Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment that involves the use of a handheld device or scalpel to remove dead skin and vellus hair on the face. It is performed by a licensed and trained aesthetician or dermatologist. The scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle and lightly scraped over the skin to remove dead cells and hair from the epidermis or topmost layer of the skin. The result is smooth, bright, and youthful-looking skin.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
A major skincare trend that has caught the attention of many individuals is dermaplaning a type of facial treatment that involves the use of a surgical scalpel to manually exfoliate the outer layers of the skin
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive and painless treatment that does not require any downtime. Post-treatment, you can expect slight redness or a tingling sensation around your hairline, cheeks, and forehead, which will most likely disappear after a few hours. However, it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight exposure or wear SPF 30 sunscreen for up to 24 hours after the treatment. You should also avoid using products that include retinoids and alpha or beta hydroxy acids for at least 2-3 days.
WHAT DOES RECOVERY LOOK LIKE?
Dermaplaning offers several benefits for the skin. Firstly, it exfoliates the skin, which allows for faster cell renewal, giving you brighter and smoother skin. Secondly, dermaplaning enhances the effectiveness of skincare products and stimulates collagen growth, which helps to improve the skin's elasticity and overall texture. Also, dermaplaning helps to remove the vellus hair, otherwise known as "peach fuzz" that can trap dirt and oil, leading to acne. Finally, regular dermaplaning sessions can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
