Dermaplaning is a new form of manual exfoliation that is performed primarily on the face. It is also known as leveling the skin.
It involves the use of a dermatome. The dermatome is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.
Dermaplaning is an ideal method of skin exfoliation because it removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple.
Dermaplaning is usually performed on the face every 4 weeks which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
Along with sloughing away dead skin cells, Dermaplaning can help reduce the visibility of acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as do away with bothersome and unneeded vellous hairs on the face.
By removing your damaged skin layer, your body is stimulated to produce new collagen and refreshed skin cells.
For even more stunning results the procedure can be followed with a cosmetic peel.
Salicylic acid is very beneficial in the treatment of acne by means of unclogging pores and exfoliating the skin. Because it is an organic compound, salicylic acid is a natural ingredient that will not cause skin irritation.
For a more aggressive peel, Glycolic Acid Peel is used to rejuvenate the skin to create a younger, firmer appearance. The peel is followed by a moisturizer, and a sunscreen.
Dermaplaning is ideal for those with uneven skin, acne scarring, and fine lines around their mouth and eyes. Also, for women who have a little extra fuzz on their face, it can be a pain-free alternative to tweezing and waxing.
Dermaplaning can also serve as an excellent remedy for men who suffer from razor burn and bumps caused by shaving.
A session will generally last about 30 minutes and won’t leave you with a red, swollen complexion afterwards.
In fact, results can be noticed immediately.
Furthermore, because the dermatome being used is small, Dermaplaning can target specific problem areas more easily and skillfully than other procedures that use larger instruments and focus on the face as a whole.
Also, there’s no need for women to fear that the vellous hair on their face will grow back thicker after it’s been bladed because it won’t.
There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies. Vellous hair (tiny translucent light colored hair) and Terminal hair (thicker hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, eye brows, mustache and legs)
Vellous hair when cut or removed will grow back the same. The structure of the hair does not become damaged; therefore it’s physiologically impossible for your vellous hairs to grow back thicker.
Terminal hair is physiologically coarse; when terminal hair is cut, it grows back the same way…coarse.
Dermaplaning is very safe; minor bleeding is possible, but rare.
It should also be noted that your skin will feel sensitive after a session, so you’ll want to be cognizant of that and take the proper precautions, as far as protection from the sun.
Dermaplaning is a safe and non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation. Dermaplaning is a rejuvenating treatment for the skin of your face, everyone can benefit, no matter what skin type color, whether male or female.
