The secret is Dermaplaning! You may be asking yourself, what is Dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a method of physical exfoliation that involves a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (a.k.a peach fuzz). Your skin will not only be baby soft, but you’ll notice an improvement in fine lines, discoloration, acne scars, and firmness.
Are there any risk or side effects? Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects to Dermaplaning are very little but may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some clients develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after Dermaplaning but is rare. Infection and scarring are very rare after Dermaplaning but they could occur.
Will I grow a beard after Dermaplaning? You will not grow a beard after getting Dermaplaning. However, your hair will grow back, but it will just look like it did before you had the treatment! A surgical blade is used, which just shaves the ends from the fine vellus hairs. Nothing happens to the follicles themselves, so the way the hair grows is not changed.
Can men get Dermaplaning? Yes! It is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment which offers some of the same exfoliating benefits as microdermabrasion, however, there is quite a difference.
Can Dermaplaning ruin your skin? According to experts, the benefits are pretty much endless. “Dermaplaning triggers the cell regeneration process, which helps to improve, soften and smooth the appearance of acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and sun damage,” says cosmetic doctor and skin expert Dr Jonquille Chantrey.
How often should you get Dermaplaning? We recommended every three to four weeks. Our aesthetician will help each client figure out a schedule. Each time you get dermaplaned, you are removing about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells.
