Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment for freshening and vitalizing our skin, and may also be used to enhance the absorption of a number of plant/chemical peels.
Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eye lids, neck, or chest. Furthermore, it is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days. Along with sloughing away dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help reduce the visibility of acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as do away with extraneous vellous (translucent) hairs on the face.
Dermaplaning – How it Works
The Dermaplaning Esthetician carefully exfoliates the top layer of the skin with a specialized surgical blade. The process removes dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and stimulates new skin development. This procedure takes place in the medical center and time allotted is typically 30 minutes. There is no “down time” involved and you may return to your office or your busy schedule afterwards. Patients who routinely receive Dermaplane treatments comment on the smoothness of their complexion and its “baby skin like quality” and see an immediate improvement to the radiance of their skin tone.
Dermaplaning – Additional Benefits
There are several benefits to blading that may make it the ideal method of skin exfoliation for you. First of all, no chemicals are involved, which means less irritation for your newly sensitive skin. Secondly, a session will generally last no more than 30 minutes and won’t leave you with a red, swollen complexion afterwards. In fact, results can be noticed immediately. Furthermore, because the blade being used is small, dermaplaning can target specific problem areas more easily and skillfully than other procedures that use larger instruments and focus on the face as a whole.
Dermaplaning is also frequently used prior to another facial treatment. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and stimulates the surface of the skin, chemical or plant based skin formulations are absorbed more efficiently and results are remarkably improved.
