THE CELEBRITY BEAUTY SECRET WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing procedure that improves the skin’s appearance by removing the top layers through a method of controlled scraping of the skin. This treatment helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines, uneven texture, and provides a healthier, more radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is typically done immediately before a chemical peel and allows the peel to work more effectively. By removing the outer layer of dead skin, the peel may be applied more evenly for a more dramatic result.
Dermaplaning can be used on small areas of the skin or on the entire face. It also removes vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz ”, which traps excess dirt and oil. This treatment prevents the hair from growing back thicker.
It improves scarring and smooths out small facial wrinkles leaving the skin refreshed, polished, and glowing without visible irritation. Dermaplaning increases product penetration and can be done monthly!
Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, it simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing that want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. This is because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on their skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient a healthier looking appearance.
