Requiring the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel that will carefully and gently shave away the top layer of skin from the surface is a physical exfoliation procedure known as dermaplaning. The fine, vellus hair, most know as peach fuzz along with the top-most later of dead skin is removed during this treatment. This procedure is recommended to be scheduled monthly, it only takes 30 minutes, and it there is no downtime post-treatment. Despite dermaplaning being done exclusively on the face, the vellus hairs are the only hair treated, as the nose hairs are avoided along; and this treatment does not shape eyebrows as they are terminal hairs. Performing the treatment, depending on the state’s regulations, are the estheticians, nurses, or doctors. In Waco, TX, it is listed as a medical spa treatment. Today, we at The Skin and Body Refinery would like to further elaborate on dermaplaning.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Because the physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process, the products used during the procedure are utilized to better penetrate the skin. Dermaplaning is an excellent option for those that have an excess of the fine vellus hairs, to get rid of this nuisance that has a tendency to accumulate oil and dirt. Contrary to myth, vellus hairs will not grow back thicker or darker, like the terminal hair that can appear to do so. Microdermabrasion, another popular physical skin exfoliation doesn’t get rid of the peach fuzz. The result of the removal of dead cells and fine hairs delivers healthier, brighter and smoother skin.

Optimal Candidates of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is especially effective as it contributes to minimizing superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone and those with dry or rough skin texture. Tending to have a buildup of dead cells is also a good candidate as the cellular turnover slows down with age and mature skin. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients, unlike chemical peels. People should not have this procedure if they combat thick, dark facial hair and those prone with oily skin or active acne. Causing sensitivity and soreness, dermaplaning has a tendency to irritate skin that is prone to acne. In addition to noticeable stubble that is obvious when clients with excessive facial hair try this procedure, “razor rashes” being spots under the skin and ingrown hairs can occur.

Dermaplaning VS Shaving

This requires a specific technique, with carefully, delicate touch and skilled approach to resurface skin who performs dermaplaning, and it takes licensing and certification, depending on the state guidelines. This is a procedure not available for in-home applications. Where many people compare it to shaving, unlike shaving where the average razor has two blades duller than surgical blades, dermaplaning is performed freehand with a surgical scalpel. Depending on the facial region, a methodical approach is applied, which is short strokes at specific angles in particular patterns.
