What is dermaplaning?
When you think of dermaplaning, you can think of a treatment in which you, in essence, "shave your face." A single blade is used that looks much like a scalpel. When the aesthetician applies the scalpel to the skin's surface, the result is the removal of dead skin cells and that "peach fuzz" that can cover portions of your face. In the end, you are left with softer, silkier skin that looks refreshed and replenished.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost for dermaplaning can rage. It depends on where you go to get it done and the results you are after. In other words, some clients will combine dermaplaning with other spa treatments meant to make a face look younger and more radiant. If you go to a dermatologist for dermaplaning, this can sometimes be more expensive than if you were to get it done at a med spa. The one thing you want to be careful of is at-home dermaplaning solutions. While these are widely sold, they can cause more harm than good if done incorrectly.
What are benefits of dermaplaning?
The results are pretty stunning because dermaplaning is designed to remove the top layer of skin cells, those otherwise dead skin cells. The key to successful dermaplaning (when done right) is that the skin "thinks" that it is wounded. This, in turn, accelerates a healing process and stimulates collagen production. Collagen gives skin its elasticity and thus causes the skin to look firmer and younger.
Many who get dermaplaning done also swear that it allows better absorption of makeup, thereby creating an overall more natural effect. For example, many will go for dermaplaning just before a big event such as a wedding. Because the makeup goes on smoother, you use less foundation than you otherwise would. The exfoliated skin better absorbs the products that you apply.
Are there any side effects to dermaplaning?
Because dermaplaning is a type of "shaving" process and a scalpel type device is involved, many wonder about the potential side effects and risks associated with dermaplaning. As far as the pain, the process is relatively painless. If you do, however, have cystic acne or skin that is in some way inflamed, you probably want to hold off on this treatment until the skin clears up. As long as you go to a trained and experienced aesthetician who has performed dermaplaning before, you should have a smooth and enjoyable overall experience.
Also, many women wonder if, after dermaplaning, they are more likely to grow hair on their faces. This is a myth. Because of how the treatment is done—the hairs just on the skin's surface are removed—there is no danger of growing hair on your face. It is merely the soft, fuzz-like hairs that get released. Versus the growth on a male's face, this is quite different. The sole intent of dermaplaning is to leave the skin feeling smoother, looking brighter and rejuvenated.
What to do following your dermaplaning appointment?
As noted, if you do have issues with acne or have some other form of inflamed skin condition, you will likely want to hold off on getting dermaplaning. So, for instance, if you happen to suffer from eczema or psoriasis, you would like to consult with your doctor regarding whether or not you would be a candidate for dermaplaning. If you are unsure regarding any skin condition, it is highly advised to speak to your dermatologist or doctor first.
During the dermaplaning treatment, a series of "micro-cuts" are created on the skin's surface. This again is to help spur the healing process and thereby boost collagen production. Collagen makes skin look younger. The tiny "cuts," however, need to be cared for following your treatment. You thus want to avoid products that contain acids and benzoyl peroxide for at least three to four days or until the skin is fully healed, as these products can irritate. In doing your daily skincare regimen, try to stick to those noted products for being gentle on the skin. All-natural products are a great option following dermaplaning.
One thing too to keep in mind is always to utilize sunscreen after your dermaplaning appointment. This skin is newly exfoliated, meaning it is more susceptible to the sun's rays. This, in turn, can cause damage due to exposure to UV rays. Sunscreen is a definite must after a dermaplaning treatment.
With all the high-tech treatments available today, many might ask why go with dermaplaning? Dermaplaning has proven highly effective for years now. The process is simple, and the results are verifiable.
As far as who dermaplaning might benefit:
- Those looking to reduce fine lines. Collagen helps make skin look plumper and firmer; this is important when fighting the signs of aging. With dermaplaning, collagen production is effectively stimulated.
- People are getting ready for a significant event. As noted, dermaplaning makes it so that makeup gets absorbed better, and the effects are more realistic as a result. Getting ready for a big event or significant day—dermaplaning could be the way to go.
- Those concerned with the look of peach fuzz. Especially for women concerned with having too much peach fuzz on the surface of their skin, dermaplaning gets rid of this issue and leaves your skin looking amazing.
- People wanting brighter skin. Over time skin can look duller due to exposure to elements and just plain "wear and tear." With dermaplaning, you help increase the brightness factor of your complexion.
- People who want to relax. Dermaplaning is a relaxing process, especially when combined with a facial treatment.
If you are considering dermaplaning, talk to an experienced professional about precisely how it might benefit you. Get questions answered to address any concerns you might have before your appointment. This is one way to get incredible-looking skin.
