Everything You Want & Need to Know About Dermaplaning
It seems like Hollywood stars have all the secrets to great skin care. They never have a zit and their skin always looks perfectly dewy and glowing. What’s their secret and how do we get in on it? It’s actually really simple! Dermaplaning has been revealed as one of the best-kept beauty secrets in Hollywood! There’s even been a rumor going around for decades that Elizabeth Taylor used to shave her face to get rid of unwanted “peach fuzz” and keep her skin silky smooth.
The In-Depth Scoop on Dermaplaning
Today’s skincare experts have found additional benefits to shaving the face, but have created a process that is more effective and safe: Dermaplaning! Dermaplaning is a type of facial treatment in which your aesthetician uses a surgical scalpel (don’t worry, it’s totally safe and actually amazing once you know about it) to gently scrape the surface of your skin. What it does is remove dead skin cells and take the peach fuzz on your face away – this then allows for better absorption of skin care products. Not only does it clear up any excess dead skin that could clog your pores, it’s a glowing skin tool superstar!
Removing the microscopic hairs on your face and clearing out your pores is the dermaplaning form of exfoliation that cannot be achieved by any other type of facial. Plus, no longer having peach fuzz on your face will show you an incredible difference in how your makeup looks! No more prominent hairs contrasting against your foundation or setting powder. Your face will be so soft and smooth while also benefiting from products far more than ever before.
Myths & Facts about Dermaplaning
MYTH: BUT WON’T MY HAIR GROW BACK DARKER AND THICKER?
Nope! It’s not true that shaving will cause your facial hair to grow back thicker and darker. Your hair will grow back at the same rate and have the same texture it had before the procedure. In fact, your hair might even appear more fine than before.
MYTH: MY SKIN IS TOO DARK FOR DERMAPLANING
Wrong again! Dermaplaning is safe for any skin type. Unlike laser treatments or facial peels, Dermaplaning can benefit people with darker complexions. Wearing sunscreen is recommened following any facials to help avoid pigmentation.
MYTH: IT’S GOING TO HURT!
Hearing that a scalpel is going to be used on your face automatically makes you think that pain must be part of the procedure. Not true! Dermaplaning treatment is performed very quickly without causing any pain.
FACT: DERMAPLANING SPEEDS UP CELL TURNOVER
Around age 30, skin’s natural exfoliation process goes from every two weeks to once every 40 days. No one wants their complexion to suffer due to dead skin cells hanging around! Dermaplaning gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the vibrant, supple skin underneath. Your skin will glow with radiance and fine lines will be diminished.
