When people hear the term, “dermaplaning” they are usually reminded of the skin treatment known as dermabrasion, where a whisk-like tool is used to break down the skin to the dermis, leaving a potential for infection or scarring. However, dermaplaning is a different procedure entirely, and is completely safe!
Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective exfoliation procedure. A sterile, surgical scalpel is used to gently shave the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine hair. Hair, or peach fuzz, can trap oils and dirt on the skin, causing it to look discolored and perpetually shiny. This dirt cannot be lifted with an exfoliating soap from the drugstore, so it can cause great frustration for many. When this hair is removed, the skin is left looking fresh and healthy. The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPLANING?
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate the skin. Our dermaplaning in Evansville, IN is performed before a Hydrafacial or custom facial, which is most effective by adding dermaplaning prior to the facial. Contrary to popular belief, fine hair will not grow back thicker or darker. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!
It’s important to note that dermaplaning employs a specific technique requiring a delicate touch and a skilled approach to resurface skin. We don’t recommend shaving at home as an alternative to dermaplaning. When you shave, the average razor has two blades, which are also duller than surgical blades.Dermaplaningis performed freehand with a surgical scalpel on the tautly stretched skin. The methodology requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region and should be done by a licensed, skilled professional.
