Celebrities often have beautiful skin with a wonderful glow to it. You may think it’s the makeup that’s making them look so good. Well, that’s one part of the story. The other part is dermaplaning. You might not have heard of it, but you have definitely seen its results.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of manually exfoliating the skin by using a 10-gauge scalpel to carefully remove the top layer of dead skin cells and unwanted fine hairs. Through this method, the patient can attain smoother skin and a brighter complexion. The whole process is over quite quickly and is painless.

Is It Safe?

This procedure is an extremely safe and chemical-free method of delicately resurfacing the skin. After the treatment, there is a very small chance that the skin may have a bit of redness, but this is only temporary and ameliorates quickly.

Who Can Get Dermaplaning?

As long as you don’t suffer from acne, dermaplaning is right for you. Dermaplaning is approved for all skin types. People with extremely sensitive skin or pregnant women can also undergo this treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning effectively removes the outer layer of dead skin, making the skin much smoother than before. This treatment offers numerous benefits:

No Downtime
Unlike with many other exfoliation methods, there isn’t any downtime for this procedure. Most people have no trouble getting back to their daily activities immediately after undergoing dermaplaning. Like injectable treatments, this is a lunchtime procedure, meaning it can be completed in a very short time, like over one’s lunch break. It doesn’t disrupt your day in any way.

Improved Penetration by Skin Products
Dead skin cells don’t benefit from the skin products you use, reducing these products’ effectiveness. With dermaplaning, up to 21 weeks of dead skin cells are out of the way, allowing skin products to penetrate farther into the skin, making them more efficient and useful.

Healthy and Glowing Skin
Dermaplaning can give patients a more youthful look. It helps spark the development of new collagen and elastin proteins in the tissues of your face, making your skin look healthier. It reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, sunken eyes, wrinkles, and laugh lines naturally.

Ability to Be Combined with Other Skin Treatment Procedures
If other skin treatments like laser resurfacing and micro-dermabrasion remain ineffective, get a dermaplaning done; it can improve the results drastically.

Removal of Vellus Hairs
Dermaplaning removes the fine vellus hairs known as peach fuzz, making it easier to apply makeup evenly. It will also not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.
