How do some of your favorite celebrities get such smooth, glowing skin? They dermaplane. Dermaplaning is a painless, quick, and effective way to remove dead skin cells from your face, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and give you a lovely complexion. If you haven’t tried this revolutionary new skincare treatment, now is the time to give it a shot. At the Institute of Aesthetic Surgery in Celebration, FL, we specialize in this treatment and can help you get the lovely skin that you crave.
How Often Should You Dermaplane?
What Does This Treatment Entail?
Essentially, your skin technician will use a 10-gauge scalpel to remove dead cells, exfoliate the skin, and eliminate hair. The scalpel never penetrates your skin, but it does stimulate cell regeneration and remove any debris from your face. The process is completely painless and swift, and you will be left with glowing, beautiful skin when it’s over.
All Skin Types Benefit
Although almost everyone can benefit from this treatment, it’s important to talk to our team if you have severe acne or cystic breakouts happening or if your skin gets very irritated easily. Although dermaplaning can reduce the appearance of scarring caused by acne, you should hold off on getting this treatment done if you are having an active breakout. We will be happy to assess your individual needs and help you to make the best-educated choice for your care.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment, and you can get right back to living your life as soon as you leave the office. You can even apply makeup right away. Most people find that their makeup looks better than ever because their skin is so smooth and impurity-free.
Where Can You Get the Treatment?
What Does This Treatment Target?
Dermaplaning is so popular because it’s a relatively cost-effective and painless way to address a whole host of complaints and roll back the clock on your face.
It Can Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
Dermaplaning can help you to look younger, thanks to its combination of impurity removing and exfoliation. Deep exfoliation helps to produce collagen, which plumps up our skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you stick to a regular dermaplaning schedule, the results can be even more dramatic as more collagen builds up in the upper layers of your skin. With regular maintenance, you can look several years younger than your age simply by dermaplaning; no invasive or painful treatments necessary!
It Brightens Dull Skin
Since this treatment removes dead or damaged skin cells from your face, your skin will tend to look a whole lot brighter once you’ve gone through the treatment. New skin cells make our complexion look radiant, and since dermaplaning helps to stimulate their growth, this treatment can give you a fresh and lovely face.
It Eliminates Fine Facial Hair
Vellus, or peach fuzz, is common on most of our faces. While it might not always be noticeable, peach fuzz can make our makeup appear chunkier or uneven and give our skin a dull look. Some women will even wax their upper lip to get rid of the peach fuzz there. Dermaplaning is a painless and easy way to remove peach fuzz from your face. It leaves your skin smooth and hair-free, making your complexion brighter and helping you look fabulous in makeup.
It Helps Unclog Pores
Exfoliating treatments like dermaplaning are excellent ways to unclog your pores and help to prevent acne breakouts in the future. Impurities can lodge themselves deep into our dermis, popping up as pimples or blackheads when we least expect it. Fortunately, dermaplaning can help to remove all of this debris and leave us with unclogged, clean pores.
Skin Care After This Treatment
It’s important to care for your skin properly after your dermaplaning treatment. Follow these simple steps, and you will be well on your way to long-lasting lovely skin.
Avoid the Sun
Although it might feel warm and nice, the sun is definitely not your skin’s best friend, and this is especially true after dermaplaning when your new skin is at its most vulnerable and tender. Try to stay out of direct sunlight for at least three days, and when you do go out into the sun, remember to wear a sunscreen of at least 40 SPF.
Wait To Exfoliate
Since dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment, it’s best not to double up and exfoliate for at least a week after having the treatment done. Give your skin a chance to breathe and thrive.
Don’t Go Swimming Right Away
In some cases, chlorine can hurt freshly dermaplaned skin, so it’s best to avoid swimming right after your treatment. Wait for at least three or four days before hopping in the pool, and if you have any type of irritation, get out right away.
Moisturizing creams and serums will be some of your best friends right after dermaplaning. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated and clean, so give it as much moisture as it wants. Just be cautious about using products with Retinol in them, as that can damage your skin.
Misconceptions About This Treatment
There are so many misconceptions about dermaplaning swirling around out there, but fortunately, they are not based on reality. These common misconceptions are often cited by people reluctant to try out the treatment.
Some people think that because dermaplaning involves a scalpel that it’s painful, but it certainly is not. The scalpel will never penetrate into your skin and only glides across the top, removing debris, unclogging pores, and taking off fine hair. In fact, when it comes to hair removal, dermaplaning is the least painful way that you can get hair-free skin. Waxing and sugaring are both substantially more painful than dermaplaning.
Your Skin Will Break Out
Dermaplaning will not make your skin break out. Instead, it removes impurities so that you will experience fewer breakouts in the future. Since dermaplaning actually renews skin cells, most people find that their skin products, including acne treatments, sink into the skin far better after a dermaplaning treatment session.
You’ll Get Darker Hair
There’s an old wives tale that says that if you shave your hair, it will grow back thicker and darker. This is incorrect. Your hair will grow back, but it will be the same consistency and color as the hair that you had removed.
Can I Do This Treatment at Home?
Although it might be tempting to try dermaplaning at home, you really should see a professional for the best results. Professionals use surgical-grade blades to remove dead skin, peach fuzz, and impurities expertly. They are trained in exactly how to conduct the treatment and know precisely what to focus on to make sure that your skin is properly treated. Most people will not have access to surgical-grade blades, and even if they do, it’s dangerous to try to shave your face with one. You could very easily cut yourself, perhaps even seriously.
You also shouldn’t try to dermaplane with a razor designed for body hair. The blades are far too big and cumbersome, and you risk nicking your face or missing entire sections. Although it might be tempting to take a shortcut and DIY your own dermaplaning experience, there are plenty of downsides, and you simply will not get the results that you would from a professional. If you want dermaplaning done right, go to the experts.
