Dermaplaning has become one of the hottest skincare treatments, so what is it and why is it so popular? Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skincare treatment, that removes dead skin and peach fuzz. The treatment consists of using a surgical scalpel, to help provide smoother skin, zero peach fuzz , and slightly brighter-looking skin. Plus, all your amazing products will be able to penetrate your skin more effectively, thus getting you the best results!
A lot of people hear surgical scalpels and ask will dermaplaning hurt? The truth is that you will notice the blade during your treatment, but there should never be any pain. People also like to ask if they will see any breakouts after their treatment. Dead skin and hair follicles are a major cause of breakouts so removing these actually help prevent breakouts. Another question we hear is there any downtime involved with dermaplaning treatments? The answer is no, there might be some slight redness afterwards, but the majority do not feel that they need any downtime. Even though there is no downtime needed, we always recommend that you wait a day before wearing make-up. This allows your skin to breathe and helps prevent your skin from becoming annoyed.
Most people tend to get a dermaplaning facial once a month. While people with sensitive skin will only get it done seasonally. One thing to consider, is that dermaplaning can make your skin more susceptible to the sun. That means using a good sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF. If you don’t have a good sunscreen in your daily skincare regimen, then make sure to ask your Aesthetician.
Overall, dermaplaning is an amazing skincare treatment and can be performed on all different skin types. The benefits are super beneficial and with no downtime how can you beat that?
