removal procedures available, then dermaplaning is the answer to your needs.
You do know that dermaplaning is all the rage these days, and that it is really effective, but here are a few things you don’t know.
1. It Eliminates Fine Wrinkles
Millions of dollars have been invested into the anti-aging industry in hopes that the fast-moving train of time can be slowed down. As we grow, our skin gradually diminishes to be as supple as it once used to be. The time-hardened skin contracts various wrinkles and lines that can mar your overall beauty.
Dermaplaning removes fine wrinkles which lead to a smoother appearance of the skin.
2. There is No Down Time
As with most skin procedures, there is a certain amount of time needed for recovery and healing post-treatment. A lot of facial procedures, such as chemical peeling or microneedling, can mean 3-4 days of recovery. But one of the good things about dermaplaning is: no down time!
3. It Uses a Surgical Scalpel
Dermaplaning uses a sterile 10-guage surgical scalpel to aid the hair removal process. However, the process is entirely invasive; the scalpel is only used to gently slough off the dead skin cells accumulated on the outer surface.
4. It Provides Lasting Results
Though the treatment may sound simple, shaving off fine facial hair, it provides actual lasting results. Dermaplaning can remove up to 3 weeks worth of accumulated dead skin cells from your face. The results, in turn, can last for up to 4 weeks, and even 6 months if proper care is taken!
5. It Improves Product Absorption
Dead skin cells can act as a barrier between the products you’re applying to your face and the healthy skin surface it must reach. With dermaplaning ridding your face of pesky dead cells, skin products can penetrate more deeply into your skin.
6. It Improves Makeup Application
Similar to skin care, after dermaplaning, your skin becomes so smooth that makeup goes on like a dream. A smoother skin surface, without any peach fuzz to trap the product, results in a far smoother makeup application process.
7. It Should NOT be Tried at Home
The procedure may sound fairly simple; after all, it’s just like shaving off facial hair, right? Wrong. Dermaplaning should only be performed by an expert aesthetician. Trying this at home is unsafe and may result in nicks and cuts.
