What is it?
Dermaplanning is a popular exfoliation treatment that can be performed at home or in a professional setting. This treatment involves using a sharp blade to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the brighter, smoother skin beneath. The sharp blade is also able to the peach fuzz (vellus hair) from your face. The treatment is often used in conjunction with other facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, to further improve the appearance of the skin.
One of the major benefits of dermaplaning is that it provides an alternative to chemical exfoliants, which can be harsh on sensitive skin. This treatment is also beneficial for those who have fine facial hair, as it can help to prevent ingrown hairs. Overall, dermaplaning can leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and more radiant.
Dermaplanning can be performed on any skin type, but is especially beneficial for those with dry, flaky skin or an uneven texture. This treatment can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and can even out the skin tone.
How it works
The science behind dermaplanning is relatively simple. The blade is used to physically remove the dead skin cells that sit on the surface of the skin. This process not only reveals the brighter, smoother skin beneath but it also allows for better penetration of skincare products.
Dermaplanning is a quick and easy treatment that can be performed in under 30 minutes. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, and you can expect to see immediate results. However, it is important to note that dermaplaning will need to be repeated every few weeks in order to maintain the results.
Getting dermaplanning professional conducted is always the best and most recommended way to go about it. This is because the aesthetician will have years of experience and know exactly how to carry out the treatment in the most effective way. They will also be able to provide you with aftercare advice, such as which skincare products to use in order to get the most out of your treatment.
