5 Things to Know Before Dermaplaning Your Face

dermaplaning skin

Dermaplaning is steadily becoming popular amongst skin care enthusiasts. A zero-pain, high gain procedure, dermaplaning is extremely effective in deeply exfoliating the skin and removing the outer layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the face. But, what it’s most popular for, is being a pain-free method of removing peach fuzz from the face.

The buildup of microscopic facial fuzz on your face can lead to clogged pores and can cause breakouts. Exfoliation is therefore essential to keeping the skin looking healthy and acne-free. Dermaplaning works wonders not only for removing facial hair but also for acne scar treatment and overall skin rejuvenation. It can remove the outer flaky, dull surface of your face and brighten your complexion noticeably.

If you’ve made the smart choice of going in for a dermaplaning session, here are 5 things you should know.

1.      Dermaplaning will not result in thicker hair growth

Because the treatment involves using a surgical scalpel to essentially ‘shave’ off the peach fuzz, people may associate the shaving aspect with a thicker hair re-growth. But that is not the case.

Once the hair starts to come back, it may feel as if it’s thicker, but that’s only because it was cut straight across. It’s not actually thicker afterwards.

2.     Dermaplaning will allow deeper product penetration into the skin

When you’re applying makeup or any skin care product on your face, a lot of it doesn’t go deep into the skin because the product is caught by the peach fuzz on your face. With dermaplaning, these microscopic hair are removed which leads to a significantly smoother makeup application. Skincare products also work more effectively since they’re being allowed to penetrate deeply into the skin.

3.     Dermaplaning will require you to diligently use SPF post-procedure

Once the procedure is completed, your skin will feel raw, so to speak, for a few days and will be highly sensitive to sunlight.

So, if you’re outside in the sun for a prolonged period of time, remember to protect your skin using a good sunblock. Failure to do so may result in skin damage.

4.     Dermaplaning results can last up to four weeks

The procedure is so effective that your skin will stay fuzz-free and radiant for a whole month after getting dermaplaning done. But you need to keep up with it and schedule monthly appointments to maintain the results.

5.     Don’t trust everyone to correctly perform the procedure

It is recommended that you go to a professional medi spa to get dermaplaning done rather than doing it yourself or getting it done from an untrained person. Schedule an appointment with an aesthetician to ensure the finest and safest results.
