7 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT DERMAPLANING
1. Dermaplaning eliminates fine wrinkles.
While it won't do much for those deeper wrinkles, it can eliminate the fine wrinkles that begin to develop over time. The wrinkle is actually removed (yes, removed!) from the skin, creating the appearance of a smooth complexion. The results can last up to 6 months.
2. There is no down time with this procedure.
Facial procedures can often leave a girl with several days of downtime, but that is not the case with dermaplaning. In fact, the only side effect is smoother skin.
3. Dermaplaning removes those annoying "peach fuzz" hairs.
Apparently, there is a second side effect to dermaplaning -- hair removal! As we age, we tend to get more hair on our faces (dang hormones!) that our makeup and other products can get caught in. Dermaplaning is basically shaving -- on steroids but much safer than hair removal creams or plucking.
4. It may sound simple, but the results last.
Because this procedure removes up to 3 weeks of dead skin cells that have accumulated (excuse us while we make an appointment immediately!) the results last up to 4 weeks. Now, if you have a good daily maintenance (like Elta MD or SkinMedica skin care products) you can make the results amplified & longer lasting.
5. Speaking of skin care products...
After this procedure, your skin care products will work much better as they are able to absorb directly into the skin without having to work their way through layers of dead skin.
6. An actual surgical scalpel is used.
It's true. A 10-gauge, sterile spcialty scalpel is used during this procedure.
7. Dermplaning should never be tried at home.
While it may appear to be a simple shave, it is much more complicated than that! Surgical scalpels are much sharper than the average razor and the technique requires a delicate touch making it nearly impossible to do at home. Save yourself a few cuts on the face and leave it to the professionals.
