A Quick Explanation Of Dermaplaning
Cosmetic procedures have advanced quite a bit these days, to the point where there now exist procedures to help deal with the tiniest things. One such procedure is dermaplaning, which rids the skin of vellus hair (often referred to as peach fuzz). Not only will this facial procedure renew and exfoliate your skin, but will also give the skin more breathability. This allows your skin products to penetrate more easily and deeply, letting them do more work. If you’re not allowed to use peeling agents but still want deep exfoliation, dermaplaning is a fantastic choice of treatments. Peach fuzz can be quite distressing, and so dermaplaning is quite popular. While this is not a permanent procedure, you don’t have to concern yourself with the hair growing back darker or heavier. It will likely grow back, but no darker than it was previously.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
The Dermaplaning Facial takes one hour, and can be repeated as soon as 3 weeks. It can be safely added with other facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
Absolutely! Dermaplaning is only performed by licensed aestheticians, which makes it perfectly safe. Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t be seeing an unlicensed aesthetician!
How Soon Will I See Results?
Results will be apparent immediately after treatment. You’ll have a bright glow to your skin when you’re done. Your skin will remain smooth and refreshed for days afterwards.
Can I Have A Chemical Peel At The Same Time?
Not only can you, we often recommend it! We think combining dermaplaning with a chemical peel is a great skincare treatment. Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells as part of the process. These cells often act as a fairly strong barrier against products, which means dermaplaning helps chemical peels work better. The alpha and beta hydroxyl acids penetrate more deeply, thus working better. However, it is a more intensive treatment. You may see flaking for 1-2 days afterwards.
