The Benefits of Dermaplaning

July 5, 2017

 

 

We can sometimes become overwhelmed with the many different skincare treatments that are available today. We want the most cost-effective solution but also the most benefits. The answer to both is dermaplaning.

 

Dermaplaning is the process of using a 10 gauge scalpel to remove the top layer of skin. This method of exfoliation might sound strange, but it is a time tested, non-invasive solution for beautiful skin. Dermaplaning resurfaces skin and delivers a number of benefits:

  • Rejuvenation of the skin by removal of dead skin cells and peach fuzz

  • Smooth skin

  • Increased cell turnover

  • Anti aging

  • More natural complexion

  • Even skin tone

  • Increased effectiveness of other facial skincare products

This method of exfoliation has additonal advantages.  First, it prepares the facial area for other treatments, allowing them to penetrate deeper and making them more effective. It is perfect for all skin types except those with live acne. Dermaplaning is even a favorite for women who are pregnant or nursing and want to avoid having harsh chemicals used that could absorb into the bloodstream and affect the baby's health. There really is no better method for skin resurfacing for women of all different ages. By removing the dead skin women are also less likely to get fine lines and wrinkles, which we all want to avoid as we age.

 

With all of the benefits that are available to us from dermaplaning you might be thinking, "What's the catch?" or "Doesn't shaving your face make the hair grow back thicker?" No! This is an absolute myth. Dermaplaning will not affect the number hair follicles that you have or their thickness.
