What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an excellent solution for clients who want to experience rejuvenated skin without resorting to intensive facials or surgical methods. The procedure uses a surgical scalpel to gently yet effectively remove the top layer of skin, revealing younger, clearer-looking skin.
Who Is a Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for dermaplaning if you have hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, and even excessive facial hair. Please note that candidates with acne should refrain from this procedure, as dermaplaning is not an ideal solution for those with cystic acne or current breakouts.
Dermaplaning is also a great alternative for clients who have darker skin tones and therefore may not be able to undergo laser treatments or chemical peels. Pregnant women can undergo dermaplaning, as there are no chemicals involved in this procedure.
What Is the Procedure Like?
The procedure isn’t painful at all; in fact, many clients compare it to feeling sandpaper across the surface of their skin. Some clients even compare it to the feeling you experience when you shave your legs. The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes to administer, making it an excellent treatment option for even the busiest person.
There are no side effects associated with dermaplaning. However, clients need to protect their newly sensitive skin with a high SPF sunscreen. Make sure you get SPF 30 or higher, especially if you have fairer skin. Your skin may appear slightly pink for a couple of days.
What Should I Expect?
As soon as you’re done with the procedure, you’ll notice that you appear more radiant and refreshed. Scars and brown spots will be less visible, and wrinkles will look less noticeable. Most clients schedule a dermaplaning session every 30 days to maintain these results.
