There are many ways we can exfoliate for a brighter, more radiant skin. Not all exfoliation treatments are ideal for all skin types. Some treatments are invasive, can prove contraindicative and requires some downtime post treatment.
Dermaplaning is one of the exfoliation treatments that can be tolerated by most skin.
Here are questions I get regarding dermaplaning.
What is dermaplaning?
Simple answer: Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation that removes the dead skin cells which can
leave skin looking dull.
Detailed answer: Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a specialized instrument designed to scrape away accumulated dead skin cells and vellus hair. It is a comfortable, relaxing procedure that can be combined with other services to improve their efficacy. It’s the perfect treatment to get before a special event or any time you want to look your best. You’ll enjoy improvements in your skin’s health and appearance right away with no downtime. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, newer, younger skin will be revealed. Skin breathes easier and active ingredients in topical products penetrate deeper to treat the skin and provide needed hydration and antioxidant support to improve skin health.
With Dermaplaning, you will notice improvement in the tone and texture of your skin immediately.
Treatments are gentle and take very little time. Ideal for a busy lifestyle. With no downtime, you’ll return to your routine immediately. You’ll enjoy the confidence that comes with having healthy, younger, more radiant looking skin in just one session.
Because this treatment utilizes a simple blade and no machinery, it is priced at a reasonable price point.
Who is dermaplaning for?
Dermaplaning is ideal for all skin types and skin color, age 25 and beyond, who are in good overall health and interested in improving the health and appearance of their skin.
What results can I expect?
Brighter, softer skin that glows with renewed health. You’ll also notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. Dermaplaning is also safe on sensitive skin.
How soon will I see results?
Results are immediate and there is no downtime, so no waiting for better skin. Dermaplaning is a great treatment before an important social event or anytime you want glowing skin.
How long do treatments take?
Dermaplaning treatments can be as short as 30 minutes or can be part of any facial treatment that incorporates enzymes, extractions, masks, infusions, light therapies and/or chemical peels. Your aesthetician will help you determine the right combination for your skin.
How often should I get Dermaplaning?
You’ll love the way your skin looks and feels from the very first treatment. The recommendation is every 4 weeks to maintain results and continue to see improvement.
