What is dermaplaning and is it right for you?
Dermaplaning is a skincare procedure involving manual exfoliation to remove a layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (also called peach fuzz)This treatment requires a skilled skin specialist to handle a sharp and sterile surgical blade, which gently glides over the skin at a 45-degree angle, drawing away all the dead skin cells and fine facial hairs, leaving the surface extremely smooth and radiant. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, and assists in reducing milia and minor breakouts associated with congested pores. Clean and smooth skin, free of dead skin cells and peach fuzz, allows for greater penetration of skincare products also creating a beautifully even surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly.
Peach fuzz can leave skin looking dull, as it traps oils and debris and leaves them clinging to the skin – once the fine hairs and dead skin cells are removed, your skin will feel fantastically clean and healthy. This treatment is an excellent way to exfoliate the skin and regenerate new skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, soft, and vibrant. It is an extremely safe, painless, and effective treatment for most skin types – dermaplaning can also help to improve the appearance of acne-scarred skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Some people are concerned that the removal of the vellus hairs (peach fuzz) will mean that the hair grows back thicker, coarser and darker. This is not the case, vellus hair cannot change into terminal hair (beard-type hair). As this is not a permanent method of hair removal, the hairs will regrow but only as the same vellus hair as before. Laser hair removal is not an option for very fine or light hair, so dermaplaning is one option to help towards a smooth, fuzz-free complexion.
