Over the past few years, dermaplaning has become increasingly common. The process involves the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with the fine hair, otherwise known as “vellus” hair, or peach fuzz. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face and is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, as these are made up “terminal” hairs. There are various reasons why dermaplaning continues to grow in popularity, as there are many benefits that coincide with this type of facial.
Removes Facial Hair – This type of facial is a similar function to shaving your face, but it is much more effective due to the type of blade that is used. The blade used during the facial is much sharper than what you can typically buy in stores. The aesthetician will focus on those problem areas to experience optimal results.
Exfoliates Skin – Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells from the face. Unlike microdermabrasion and other exfoliation techniques, dermaplaning does not require the use of any special chemicals and is non-abrasive. This makes it an optimal option for those with sensitive skin.
Anti-Aging Properties – During the dermaplane facial, you are essentially shaving off an entire top layer of dead skin, which reduces the effects of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. This helps to have a younger appearance, as your skin will look more awake and revitalized.
Painless – Typically removing hair can be a painful and frustrating experience. The dermaplane facial may seem scary, but it is actually the most harmless option when it comes to hair removal. During the process, it is both painless and relaxing.
Makeup Goes on Smoothly – Since dermaplaning removes the little hairs on your face, your makeup will apply more smoothly. You will end up using fewer complexion products like foundation, concealer, and powder since they work more effectively on smooth, exfoliated skin. When you have dry patches and layers of dull skin, it can interfere with makeup application.
