One of the most popular procedures among the actresses and models in the entertainment industry is called dermaplaning.
This is because the procedure completely eliminates the peach fuzz or vellus hair on the face. This is what causes cosmetics to cake up. Unfortunately this becomes apparent due to the high-definition cameras and the harsh lighting. In addition to eliminating the peach fuzz, this technique also removes the dead skin cells. The result is extremely smooth skin. Skincare products are able to penetrate the skin much better, cosmetics glide on smoothly and the face appears flawless. The treatment is often used prior to cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels and laser treatments to increase the effectiveness. The process is safe and simple, removing the fine vellus hair and exfoliating the skin.
The treatment is a type of exfoliation. The procedure uses a scalpel to gently scrape the dead and dull skin cells from the top layer of your skin. This enables the emergence of a much brighter and smoother complexion. The process has been used for many years by countless aesthetic professionals. If you are not familiar with this treatment, you are not the only one. Unfortunately, there are still far too many individuals unfamiliar with dermaplaning. You may also be among the those who have confused dermaplaning with dermabrasion. The two procedures are completely different. Dermabrasion is classified as a medical procedure as opposed to cosmetic. A device much like a whisk is used to abrade the skin. Dermaplaning is simply an effective and beneficial procedure used to gently scrape the skin.
The procedure is fast, has no adverse effects, and has become extremely popular throughout the country. The process requires an aesthetic professional with a delicate touch and skill with a scalpel. Light, feathery strokes are used to gently abrade the surface of your skin. The treatment is an exceptional option for women who are nursing or pregnant and want to have a deep exfoliation. This is because these women are not able to use any type of peeling agent. This is due to the risk the chemicals will be absorbed and reach the bloodstream. The chemicals can then be inadvertently transferred to the child or the fetus. The procedure is also an excellent choice if you have too much peach fuzz on your face. This often results in an accumulation of oils and dirt in the follicles. Once the hair is removed, your skin appears healthier.
One of the oldest and patently false misconceptions regarding this procedure is the hair is going to grow back darker and thicker than prior to the treatment. The reason this is nothing more than a myth is because vellus hair grows back in the exact same texture and rate it was before the procedure. The other purpose of the treatment is to enjoy the benefit of an immediate exfoliation leading to luminous skin that will glow for an entire week. Your skin will have a smoother texture, appear dewy and your cell turnover will increase. If you have ever had a deep chemical peel or laser treatment, chances are you are already familiar with this treatment. Numerous medical professionals recommend having this procedure prior to either of these treatments. This is because it enables the products to penetrate into your skin more efficiently.
The motion of the scalpel exfoliates while it is removing your peach fuzz. It is important to note that wearing a high quality sunscreen after your treatment is incredibly important. This is because your skin will be very sensitive to hyperpigmentation from the sun after your treatment. If you have any undesirable hair on your face, this is the ideal and safe solution. The treatment is even beneficial if you have extremely sensitive skin because this is not one of the exfoliating procedures or products that are not appropriate for your skin. Think of this as an option for lightly resurfacing your skin. The procedure is not painful. There is only one possible side effect, redness. If you experience this, it will fade away naturally and almost instantly. One of the best aspects is the treatment will not damage your skin.
When your skin is exfoliated, the regeneration of your cells is triggered. This removes your peach fuzz, enables better penetration of your cosmetics and skin care products, and eliminates the oil and dirt trapped in the vellus hair. Although microdermabrasion will exfoliate your skin, the process will not remove the fine hairs. Once these hairs have been eliminated, your skin will be brighter, healthier and look and feel smoother. The treatment is especially good for skin with a rough or dry texture because it helps to decrease an uneven skin tone and superficial acne. It is important to note this procedure is not recommended if you currently have moderate to severe acne. Mature skin benefits from the treatment due to the slower turnover of cells due to age and the dead skin cell buildup.
Dermaplaning is safe for the majority of individuals unable to have a chemical peel. It is important to understand the technique requires both a skillful touch and a delicate technique to correctly resurface your skin. Shaving at home will not achieve the same results and is not recommended. Although there are kits available, the process is completely different than shaving, requires the use of a surgical scalpel and is performed freehand. The dual blades on most razors are a lot duller. The scalpel is extremely sharp and applied to stretched skin. Short strokes must be used at a precise angle along with specific patterns for each area of the face. The kits meant for home use are not recommended for all of these reasons.
