8 Things To Know Before Dermaplaning Your Face
Did you even feel as though your face could use more than a good scrub? Dermaplaning may be the answer you’re looking for.
Dermaplaning is the new exfoliation. Extremely effective, it’s practiced by a doctor or a dermatologist, using a surgical grade scalpel.
The scalpel is drawn gently across your face to remove dead skin cells and the peach fuzz you which covers the face. This peach fuzz and the dead skin cells which don’t come off with washing can make your skin appear dull.
Here are 8 things to know before dermaplaning your face.
1. Outbreak? Wait Awhile
If you’re experiencing an acne outbreak or have broken skin, wait until the situation improves before trying dermaplaning. Otherwise, the treatment is effective for all types and tones of skin.
2. Hair Will Grow Back Normally
While your hair may feel different once it grows back, nothing has changed. The myth which states your hair will grow back thicker and darker is just that – a myth.
3. No Downtime
After your 40-minute dermaplaning treatment, you can go right back to what you were doing. You can even dermaplane on your lunch hour!
Some people experience minor redness, but this isn’t always the case.
4. Wear SPF Religiously
Following dermaplaning, your skin will be denuded of the peach fuzz which usually covers it, as well as dead skin cells. That means you should be diligent about using at least a 30 SPF sunscreen. If you’re cavalier about sun exposure, this treatment isn’t for you.
5. Smooth as Silk
With all that underbrush and detritus off your face, putting on your makeup will feel amazing. Your skin is silky smooth following a dermaplaning treatment.
You’ll also find that your skincare is more effective without those barriers between skin products and your dermis.
6. A Month of Smooth
Your skin will look and feel incredible for a full 4 weeks following treatment. To maintain those silky smooth results, though, you’ll need to schedule an appointment regularly.
7. Go to a Professional
Thinking about trying this at a boiler room operation? Don’t do it. Only an accredited medical aesthetician or dermatologist (like those at DRC360) should perform dermaplaning.
8. Not a DIY Treatment
As we’re sure you’ll understand, there’s a certain amount of skill involved in drawing a surgical scalpel across the face, so this is not a DIY treatment.
Don’t try it at home!
