We all know that a good exfoliation can do wonders for our skin, creating a smoother, more radiant texture. However, if you want to really uplevel that smoothness, a dermaplaning treatment could be exactly what you’re after.
Dermaplaning is a safe facial treatment that exfoliates the top layers of the skin using a specialised blade. It’s designed to freshen the skin by removing not just dead skin cells and debris, but also fine vellus hair (also called ‘peach fuzz’). It’s this distinct point of difference that has people raving about it, especially as preparation for a special event.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
We explore some of the reasons why clients love this treatment below.
- Smooths rough, textured skin
The unique method of using a specialised blade means that dermaplaning is an exceptional method of exfoliation. Skin is thoroughly treated to remove congestion and even out tone, revealing fresher skin underneath. Your face is left feeling smooth and supple to the touch.
- Creates the perfect makeup base
Applying makeup has never been easier than right after a dermaplaning session. Since all the tiny hairs have been removed, you have a totally blank, smooth canvas!
- Improves penetration of skincare
With all the congestion removed, your skincare can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin much more easily. This helps you to get the best results and value of the products you’ve invested in.
- Delivers a radiant glow
With the top layers of the skin fully exfoliated, your face is completely refreshed! You’ll enjoy the kind of healthy glow that brightens skin and leaves you feeling amazing.
- Removes ‘peach fuzz’
If the tiny hairs on your face annoy you or are perhaps more prominent than you’d like, dermaplaning will clear them right away, giving you a super smooth, hairless complexion. And before you worry that they’ll grow back thicker or darker, this is not the case. Vellus hair is different to regular hair so it’ll regrow in a similar way as before your treatment.
How long does Dermaplaning take?
A dermaplaning treatment takes around 25 minutes. Results are instant and there is no downtime!
Is dermaplaning like shaving?
Before you reach for your razor, Dermaplaning is a specialised treatment that uses a surgical blade that gently glides along the skin at a specific 45 degree angle. This treatment should only be performed by a trained Dermal Technician in a clean clinic environment with a sterile blade to avoid risks such as skin irritation, cuts or infection.
What about at-home dermaplaning?
Although at-home dermaplaning tools are available in the market, we strongly recommend that this treatment is done by a trained professional for the reasons outlined above.
What should I do after dermaplaning?
The most important thing to do is protect your freshly exfoliated skin. We recommend a non-comedogenic sunscreen such as our Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+ Lotion which is lightweight and hydrating.
Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types and is a fantastic way to achieve fresher, smoother and rejuvenated skin. If you’re interested in this treatment, call us or contact us via our web form to book a free skin assessment with one of our friendly technicians at Australian Skin Clinics today.