The Benefits of Dermaplaning
The procedure is a lot more effective than simply shaving the face due to the type of blade. The blade provides an exceptional result because of the sharpness. The main reason the majority of individuals decide to have this procedure is as a means of removing hair. This is just one of numerous benefits. The procedure removes the dead skin cells. Unlike the majority of techniques commonly used for exfoliation, the process is non-abrasive and does not require the use of chemicals. This means even if you have sensitive skin, you can still enjoy the appearance and feel of naturally smooth and flawless skin. The process additionally minimizes your pores. Pores are simply an opening enabling the emergence of hair. When oil and dirt accumulate in your pores, they enlarge. The procedure decreases the size of the pores.
It is important to understand the term anti-aging. This does not mean a reversal of skin aging. Anti-aging is simply preventing any further damage from being caused to your skin while decreasing the damage that has already occurred. This is what enables your skin to appear as more youthful and fresher. Dermaplaning decreases the effect of acne scars, hyperpigmentation and fine lines because the layer of dead skin is removed. When your skin appears revitalized and youthful, it is referred to as anti-aging. The key issue with the majority of hair removal treatments such as tweezing, lasers and waxing is they are painful. Unfortunately they often result in ingrown hairs. This treatment is proof getting rid of unwanted hair does not have to cause pain. Not only is the procedure free of pain, most people find it very relaxing.
The treatment stands out from the other procedures because it is non-invasive. There is no trauma or harm to your skin. There is no downtime or period of recovery necessary. Once you leave after your treatment, you simply go right back to what you were doing before the procedure. All you really need to do is apply a gentle cleanser to your face the night of your treatment. Your skin will look and feel absolutely wonderful. Your cosmetics will glide on smoothly and evenly. Your skin care products will be more effective due to the deeper penetration. You will be impressed with the quality and appearance of your skin.
The Specifics of Dermaplaning
Your treatment begins with a thorough cleansing and drying of your skin by the aesthetic professional. A section of your skin will be pulled taught with one hand, while the other applies a ten gauge, sterile blade. The blade is held at a 45-degree angle. The peach fuzz and dead skin cells are scraped off with swift, short strokes. In most cases, the procedure only requires thirty minutes or less. There is no downtime with the only possible side effect being a slight redness that will fade away almost immediately. Your skin will be extremely sensitive to the sun after your treatment. You need to use a broad-spectrum, high-quality sunscreen. You will immediately notice the radiance of your skin, the improved texture, and a more even skin tone.
All of the vellum hair on your face will be gone. This is the reason your skin will feel amazingly soft. The treatment eliminates a 21 day accumulation of dead skin cells. For this reason, your skin should be allowed to complete the natural rejuvenation cycle prior to having another treatment. It is important to have this treatment performed by an experienced and skilled professional. Numerous individuals ask how long the professional has been providing this treatment and approximately how many procedures they have performed. Any legitimate practitioner will not mind answering these questions. Due to the sharpness of the blade, both skill and experience are incredibly important. It is just as important to remain completely still during your procedure.
If you have resilient skin, you can combine your treatment with microdermabrasion for truly sensational results. It is also important to note you do not need to have any concerns regarding having the vellum hair removed from your face. This is the extremely fine and soft white or clear hair on your face. The texture and thickness will grow back at the same rate after this procedure. Your exfoliation is both safe and effective, enabling all of your skin care products to penetrate much deeper. This will enhance the results you receive from using the same products. The appearance of any acne scars will be diminished with your skin looking and feeling softer. Any oil or dirt trapped in the peach fuzz will be eliminated right along with the hair to improve the size of your pores.
If you have active acne, you must have your acne successfully treated prior to having this procedure. The treatment will prevent new pimples from forming as well as clogged pores once your acne is no longer active. When there is less dead skin, the amount of breakouts are significantly decreased. The night of your treatment, apply a gentle cleanser to your skin. You can also use a warm, soft face cloth to gently remove any cosmetics or dead skin on the surface. Gently pat your skin dry prior to applying a light moisturizer. This type of skin care routine will help improve the appearance and condition of your skin within a fairly short period of time. You should not use cosmetics right after your session. After gently moisturizing and cleansing your skin the night before, you can use your cosmetics in the morning.
This treatment is also an exfoliation. You may see a decrease in the look of wrinkles and fine lines after a few sessions. If your peach fuzz is a bit darker, the brightness of your skin will be even more apparent. If the texture of you skin is rough or dry, this procedure will be exceptionally effective. This is because an uneven skin tone and superficial acne scarring is often minimized. The procedure is effective, fast and provides good results. For the best possible results, your treatments should be scheduled apart by two to four weeks.
