Dermaplaning is a trend that’s sweeping the nation! Celebrities opt for this gentle treatment before award shows to give their skin an extra glowy boost, but anyone can get this treatment for smoother, glowier skin!
The process of dermaplaning is simple — a skilled esthetician will hold a sharp blade at a 45-degree angle and use short strokes to remove dead skin cells and hair. The process is pain free, chemical free, and fast!
Let’s get into the benefits of dermaplaning, as well as when you should consider getting this simple yet effective treatment!
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Because dermaplaning is a physical exfoliant, it removes up to 21 days of dead skin cells from the top layer of skin, revealing smoother, glowier skin! This treatment can even reduce the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
And, with this smoother skin, your makeup will apply more evenly, giving you a more even base for whatever look you’re going for!
Another benefit of dermaplaning is the removal of unwanted facial hair. Many people opt for dermaplaning to remove sideburns, peach fuzz, and upper lip hair from their face. Removing this hair provides a smoother base for your makeup application!
It should be noted that this hair removal treatment is not as long-lasting as waxing or laser hair removal, as dermaplaning does not remove the follicle of the hair. Think of it as shaving, only better with a deeper exfoliation!
Enhances Other Treatments
Another popular way dermaplaning is used is as a precursor to other treatments. After dermaplaning, other skin treatments, such as a Laser Genesis Facial, will be much more effective because it allows the treatments to penetrate deeper and removes the surface barrier on the skin.
Even if you don’t opt to get another treatment after dermaplaning, it will allow any products or serums to soak more deeply into your skin for optimal effectiveness.
When You Should Consider Dermaplaning
Before Laser Treatments
If you’ve decided to get a laser treatment, we recommend getting a dermaplaning treatment done immediately before to increase the effectiveness of your laser treatment. You’ll see more effective results in a shorter amount of time!
If You Have Sensitive Skin
If you are sensitive to ingredients that are common in facial treatments, especially chemical exfoliants, dermaplaning is a great alternative. It’s safe on sensitive skin, and it’s a pain-free treatment as well!
