Dermaplaning is one of the most effective techniques used to exfoliate the outer skin layers using a blade instead of chemicals or lasers. Dermaplaning resurfaces the skin and removes unwanted facial hair temporarily. And no, the hair will not return thicker or darker after this treatment! Hair can trap oil and dirt leading to other skin problems, so dermaplaning is a great preventative treatment. When compared to alternative treatments, dermaplaning has the advantage of NOT causing broken capillaries on facial skin! This treatment is painless, very safe and is usually performed every 4-6 weeks. Dermaplaning is inexpensive and does not include a lot of downtime (a little redness 24-48 hours afterwards) which is always good for women with hectic work schedules. It can be performed on any skin tone. After dermaplaning, the skin is left feeling baby smooth and make-up is much easier to apply. Dermaplaning also helps topical treatments work more effectively since the skin is “fresh”. A lack of skin cell “build up” allows creams/serums to work more effectively as they can penetrate more easily. Dermaplaning is not a new technique and has been used for many years. It is a quick way to immediately revitalize the skin and remove unwanted facial hair.
