Dermaplaning is a procedure that will carefully and gently shave away the top layer of skin from the surface with a physical exfoliation using a sterile, surgical scalpel. During this procedure, the fine, vellus hair, otherwise known as peach fuzz along with the top-most later of dead skin is removed. Dermaplaning only takes 30 minutes, there is no downtime post-treatment, and it should be scheduled every month. Though dermaplaning is done exclusively on the face, the vellus hairs are the only treatable hairs. Nose hairs are avoided for example and terminal hairs or eyebrows, cannot be shaped. Aestheticians, nurses, or doctors can perform this treatment, depending on the state’s regulations. Bearing this in mind, we at Vitae Med Spa would like to share the basics of dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning Facial Benefits
To better penetrate skin with products, the physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process. Dermaplaning gets rid of fine vellus hairs that have a tendency to accumulate oil and dirt, making it ideal for an excellent option for those that have an excess of the fine vellus hairs. Vellus hairs, contrary to myth, will not grow back thicker or darker, unlike the terminal hair that can appear to do so. The peach fuzz is not removed for those looking into microdermabrasion, which is another popular physical skin exfoliation. The result of dermaplaning is that it removes dead cells and fine hairs, leaving the skin smoother, brighter and healthier.
Good Candidates for Dermaplaning
Those with dry or rough skin texture, uneven skin tone, and superficial acne scarring can minimize these blemishes, in which dermaplaning is especially effective. Another good candidate are those with mature skin as cellular turnover slows down with age. Unlike chemical peels, dermaplaning is safe for everyone including pregnant or lactating clients. However people with thick, dark facial hair and those prone to oily skin or active acne should avoid dermaplaning. Dermaplaning can result in soreness and sensitivity as the procedure has a tendency to irritate skin that is prone to acne. Clients with excessive facial hair, in addition to obvious and noticeable stubble, can experience “razor rashes”, spots under the skin and ingrown hairs.
Dermaplaning is Safe
Specialists conducting dermaplaning uses a required and specific technique. They use a delicate touch and a skilled approach as they are licensed and certified, depending on the state guidelines. This procedure can only be performed in an approved establishment and should never be done at home. Many people compare it to shaving but shaving uses an average razor has two blades duller than surgical blades, but the dermaplaning uses the surgical scalpel. Short strokes at specific angles in particular patterns, depending on the facial region are required for the methodical approach.
