Celebrities seem to possess naturally glowing skin, luscious locks, and wide-awake eyes. There are three main reasons for this: good genes, amazing glam teams, and some very well-kept industry secrets. Dermaplaning is one of those secrets—chances are, even if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve seen the results.
Dermaplaning which we could also just call, “shaving your face,” because this treatment involves gently pulling a blade along your skin. But! Dermaplaning, unlike traditional shaving, uses a smaller blade to slough off dead skin cells in addition to removing wispy facial hair, so skin is more even in tone and texture. It’s superficial (there will not be blood) and strangely reminiscent of a cat lick (tickly, sandpapery). It makes makeup go on smoother, too.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a physical/mechanical exfoliation that is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained skin care specialist utilising the appropriate tools for the service.
What Are the Benefits?
“Dermaplaning’ immediatly rejunevates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous hair. It is also highly effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. It is great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients of care products. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment to prepare for high profile occasions.
Is dermaplaning right for you?
It can be done on any skin type, say experts, except those with acne. AsAnd there’s zero truth to the idea that shaving makes hair grow back darker and coarser.This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child.
What are the side effects of dermaplaning?
In the hands of a professional, dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, especially those with sun damage, fine lines, dry patches, and dull skin. But, of course, there are caveats: If you have highly reactive, sensitive skin (like those with rosacea or keratosis pilaris), you may want to pass on this one, since it might irritate your skin. Same goes for anyone with inflamed acne—unsurprisingly, sliding a sharp scalpel over your zits can irritate them and worsen existing breakouts.
Dermaplaning vs. Dermabrasion
Lest you get confused, dermaplaning is not in any way similar to dermabrasion, which is a mechanical exfoliation that uses micro-crystals and suctioning to exfoliate. Dermabrasion is actually rarely done now, because of complications like infections and scarring.
Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is, quick, easy, and requires no downtime. However, you do need to wait at least two weeks until the next session.
Does It Hurt?How often can I dermaplane my skin?
This one’s easy. “Dermaplaning is virtually painless,” The only possible side effect is slight redness, which fades almost immediately. Dermaplaning is recommended every three to four weeks. An aesthetician will help you figure out a schedule. Each time you get dermaplaned, you’re removing about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells.
How Much Does It Cost?
Dermaplaning prices range from 50 € to 150 €, as an add on to a facial or as a complete face treatment.It can be combined with a chemical peel or facial because it allows products to sink deeper into the skin with the aim of quicker or better results.
