Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation treatment that consists of gently pulling a special scalpel or razor blade across the surface of the skin. This is very similar to the process you use any time you shave. However, a dermaplaning blade actually sits even more snugly to the skin, allowing it to pull up debris and dead skin cells. Clients often turn to dermaplaning over other treatments, like chemical peels or deep-cleansing facials, when they need fast results. In some cases, dermaplaning may also be a better option for people with extremely sensitive skin who cannot tolerate other forms of exfoliation. It’s quick, easy, flexible, and pain-free!
Is Dermaplaning Treatment Safe?
Yes! Although it can sound scary to draw a blade across your face, the procedure is extremely safe as long as you see an experienced provider. Medical professionals who deliver dermaplaning treatments are specially-trained to use the blade safely and accurately, ensuring your skin is protected from start to finish. Dermaplaning is so safe, most patients don’t need any downtime after the end of their treatment process. At most, your skin may appear slightly pink or feel as if you have a mild sunburn for a few hours afterward. Cool cloths, aloe vera gel, and staying out of the sun (or at least wearing a good sunscreen) should be all you need to feel like yourself again.
Fresher, Smoother Skin
Dermaplaning treatment is extremely popular with models, celebrities, and actors – and with good reason, too. By gently scraping away dead skin cells, debris, and peach fuzz, skin becomes more evenly-toned and smoother in texture, too. Cosmetics apply more evenly, letting you achieve more with your makeup so you can look and feel your very best. It’s a great way to ensure your exterior matches your bright, beautiful personality. Think of it as a way to achieve beauty inside and out.
