Exfoliation is an excellent way to keep your skin healthy, and dermaplaning can be a valuable tool for your skin care regimen.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a type of skin exfoliation that removes dirt, oils, dead skin cells, and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from your skin. The treatment not only makes your skin softer and brighter, but also helps your skin care products penetrate better, and makeup goes on silky smooth.
Why Should I Consider Dermaplaning?
Oils, dirt, and dead cells on the surface of your skin are the genesis for acne. The debris also creates a barrier for other aesthetic treatments, such as chemical peels, that make these options less effective. The vellus hair can trap the debris on the surface. Dermaplaning allows your products to penetrate the skin.
What It Treats:
• Boosts the effects of skin care products
• Makes skin look smoother
• Reduces appearance of acne scars when performed regularly
• 30-45 minutes
• No recovery is needed
• Can return to normal activities the same day
• Clears away up to 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells
• Hair grows back gradually over 4 weeks. Can be repeated 4-6 weeks
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
Dermaplaning costs $99.
What Are the Different Benefits of Dermaplaning?
The benefits of dermaplaning are:
Better penetration of skin care products
Safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
What Happens During a Dermaplaning Treatment?
The dermaplaning tool is designed with a sharp scalpel-like blade that is placed against the skin at a 45-degree angle. This prevents any injuries to the skin while removing the dead skin, vellus hairs, and oils. The tool is slowly drawn across the skin. The sensation of a dermaplaning treatment is like a mild scratching, and you may also feel the cool sensation of the dermaplaning tool.
What Can I Expect After a Dermaplaning Treatment?
After the treatment, your skin feels very smooth and soft. It may also feel a little sensitive for a few hours. We can recommend skin care products to soothe your skin, as some products may sting for the first day.
How Long Do the Results of a Dermaplaning Treatment Last?
We recommend that you wait about four weeks in between your dermaplaning treatments. You can use at-home exfoliation products between your treatments to keep your skin healthy and refreshed.
