What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skin treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair (also know as peach fuzz) while hydrating the skin. This treatment is very relaxing, beneficial and the best part – it’s painless! Dermaplaning will leave your skin looking brighter, smoother, and glowing.
This procedure involves the use of a 10-inch scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the face and neck. Clients notice immediate improvement in their skin tone and texture, while the long-term effects increase cell turnover, decrease fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dark spots, reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and the removal of facial hair.
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial as the fine hairs trap debris and oil, which can give the skin a dull appearance. Post dermaplaning, skin care products perform more efficiently and are more easily absorbed by the skin. Benefits include, smoother makeup application, increase in product absorption, soft skin and hair removal.
Why is maintenance so important?
Clients shouldn’t just treat their skin when they see a Smooth Effects skin expert, ideally they’ll to do it at home too. An at-home skin care regime between professional treatments can really boost and maintain results. For example, if a client is battling acne, a peel will gently exfoliate; reduce acne-causing bacteria, and calm inflammation. Clients should then follow-up with the appropriate skin care to boost and maintain results, in which will reveal brighter, healthier, skin.
