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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's true. A 10-gauge, sterile scalpel is used during this procedure.
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.
