What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a great way to rejuvenate skin for a youthful appearance. A scalpel is used to gently scrape away dead skin cells. Dead skin, peach fuzz, and other things can make skin appear uneven and rough. Dermaplaning will remove these and create a more even and smooth appearance.
In a more basic sense, dermaplaning exfoliates skin. It is a great option for individuals who are not able to undergo more aggressive treatments. This is especially true for people with sensitive skin that cannot undergo treatments like a chemical peel.
Dermaplaning can also remove vellus hair, which is peach fuzz. Peach fuzz on the face can trap bacteria, and eventually creates acne. Dermaplane treatments remove this, which ultimately leaves the skin smooth and prevents acne. A smooth surface creates an even surface and allows skin care products to work more effectively because they are applied to new skin cells.
After Effects of Dermaplane
When the top layer of dead skin cells are removed, it reveals youthful skin that was underneath. After the treatment your skin is kicked into overdrive and triggers cell rejuvenation. In the weeks following treatment, the skin produces more collagen and elastin. This is beneficial for your skin and helps it look youthful and fresh.
Is Dermaplane for You?
Dermaplane treatments can be performed on a wide variety of people. Unlike some skin treatments that cannot be performed on everyone including pregnant or lactating women, it can be performed on these individuals. It is safe for almost everyone wishing to receive the treatment.
The risks associated with dermaplaning are very low. Dermaplane scalpels can cut your skin, however these are minor injuries and are similar to how you might cut yourself when shaving. Occasionally, people have a reaction to the cleaning solution. Some people also report that their skin appears and feels dry for a short time after the treatment. If you receive too many treatments in less than a 3 week minimum, it increases the risk of skin irritation and may cause the skin to peel.
