Dermaplaning: a powerful anti aging skin treatment and more
Dermaplaning is a popular exfoliation procedure for several reasons:
- Eliminates peach fuzz
- Removes dead skin cells
- Allows skin to absorb products more efficiently
- Prepares the skin for other procedures
- Evens skin tone and texture
Clients love the smooth feel of their skin with the added benefit that peach fuzz, which can complicate make up application, is gone.
A treatment for all ages and skin types
Christi recommends dermaplaning for all skin types. During the procedure, she uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of skin. When the procedure is complete, the skin is brighter and smoother because dead skin cells have been removed.
The all-important medical history
Discussing your medical history during the consultation is important. Dermaplaning is not recommended for those with acne. Make sure to discuss any skin conditions or allergies with Christi before undergoing treatment. Be sure to share any questions or concerns you may have during the consultation.
Dermaplaning takes about 30 minutes. After settling comfortably in the treatment room, your face is cleaned and dried. The procedure involves stretching the skin and working in small areas to shave off the hair and dead skin cells. There are no harsh chemicals involved. It feels like shaving but it’s the face and not the legs.
After the treatment, your skin may be a little red and will be sensitive to the sun. Be sure to wear sunscreen. Other than that, there is no downtime and no after effects.
Super soft; super smooth
After dermaplaning, you are left with smooth, soft skin. The results are amazing. Your skin will glow for weeks. Since dermaplaning takes off about 20 days of dead skin cells, it’s best to wait at least 20-25 days before the next treatment. Some patients do microdermabrasion and dermaplaning in one appointment.
