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

Is Dermaplaning Safe?

Being unavailable for in-home applications, dermaplaning is performed freehand with a surgical scalpel, though people compare it to shaving. The methodology approach is short strokes at specific angles in particular patterns depends on the facial region are required for the methodology approach.

A good candidate tends to have a buildup of dead cell as the cellular turnover slows down with age, mature skin. Unlike the chemical peels, Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients and suitable for all ages.

Dermaplaning Contradictions

Dermaplaning has a tendency to irritate skin that is prone to acne, which leads to sensitivity and soreness. When clients with excessive facial hair try this procedure, “razor rashes” are spots under the skin and ingrown in addition to noticeable stubble is obvious.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

The products used during the procedure are allowed to better penetrate the skin due to the physical exfoliation triggered in the cell regeneration process. To get rid of this nuisance that has a tendency to accumulate oil and dirt, dermaplaning is an excellent option for those that have an excess of the fine vellus. Much like the terminal hair that can appear, contrary to myth, vellus hairs will not grow back thicker or darker.
