Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. A certified aesthetician uses a small sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upwards motions. It is painless and leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing and more youthful. The only people who can’t dermaplane are those with active pustular acne.
The procedure involves the use of a 10-inch scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture an tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of the fine facial hair.
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After Dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your make-up goes on smoother as well. It’s the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like resurfacing skin peels, facials and micro needling.
I always tell my clients that they can’t just treat their skin when they see me – they have to do it at home too! Professional home care products can really boost and maintain your results.If you are battling acne, a peel will gently exfoliate, kill acne-caused bacteria, and calm inflammation. In addition to being a deeper, non-abrasive exfoliation, peels can hydrate, lift hyperpigmenatation, and speed up cell turnover, all revealing brighter, healthier, more glowing skin.
