Exfoliation helps to maintain skin health.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that involves gently scraping the surface of your skin with a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and peach fuzz. So, basically, it’s like shaving your face.
The results can vary for everyone, but realistically, you can expect to see smoother skin, zero peach fuzz (until it grows back, of course), and slightly brighter-looking skin. And because you’re removing all your dead skin cells, your skincare products will better penetrate your skin when you apply them, making them all the more effective. Dermaplaning can help keep acne at bay. A buildup of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause pimples but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin, which is why exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THIS DONE?
This is a nice treatment performed monthly, or you may just want to have crisper looking photos for a special occasion, which you tend to get when you lose the peach fuzz.
CAN ANYONE HAVE IT DONE?
If you have highly reactive, sensitive skin (like those with rosacea or keratosis pilaris), you may want to pass on this one, since it might irritate your skin. Same goes for anyone with inflamed acne as sliding a sharp scalpel over your spots can irritate them and worsen existing breakouts.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Some light redness can be expected but not always. It’s fine to have this as a lunchtime procedure, but if you can bear it, it’s good to leave make up off straight after, as your skin will be more sensitive just then.
Post-exfoliation, your skin will be especially susceptible to the sun, so do take sun protection seriously, using a non comedogenic (won’t block pores) skinblock. We always recommend Heliocare. For everyone. Everyday! Just saying…
