ermaplaning is a distinctive technique for facial rejuvenation that gets rid of dead skin cells and very fine hair from the face. It is a type of superficial exfoliation that uses a sterile medical grade blade to get rid of the outer layer of skin, resulting in smoother, dewy, more youthful skin. The technique has been around for many years and has several benefits.
Dermaplaning can improve:
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scars
- Rough, dry skin
- Fine lines
Dermaplaning triggers a high rate of skin cell turnover, and this contributes to the improved appearance of the skin. The procedure essentially resurfaces the skin, thereby diminishing skin blemishes such as acne scars.
How Dermaplaning works
A local anesthetic is usually applied at the start of the procedure. A blade is then used to gently ‘shave’ away dull skin cells from the epidermis or outermost layer of skin. The medical practitioner will hold your face tightly, and gently use the blade to stroke your face and exfoliate the dead skin cells. Dermaplaning also gets rid of the very fine, thin hair on the face. The process is quite safe and relatively painless, and there is no downtime. Possible side-effects include redness, swelling, and irritation.
What should you expect?
Exfoliation makes the skin surface soft and smooth and has other benefits such as making it easier for the skin to absorb skin care products. After Dermaplaning the facial skin is also supple, and the complexion is bright and vibrant. Regular exfoliation keeps the skin looking fresh, and your skin will look and feel great after every treatment.
