A daily habit for men, should women shave their faces too? Although it is easy to initially balk at the idea, a treatment known as Dermaplaning is quickly growing in popularity. While performed in a completely different manner than how a man shaves his face, or how a woman shaves her legs, Dermaplane uses a sharp blade to gently scuff away dead skin cells. By encouraging the regeneration of new skin cells, Dermaplane leaves your complexion refreshed and glowing.
What is a Dermaplane Facial?
Dermaplaning uses a sterile blade and delicate, feather-like movements to gently remove the outermost layer of the epidermis. Serving as a method of exfoliation, dermaplaning removes dead skin cells along with surface debris. Healthy skin and younger skin cells are revealed as old, dry, and often damaged skin is removed.
Dermaplane can be performed alone or in conjunction with a medical grade chemical peel. For best results a series is recommended, but results can be seen after one treatment and include smooth, radiant skin that glows.
What are the benefits of Dermaplane?
By replacing tired and worn skin cells, Dermaplane offers a plethora of skin rejuvenating benefits including:
- Unblocks pores
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Increases efficacy and penetration of topical products
- Smooth skin helps makeup go on easier
Another benefit adding to Dermaplane’s popularity is that it removes the baby hairs, commonly known as “peach fuzz” that cover the face. As the vellus hairs build up, dirt and oil are commonly trapped within the follicles.
Who will see the best results?
Although suitable for all skin types, Dermaplaning works especially well on dry skin. Dermaplaning cannot be performed on current acne outbreaks. Dermaplaning does not use chemicals; making it an excellent treatment for those with chemically sensitive skin, and women who are either pregnant or nursing.
Doesn’t Dermaplaning hurt?
Many flinch at the idea of a blade running across their face, but when done correctly, dermaplaning is actually a gentle treatment. Better yet, there are no associated side effects or downtime. Although your skin may appear a bit red following your treatment, there is little chance of bothersome inflammation.
Our patients are pleasantly at surprised by how smooth and silky soft their skin feels following the treatment. Are you in need of a complexion boost? Schedule a consultation Lisa, ourexpert skin care specialists.
