Manual exfoliation of the skin using a surgical blade or dermatome is called dermaplaning. The procedure gently scrapes away dead cells and problem areas on the outermost layer of your skin leaving it smooth, supple and healthier looking.
Why try Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning improves the appearance of your skin if you are bothered by superficial sun damage, fine lines, large pores, or dry and dull skin. Because the procedure requires no downtime, it is a useful addition to any skin care regimen for people wanting an even and healthy appearance to their skin.
Dermaplaning is particularly popular among women troubled by the fine hair that grows on your face also known as vellus hair or more commonly “peach fuzz.” Dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin and the fine hairs that may cause clogged pores and problems with makeup application.
Demaplaned skin makes it easier to apply makeup and improves the effectiveness of skin care products.
And don’t worry that removing peach fuzz may cause hair to grow back darker and thicker. Returning hair has an identical structure and regrows at the same speed.
What to expect after your Dermaplaning Session
Dermaplaning is non-invasive, and there is no downtime after your treatment. The convenience of this procedure makes lunch-time appointments ideal. Although there may be a slight reddening of the skin immediately after the treatment, you will notice the results of dermaplaning right away. And because there is no skin trauma, you can have dermaplane sessions several times throughout the year to keep your skin smooth and healthy looking.
