If you have sensitive skin and are looking for an exfoliation technique that won’t irritate your complexion, dermaplaning may be for you. SkinCenter has been offering dermaplaning as part of our suite of skin care treatments for some time now, but not everyone is aware of this how this simple, pain-free procedure can rejuvenate and restore their youthful appearance.
What is Dermaplaning?
Exfoliating treatments work by physically removing the top layer of tired, dead cells from your skin. There are several ways to exfoliate. For example, chemical peels use special formulas while microdermabrasion uses exfoliating crystals combined with gentle suction.
Dermaplaning involves the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave away the top layer of skin cells. Dermaplaning also removes the fine hairs (sometimes called “vellus hairs” or “peach fuzz”) from the face.
What Are the Advantages of Dermaplaning?
The biggest advantage of dermaplaning is that it’s fast and the results are immediately noticeable. Many people who work in appearance-conscious professions— such as actors and television reporters —rely on dermaplaning to look picture-perfect.
Additionally, dermaplaning makes applying makeup much easier as the absence of fine hair allows the product to go on smoothly and evenly.
Building Your Skin Care Stack: Where Does Dermaplaning Fit?
Many of our clients are highly motivated individuals who understand the importance of maintaining their complexion. With that in mind, it’s important to know that dermaplaning can help you get better results from other skin care treatments. Receiving treatments such as facials, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels after dermaplaning achieves more satisfying results.
Is Dermaplaning Right for Me?
Everyone’s complexion is different. There are some instances where dermaplaning may not be an appropriate skin care option, such as when someone has active or cystic acne. At SkinCenter, we work with each of our clients on an individual basis by tailoring beauty treatment recommendations to your unique needs. Schedule your confidential consultation today!
