Exfoliate Your Face Quickly: 10 Key Facts About Dermaplaning

1. It’s a Quick Way to Exfoliate Your Face

Some in-office skincare treatments require that you block an hour or more off of your calendar for your appointment. This treatment, however, is a quick one and can take as little as 20 minutes from start to finish. You’ll be able to be in and out of our offices in a very short amount of time and can go on with the rest of your day.

2. It’s Simple

Dermaplaning isn’t an overly involved treatment. Instead, it only involves the use of one tool and three basic steps. First, your esthetician will wash your face and prepare it for treatment. Once your face is clean and free of any make-up or product, the esthetician will use a fine scalpel to carefully remove the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the area being treated and then will wash off any leftover skin and hair from your face. After that, you’ll be done.

3. Everyone Is a Candidate for This Treatment

Some skin treatments have a list of exclusions attached to them, yet this treatment is open to everyone (except those with severe acne or open wounds). Women who are pregnant or nursing can safely undergo this treatment because it doesn’t involve any chemicals that could be absorbed by the skin. This is also a gentle form of physical exfoliation, so those with sensitive skin can undergo this treatment as well without fear of irritation or inflammation.

4. It’s Cost-Effective

When you compare dermaplaning with other forms of in-office exfoliation, it is a cost-effective treatment. It won’t cost you thousands of dollars per treatment, so you can schedule it monthly to maintain optimal skin results. If you’re looking for a gentle, exfoliating treatment that can be scheduled monthly without breaking the bank, this treatment is one of the best options available.

5. It Increases the Effectiveness of Your Skincare Products

One of the benefits of this treatment is that your serums, moisturizers, creams, and other skincare products will all perform better. Exfoliated skin is free from dead skin cells that lie between your products and your fresh layer of skin. Once you remove that barrier, your products will be free to absorb more effectively. This is good news because if you’re in the habit of spending a lot of money on skincare, you want to get the most out of your money.

6. It Improves the Appearance of Mild Acne Scars

If you have scars that you wish would look less noticeable, dermaplaning is an effective treatment that will help improve their appearance. The scalpel moves across the scar, and as it exfoliates the skin, it takes with it some of the scar tissue, resulting in a collagen increase in the area. When collagen increases on the surface of the skin, it plumps skin tissue, and in this case, reduces the appearance of the scar.

7. It Removes All Peach Fuzz

It is easy to cut or nick your skin in an attempt to self-remove the fine hair known as peach fuzz from the surface of your skin. An added benefit of this treatment is that it seamlessly removes your peach fuzz along with the dead skin. You can walk out of your appointment with exfoliated, smooth, hairless skin.

8. There’s No Downtime Involved

Some in-office treatments require that you plan your life around the downtime that results after your chosen skincare treatment. This treatment, however, requires no downtime and can be scheduled whenever you have the time to come in, even if it’s during your lunch break at work. Whenever you choose to schedule your appointment, you can come in for treatment and then go about your day, just with better-looking skin.

9. It Changes Your Make-Up Application

If your make-up isn’t applying as smoothly as you would like it to, your skin may need exfoliation. Dermaplaning removes dead skin and peach fuzz and changes your make-up application for the better. Fine hairs can get in the way of your make-up application and keep it from applying smoothly and flawlessly. Following your treatment, you will notice and feel a noticeable difference in how your make up applies and how it looks.

10. It’s Painless a Treatment

The thought of a scalpel on your skin may remind you of a horror movie, but regarding this treatment, it is painless. The estheticians who perform this treatment have been trained to learn the precision, skill, and technique required to execute this treatment properly, so you can rest assured that your skin is safe in their hands. The entire process is painless.
