If you do regular facial treatments, you have probably heard of Dermaplaning. There are many celebs who swear by it, and beauty magazines that promote it, but do you really know what it is? If you’ve been scared off by scary images of scalpels, let us help eliminate any misconceptions you might have.
What it is
Dermaplaning is a non-surgical treatment that involves gently grazing the skin’s surface with a sterile blade, removing fine hairs and dead skin cells. After the treatment, you are left with very smooth, fuzz-free skin. By clearing the skin, Dermaplaning allows peels, serums & skin care products to actually sink into the skin, rather than sitting on the skin’s surface.
As such, it can be very effective when used in combination with another gentle facial treatments. Plus, our Dermaplaning treatment includes a tailor-made facial for even better results!
In addition to helping skin care products penetrate better, there are other benefits to Dermaplaning. The removal of dead skin cells facilitates deep exfoliation to improve healing. The skin is left looking and feeling healthy and radiant. It also helps to correct mild textural abnormalities, bringing about healthy cell renewal and refreshing the skin. And despite the fact that there are blades involved, there is no pain associated with a dermaplaning treatment, so you don’t need to be worried.
How often should you be treated?
We recommend a Dermaplaning facial treatment about once a month for best results. Your skin needs enough time in between to rejuvenate so that you don’t over-exfoliate.
There are a number of at-home dermaplaning treatments in the market, but it is strongly advised that you only have the treatment administered by a professional as it can be dangerous if done by an amateur.
