Now that the holidays are winding down, perhaps you are ready to feel refreshed for the new year. Our med spa offers a wide variety of aesthetic services to help you feel your best, including dermaplaning.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a type of facial, but it is more exfoliating than a traditional facial. Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells by scraping them away using a gentle, yet effective procedure. You can see in the video that the client is relaxed and the procedure is gentle which should put your mind at ease. Dermaplaning removes dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. In addition to scraping away the dead skin cells, dermaplaning removes the light layer of hair on your face which is often referred to as “peach fuzz.” Some people have thicker or darker “peach fuzz” which makes them feel self-conscious. This is an effective, painless procedure to remove the unwanted facial hair layer. It will grow back, but you can simply come in for another dermaplaning session!
What Other Benefits Does Dermaplaning Offer?
- Dermaplaning basically tricks your skin into thinking there has been an injury, even though the procedure does not injure you and is painless. Because of this “fake injury,” the skin produces healthier, plump skin cells creating smooth, soft skin.
- After dermaplaning your skin will be more receptive to facial products and treatments causing them to be more effective and penetrate the skin more easily.
- Dermaplaning does not cause redness or irritation. You can immediately resume your regular activities, including reapplying your makeup before carrying on with your day!
- Dermaplaning can be effective in helping to reduce acne scarring.
What Else Should I Know About Dermaplaning?
Because your skin is more receptive immediately following dermaplaning, we will most likely recommend a chemical peel. The chemical peel can provide an extra level of exfoliation. It also helps to even out skin tone and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We will then extract pustules and blackheads. This may sound gross to you, but don’t be embarrassed. Everyone has them and that is an important step in ensuring that your skin is as clean as possible. The final step is the application of skin products designed to meet the needs of your skin type along with sun protection.
