Taking great care of your skin and keeping it soft, subtle, and glowing requires a combination of treatments customized for your skin type. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to improve skin tone and texture and help individuals who suffer from chronic skin issues such as acne and eczema. Are you interested in making Dermaplaning part of your regular skincare routine? Skin & Body Refinery experts have provided the following information about the many benefits of Dermaplaning and how it can help improve your skin.

Is Dermaplaning the Same as Shaving?

Your skin cells regenerate monthly, but as your skin produces these new cells, it doesn’t eliminate the old ones, making skin look dull and lackluster. Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that uses a sharp blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hairs (peach fuzz) to even skin tone and texture. Dermaplaning can also be used to combat the effects of chronic skin disorders, including acne and eczema, improve skin appearance, and aid in treating hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Dermaplaning treatments are typically applied to the face, chin, and neck areas.
Shaving the face removes vellus hair while dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells, with the added benefit of also removing vellus hairs.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

There are many products and procedures on the market that can help improve the appearance of your skin. Each option has several benefits, especially when combined with other skincare techniques. The benefits of dermaplaning facials include:
• Soft, healthy skin without the use of harsh exfoliants that can cause irritation and inflammation.
• Increase collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and improve skin elasticity.
• Remove dead skin cells to expose new healthy skin cells, which aids in the absorption of skincare products to improve the skin’s overall appearance and keep skin healthy.
• Requires no downtime.
• Works well for any skin type, even those individuals with sensitive skin.
• Help prevent acne breakouts and clogged pores when the procedure is used as part of a regular skincare routine.
• Aids in the smooth application of cosmetics to resist clumping.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a great option regardless of your skin types and is beneficial to the health of your skin, even those who suffer from skin sensitivity. Skin & Body Refinery esthetician will guide you through the process to help you decide if the procedure is the correct one for you. Dermaplaning works for both men and women. If you have uneven skin tone and texture, your make up appears uneven or patchy, your moisturizer and other products appear to sit on the surface of the skin instead of absorbing, or if you have age spots or sun spots, patches of dry skin, or peach fuzz, Dermaplaning is an excellent procedure to improve the appearance and health of your skin.

How Often Can You Dermaplane?

For optimal results, Dermaplaning should be performed every 4-6 weeks. Cell turnover begins to drastically slow down as we age, leaving skin dry with a dull, uneven appearance. Dermaplanning is an excellent procedure to improve skin tone, clarity, and texture to leave you with a glowing complexion.
