Dermaplaning (also known as Dermablading) is a manual way to exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin. This service removes your outer layers of skin and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This leaves behind smooth skin and a bright look. Dermaplaning is a perfect solution for those with excess vellus hair, as this hair can cause a buildup of dirt and oils.
The other option is called microdermabrasion. This process involves applying tiny crystals to the skin to remove the outer layer. It exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin to make it appear brighter and softer. The issue with microdermabrasion is the down time associated with the peeling process.
Dermabrasion is similar to microdermabrasion but is a more aggressive treatment. It involves receiving shots of numbing medicine to your skin. Then a high-speed device with an abrasive wheel is used along the skin to remove the outer layer. Dermabrasion is more effective at improving scars, and pox marks, as well as many moles, birthmarks, or burn scars. Some complications can occur like infections or more scarring.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
This treatment is performed using a fine, sterile surgical blade. It is stroked along the skin, almost like shaving. In the process the outer layer of dead skin is removed. It is a relatively quick treatment, requiring just 15 to 20 minutes to complete. It is recommended to use dermaplaning on your skin about once a month. Dermaplaning is so safe, many women who are pregnant or nursing and wanting a deep exfoliation, can use this procedure. And do not believe the old wive’s tale of hair growing back heavier and darker, this is definitely not the case.
