Dermaplaning is a cosmetic skin treatment that uses a Dermaplaning blade or medical scalpel to exfoliate the outer layer of your skin, removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair known as “peach fuzz” or “vellus” hair.
The blade is gently guided against the skin in an upward motion at a 45-degree angle to achieve the desired result. Removing the outer layer of skin means eliminating environmental toxins, irritants, and other debris that may have built up on the skin’s surface, leaving it looking dull and lacklustre.
The process of removing these dead skin cells promotes the production of collagen, resulting in improved skin elasticity and generally younger-looking, brighter skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick, convenient, and painless treatment option that will give your skin a glowing pick-me-up and won’t require any downtime. Dermaplaning is an effective treatment on its own and perfect if you’re after a boost of radiance and are short on time. Dermaplaning is even more effective when incorporated into your broader beauty regime and tacked on to other treatments. Combining it with other skin treatments like facials will allow the active ingredients in your skincare products to more deeply penetrate your skin and optimise its appearance.
Dermaplaning can be performed anywhere on the body but is mostly performed on the face. It’s a popular means of removing fine facial hair and hair around the upper lip and cheeks. This is especially true for people with blonde hair who aren’t suitable candidates for laser hair removal.
You can expect the positive effects of Dermaplaning to last for about a month, so to maintain bright-looking, smooth skin, regular Dermaplaning sessions will be required.
It’s true that Dermaplaning removes vellus hair, and it’s also true that the effects of Dermaplaning are not permanent. This means that hair will grow back following treatment, and dead skin cells will again accumulate. To maintain a youthful and bright appearance, it’s recommended that you undergo Dermaplaning treatment around once a month. Including Dermaplaning in your regular skin-care routine will leave you with a more youthful complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage.
While hair will grow back on the treated area, the hair will not grow back thicker or darker than before. It may, however, feel like you have stubble growing because of the way that the hair is cut off your face, much like a razor.
