Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning also removes vellus hair.
Dermaplaning is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks. Dermaplaning cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
Dermaplaning is performed on the face, under the chin and sides of the neck.
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. Darker skin tones actually have more layers of skin, so with aging, the skin tends to sag rather than wrinkle. Dermaplaning removes these extra layers of skin, helps correct pigmentation concerns and provides a more youthful and healthy glow.
Clients with active acne outbreaks or cold sores should not be treated until lesions are healed. Dermaplaning is great for diminishing acne scars but should not be performed during active outbreaks. Clients with bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting should not be treated. Clients with diabetes not under control by diet or medication should not be treated. Clients undergoing cancer treatment should also not be treated.
No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft, plus makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish.
