Dermaplaning – Why Should I Do It?

There are so many reasons! Let’s start with the basics…

What exactly is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe, painless and efficient method to sweep away layers of dead skin cells and the fine vellus hair or peach fuzz. It’s certainly different than merely shaving your face as it utilizes a surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle to accomplish this. It takes anywhere between 15-30 minutes, there’s no chemical irritation or downtime and results are immediate!

So what are the benefits?

There are numerous benefits to dermaplaning! First of all, its safe for virtually all skin types, including pregnant women! Overall, it will give you baby smooth skin and an amazing glow. By removing the dead skin cells and vellus hair, it promotes new cell turnover. Therefore, the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles and acne scarring is significantly reduced. Skin care products are more fully absorbed increasing their efficacy. The ability for dirt, dead skin cells and oil to be trapped is eliminated as the peach fuzz is removed, resulting in less blemishes and breakouts. Makeup just glides on, feeling and looking much more silky and smooth! Last but not least, it’s a phenomenal first step to magnify the advantages of procedures such as HydraFacials, chemical peels, microneedling, etc.

Anything else I should know?

While dermaplaning is absolutely wonderful for virtually all skin types, it’s best to consult with your skin care professional prior to beginning treatment. Also, make sure you wear your SPF and adhere to a proper and professional skin care regimen to maintain the best results. Dermaplaning can be done every three to four weeks. If you are looking for a safe, effective treatment for healthier and more youthful skin with instantaneous results, Dermaplaning may just be the game-changing treatment for you!
