Five reasons to try Dermaplaning immediately
If you are looking for a new way to rejuvenate your skin and give yourself a radiant glow, consider Dermaplaning at Seattle Plastic Surgery Center. Never heard of it? No problem, we’ve got you covered. Here are the top five reasons you should try Dermaplaning for your next exfoliation facial treatment:
1. Dermaplaning eliminates your chin hair, aka peach fuzz or vellus hair
Dermaplaning is a procedure used to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin by gently scraping a scalpel blade across tightened skin. The treatment, also called the Scalpel Facial or Blading, is performed at Seattle Plastic Surgery Center with a sterile blade using feather-like strokes against the skin. The gentle strokes of the scalpel shave off weeks’ worth of dead skin and vellus hair (peach fuzz). If you have always wanted a soft, smooth, hairless face and chin, Dermaplaning is a perfect skin resurfacing solution. With Dermaplaning, your facial hair will not grow back thicker or darker, and your skin will rejuvenate at an accelerated rate, promoting a continuously healthy, beautiful glow.
2. It primes and smooths your skin for upcoming events or photoshoots
Once all of the peach fuzz and dead skin have been delicately scraped off, your skin will be extremely soft and smooth. Makeup artists often recommend Dermaplaning as a priming technique for celebrities and models for high-definition photo shoots, since it makes the skin fresh for ideal makeup application. The underlayer of brand new skin that is uncovered during a Dermaplaning exfoliation treatment gives a glowing, hydrated appearance.
3. There is little to no downtime, unlike other exfoliation alternatives
Dermaplaning is performed only on the face, avoiding the finer, usually hairless skin of the eyelids, lips, and nose. The procedure can be repeated every three to four weeks with no down time post-treatment. Unlike a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, your skin may immediately appear brighter, fresher, and more flawless. Generally side effects may include sensitivity to the sun for a few days following treatment, or a minor pinkness or tenderness after the treatment.
4. It’s simple; Dermaplaning is a quick process in experienced hands
The treatment takes about as little as 10-30 minutes to complete, and involves only a few minutes of skin preparation. What matters the most is how skilled your esthetician is at Dermaplaning, and that the new blade used is of the highest quality. When performed by a double board-certified Master Esthetician, the side effects and downtime involved with Seattle Dermaplaning can be minimized greatly.
5. It’s safe; no harsh chemicals or products are applied to your skin
Since Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation, it promotes the cell turnover cycle that slows down as you age. When your cell turnover cycle is slower, dead skin builds up, which accelerates the appearance of aging and prevents products from penetrating into the layers of the skin. Unlike other facial exfoliation methods such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, there are no chemicals being applied during the treatment. This means Dermaplaning is safe for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Since this procedure will rid the skin of dead skin cells and vellus hairs (aka peach fuzz), Dermaplaning can also be added to your regular skincare regimen for enhanced results from other facial treatments, including traditional facials, chemical peels, and enzyme masks.
In short, here are the five reasons you should try Dermaplaning immediately:
- No more peach fuzz!
- Smooth, prime skin for perfect makeup application
- Little to no downtime before results
- Quick and simple procedure
- Safe and free of chemicals
If your skin looks dull, sun-damaged, dry, or fuzzy, Dermaplaning can help. If you are sensitive to the chemicals or abrasive additives used in other facial treatments, Dermaplaning might be a great, simple addition to your skincare routine. If you hate your peach fuzz or other facial hair, consider Dermaplaning- it won’t come back thicker or darker, and you will love your skin’s new smooth surface. Dermaplaning is not recommended for those with cystic acne or current acneic breakouts.
