DERMAPLANING is a form of exfoliation
The goal of exfoliation has always been to remove dead skin cells and encourage cell turnover. Skin cells turn over every three to four weeks in young skin. With age, this process moves at a slower rate, making monthly exfoliation more important. Exfoliation “tricks” the skin into turning over at a faster rate than it normally would.
To trick the skin, a controlled injury (exfoliation) is created. When the skin is injured, new skin cells are sent to replace the old ones, and collagen and elastin are produced. Loss of collagen and elastin is the biggest contributor to wrinkles. While collagen can be put back into the skin, elastin is too big of a molecule.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a lot like microdermabrasion, another popular mechanical exfoliation technique. Both mechanically exfoliate the skin, but dermaplaning also removes the vellus hair from the skin. In this method of exfoliation, a sterile, surgical scalpel is used to complete the process. It is definitely not as scary as it sounds. However, this method of exfoliation should be done by a trained professional and definitely not at home. While the scalpel used is in a way “shaving your face,” you can think of it as shaving your skin. The technician will use small strokes around the entire face to remove any impurities, clogged pores and facial hair.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning will trigger the cell regeneration process to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermaplaning will exfoliate the top layer of your skin, taking off dead skin cells. Therefore, it can help lighten pigmented spots.
Other exfoliation processes sometimes take more time to show the results, but dermaplaning shows immediate results.
Dermaplaning is safe for everyone and there is no downtime involved.
Smooths rough skin
Dermaplaning is especially beneficial for people with rough, dry skin. The scalpel is effective in smoothing out skin and evening skin tone.
Peach fuzz or vellus hair? It easily removes this hair without any problems.
Dermaplaning is good for letting products such as peels, strong serums or skin remedies penetrate deeply into the skin, as results are improved after exfoliation.
Dermaplaning is a gentle form of exfoliation, and it can be more gentle than a peel or microdermabrasion for sensitive clients. It is also great for new clients who want to start with gentle anti-aging treatments before jumping into more.
Dermaplaning is safe to do every four to six weeks, which is the target range you would want to get those cells turning over faster.
Clients will notice that their makeup will go on better after a dermaplaning service.
