5 Reasons Why You’ll Love Dermaplaning
Chances are your summer is already packed full of fun plans, from family vacations to backyard barbecues, so the last thing you want to be worried about is taking a step back to recover from a skincare treatment. Luckily, we have the perfect option for smooth, supple skin without any downtime to take you away from summer fun: Dermaplaning! Dermaplaning creates the perfect blank slate for other services, making them even more effective, and giving you a glowing look that will outshine the summer sun.
Here are five reasons you’ll love dermaplaning — and one important tip for keeping your younger-looking skin healthy:
Enjoy a Clean, Blank Slate for Other Services
Dermaplaning uses a small, sterile blade to essentially “shave” the face, removing a layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This non-abrasive, painless approach leaves the surface of the skin smoother than ever, making it easier for other skincare products and treatments to more efficiently and deeply penetrate the skin. Plus, a flawless face means your makeup will go on perfectly, too ( not that you’ll need much after trying some of our other top-notch skincare services)!
A Softer Appearance Without Irritation or Redness
Sensitive skin and trying to avoid chemicals? Dermaplaning might be the solution for you! For this service, our resident skincare expert and medical aesthetician, Amy, uses a medical-grade scalpel to closely remove dead skin cells and gently exfoliate your face without the use of chemicals or other tools. While it may sound simple, this is not one you want to try at home — an untrained hand and improper tools could cause serious harm to your skin’s health and appearance.
Smoother, Younger-looking Skin
By removing excess dead skin cells — which can give skin a dull appearance — you’ll immediately notice a brighter, more revitalized look. Dermaplaning’s exfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne scars. Smoother skin means younger-looking skin, turning back the clock on damage that’s been done and helping to prevent it in the future.
No Need to Stay Home Due to Recovery
Dermaplaning is one of the best ways to immediately see a difference in your skin’s appearance without feeling like you need time for recovery. This irritation-free treatment means there is no downtime, so you can get back out to summertime events with friends and family (and don’t be surprised if they ask how you achieved your brighter glow).
Results Last for Weeks
Dermaplaning removes weeks’ worth of dead skin cells, meaning results can last up to three months. We recommend having it done once a month, to maintain your rejuvenated look — especially since your skin’s natural regeneration cycle is about 30 days.
Tip: Be Even More Vigilant About Sunscreen Application
Post-exfoliation, you will need to be even more conscious of applying sunscreen and protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. That can be difficult at this time of year, when most of us spend even longer outdoors. Just be sure to include sunscreen application in your daily routine (a few times a day), and you will keep your skin healthy and young.
Dermaplaning is simple in nature and brings about younger-looking skin in minutes, but, as always, it is best to have it done by a professional who has years of experience. Plus, once your dermaplaning session is done, Amy can help you craft the perfect skincare regimen just for you! Reach out today and book an appointment to try this smoothing treatment.
