Dermaplaning is an effective exfoliating treatment. The esthetician uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin (along with the peach fuzz on your face). Why is this necessary? The buildup of dead skin and microscopic hairs can make your complexion appear dull, flaky, and can even cause breakouts due to clogged pores and hair follicles. Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.”
Benefits of Dermaplaning
- Brighter, smoother skin: Dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which can make the skin look dull and flaky. It also removes vellus hair, which can give the skin a more even appearance.
- Improved fine lines and wrinkles: Dermaplaning can help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the dead skin cells that can make them more pronounced.
- Reduced hyperpigmentation:
Dermaplaning can help to reduce hyperpigmentation by removing the dead skin cells that can trap melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color.
- Improved acne scars: Dermaplaning can help to improve the appearance of acne scars by removing the dead skin cells that can make them more noticeable.
Dermaplaning is a safe procedure for most people, but it is important to follow safety guidelines to avoid any complications. These guidelines include:
- Only have dermaplaning performed by a qualified esthetician.
- Make sure the esthetician uses a sterile scalpel.
- Avoid dermaplaning if you have active acne or open wounds on your face.
- After dermaplaning, avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen.
