Nationwide, a new skin treatment is starting to skyrocket in popularity. That treatment is dermaplaning. Helping to rejuvenate skin while also removing buildup of dead skin cells and facial hair, dermaplaning is a great treatment for almost everyone looking to give their skin a vitalizing boost. So, if you’re thinking about getting a dermaplaning treatment, here is exactly what you need to know about the treatment.
In short, dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique very similar to shaving. Often combined with other treatments, dermaplaning is a great way to boost your skin’s glow while also getting rid of those pesky facial hairs. It’s gentle, non-invasive, and perfect for adults looking to revitalize their skin.
Using a surgical blade, a professional scrapes the outer layer of skin, completely removing all of those dead skin cells as well as the small hairs on your face. It’s a great way to remove these contaminates while leaving your skin smooth and rejuvenated.
While you may be thinking that running a surgical blade across your skin would be painful, it’s really not. In fact, dermaplaning is extremely gentle and pain-free. Generally, it feels just like a normal shave, maybe even a little bit more comfortable.
Typically, the treatment lasts no longer than a few minutes, but most opt for a facial or a chemical peel following the dermaplaning treatment for better results. We do recommend 3 to 6 initial dermaplaning treatments to get the most out of the procedure, and also recommend a dermaplaning treatment once every 30 days.
While results very for each person, most people experience smoother and brighter looking skin as well as reduced facial hair almost immediately. Of course, your facial hair will grow back over time, but many experience an easier time maintaining that facial hair after just a few dermaplaning sessions. After most sessions, you’ll see results, and they should last for a few weeks.
While there aren’t too many side effects you need to watch out for after a dermaplaning treatment, you should be mindful of your skin for a few days following the procedure. After a treatment, your skin is especially prone to sun damage so we recommend daily application of sunscreen.
