Over the years, your skin is damaged and dulled. A single dermaplaning treatment can swipe that all away, leaving you looking naturally radiant and youthful. The technicians at DrSkin are caring and skilled, and they can help your skin regain its health with dermaplaning.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that involves gently scraping at the top layer of skin with a medical grade scalpel. The scraping removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz, also known as vellus hair, to leave the surface of your face gloriously smooth. Furthermore, dermaplaning can stimulate the regeneration of skin cells, promoting a more refreshed appearance.
In short, dermaplaning can be used to give yourself a dewier look without needing any harsh chemicals and pain.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
The dermaplaning treatments at DrSkin are designed to be gentle and beneficial to your skin. Our technicians use a medical grade scalpel to remove dead skin cells from your face. Any vellus hair is also removed.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
There are many benefits to dermaplaning. Not only is it a gentle form of exfoliation that rejuvenates your skin, it is relaxing, quick, and pain-free. Here are some other benefits to consider:
- Brightens your complexion
- Does not require the use of harsh chemicals
- Zero downtime
- The fresh layer of skin is healthier and smoother
- New skin absorbs skin care creams more easily, and cosmetics are easier to apply after dermaplaning
Is Dermaplaning the Same as Dermabrasion?
In actuality, dermaplaning and dermabrasion might sound the same, but they are two separate techniques and provide different results. As explained previously, dermaplaning is when the topmost layer of skin is scraped away to reveal the smoother, younger skin beneath. A dermabrasion is a process that uses crystals and suction to exfoliate the skin. In most cases, dermaplaning is far quicker and less risky than dermabrasion, which can sometimes lead to scarring.
What Happens During Dermaplaning?
On the day of your scheduled appointment, the friendly team at DrSkin will get you checked in and comfortable. You will be taken to an office where a gentle technician will start preparing your face for the treatment. They will slightly stretch your skin so that it is taut enough to run the scalpel over. This may sound scary, but our technicians are skillful and deft. The gentle upward motion of the scalpel will cause no pain while it removes dead skin and peach fuzz.
The best part is that your dermaplaning treatment will last a maximum of 30 minutes. You do not have to worry about aftercare and can immediately go back to your daily schedule. If you do experience any redness or irritation where the dermaplaning took place, the discomfort is easy to manage with some pain-relieving medication or an ice pack.
What Should I Expect After Dermaplaning?
Immediately after, following the care instructions our team has given you. Avoid skin care products like retinol and exfoliants for 24 hours after your treatment. Afterwards, make sure you wear sunscreen (which is essential for skin health).
In order to keep your skin smooth and youthful, we recommended monthly maintenance appointments. Additionally, there are long-term benefits to doing this for your skin, including increased cell regeneration, reduced appearance of acne scars, and a smoother, more evenly toned complexion.
Should I Worry About Increased Facial Hair?
Not at all! There is a myth going around that dermaplaning—like shaving—can cause your facial hair to come back thicker and darker. This cannot be farther from the truth. Hair does not get physically thicker or larger at the base because of shaving. The only difference is that the blunt end caused by shaving as a larger surface area then when the end is tapered. The vellus hair on your face is very fine, and so you will not notice it growing back, especially if you continue dermaplaning.
Who is a Good Candidate For Dermaplaning?
Do you want softer skin that glows? Want to remove peach fuzz and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes? Then a dermaplaning treatment is right for you. Dermaplaning is non-invasive and pain-free. No chemicals are required, and the treatment is relaxing and quick.
Individuals who have sensitive skin, are pregnant, or who cannot handle certain chemicals will find that dermaplaning is a safe and effective option.
