You’ve always dreamed of a glowing complexion. Now you can have it with the help of a surgical blade
Dermaplaning is a non-surgical, non-invasive, alternative physical exfoliation procedure. The trained aesthetician or medical staff uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the top most layer of the skin’s surface, revealing a fresh new complexion that’s smooth to the touch.
The overall procedure involves eliminating 3 weeks worth of dead skin cell buildup along with fine, vellus hair (peach fuzz).
Comparing this treatment?
Among other exfoliating procedures, Dermaplaning is the least inflammatory. Other abrasive treatments could disturb the natural pH level of the skin as well as trigger other skin conditions.
Dermaplaning involves brushing a surgical blade on the surface of the perfectly cleansed and dried skin ahead of time by the attending aesthetician. The unwanted peach-fuzz as well as layers of dead skin are consistently removed leaving behind a perfectly clean surface. Vellus hair (face hair) grows back at its usual rate and patterns of texture, not thicker as it is often assumed.
People who have dry and dull skin, as well as those who’ve suffered from sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles should know they’ve got the most to benefit from the procedure. Inflamed or active acne complexions are not advisable and patients with this condition should wait until their skin clears up. Because of the sharp scalpel, due attention and care is needed when proceeding with the treatment on any surface which is not perfectly even.
Combining the Dermaplaning procedure with any subsequent skin treatment should also prove beneficial. The reason being that the skin’s pores are much more receptive to peels, serums and hydration. This in turn can speed up cell turnover and improve skin conditions as well as hyperpigmentation of any kind.
How do you benefit from the treatment?
- Your skin will look much brighter and even to the touch, with less visible wrinkles
- Dead skin cells no longer accumulate in pores, clearing and triggering less acne bacteria
- The “airbrushed” finish means you’ve got a clear canvas for skin care and makeup products
- Foundation and beauty products look much better on top of the clear, hair-free surface
How long will the procedure last?
Treatment time is 30 minutes.
Are changes visible right away?
Certainly, soon as treatment finishes, the skin will feel baby-like to the touch.
Are there any side effects?
None and there is no downtime. It would be best to have SPF50 at the ready as the skin would have become sensitive from having been stretched by the aesthetician.
How long will the results of the treatment last?
Results last a month, before the next cycle of skin layers accumulate.
