Our skin is constantly exposed to outside environmental factors that can take away its youthful luster. That paired with the natural aging process will leave the skin looking dull, dry, and sun-damaged. If it is not properly taken care of, these issues can become more severe, giving you a much older appearance. Fortunately, dermaplaning can be used to address these cosmetic issues.
What is Dermaplane?
Dermaplane is a skincare method for removing dry, dead skin cells as well as vellus hair (also known as “peach fuzz”). Dermaplane is performed by stoking the facial skin with a blade-like tool. This method of exfoliation is gentle, safe, effective, and does not require downtime.
Some of the many benefits of Dermaplane include:
Dermaplaning can help make the skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. It can be used on many different skin types and treat common skin problems such as:
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
- Dry skin
- Fine lines
- small hairs
While you can see the results of demaplaning right away, you’ll get the most benefit if you maintain a regular treatment schedule. Many people have it performed every three to four weeks – enough time for the skin to complete its normal thirty-day rejuvenation cycle. It takes years for your skin to lose elasticity and vitality, so it takes some time to regrow new cells.
What are the risks?
Side effects are mild and rare. Some people report feeling temporary dryness and redness. In rare cases, the skin may be nicked, though it will heal very quickly. If you experiencing peeling, it is probably due to dermaplane procedures being performed too closely together. After treatment, be sure to use moisturizer and sunscreen.
While all skin types can benefit from dermaplane, it is not recommended for those with severe acne or excessive oil production, as hair removal can cause bacteria growth and lead to breakouts.
