Many of us desire smooth skin like a baby, even if having a little facial hair is nothing to be embarrassed about. However, using a razor, tweezers, or waxing strip on your face if all you have is some persistent peach fuzz may be a better approach to take.
The most effective method to remove peach fuzz and fine facial hair is often to schedule a professional dermaplaning service. It lessens the possibility of unintended cuts and nicks.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating technique in which a blade removes the top layer of dead skin, debris, and oil from your face. It can lessen the prominence of fine lines, wrinkles, and dull, dry, or sun-damaged skin. It can also aid with acne scars. Additionally, it frequently encourages a perfect makeup application since dermaplaning allows the products to penetrate the skin more deeply.
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a fast, painless technique that improves product absorption and gives your skin a radiant, healthy appearance.
The treatment involves shaving off tiny hairs that collect oil and germs, making it challenging to apply makeup. Dead skin cells and other debris may be removed by your dermaplaning expert, revealing a smooth, radiant shine.
If you have problems with your skin like the ones below, then you might want to consider dermaplaning:
- acne scarring
- scaly skin patches or actinic keratosis, both of which can result in skin cancer
- dull or dry skin
- vellum or peach hair (the light, soft hair on your face that can hinder makeup)
- sun-induced skin damage
- wrinkles and fine lines
Skin is quickly smoothed and brightened after this procedure. After this procedure, there is no recovery period. Your skin may be somewhat red for a few hours, but it will rapidly level out and become brighter. There is no requirement for general anesthesia, although you can request a numbing lotion around 30 minutes before the surgery. Dermaplaning is not painful; however, you can experience stinging or itching on your skin.
What is the process of dermaplaning?
Your treatment will start with a face wash and dry with a towel. We’ll then use the scalpel at a 45-degree angle to make fast strokes over the surface of your skin while holding your skin taut. Usually, we start treating one side of the face—the forehead or jaw—before moving on to the other. Afterward, we’ll apply a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen to finish your treatment.
You’ll feel similar to shaving with a razor when the blade passes over your skin. While the scalpel blade is cutting through the top layer of your skin, you can also hear a whispering sound. Don’t be afraid of getting your skin punctured; you won’t feel any pain. You will be pleasantly reclining throughout your appointment. Some people even fall asleep during their treatments since this is a genuinely soothing and comforting experience.
This procedure takes an hour, and you may resume your usual schedule immediately. Even some people plan to get this procedure during their lunch break. After your session, your skin could initially look a little pink, but that will pass shortly. For the first day following your treatment, when your skin can be more sensitive, it will be essential to use sunscreen and limit your exposure to the sun.
How do you prepare for a dermaplaning session?
This exfoliating procedure gently removes dead skin cells and soft, fine facial hair, leaving your face clean and beautiful. To get the finest skin care treatment results, you need to prepare beforehand.
Here is what you need to do to be ready for your dermaplaning procedure.
Drink lots of water and be hydrated before your dermaplaning procedure.
Your skin has to be hydrated to be healthy; drinking water will help with this. Since dermaplaning is so delicate and painless (most patients rarely feel anything), it is not required to drink during the treatment. Staying hydrated before and after helps reduce any swelling or soreness that may arise afterward.
Check your skin for wounds or scarring.
Before arranging your dermaplaning service, always ensure that any cuts are entirely healed.
A professional may remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair by holding a tiny, sterile blade at an angle while doing dermaplaning. The treatment might interfere with the healing process. Therefore it’s crucial that the skin is healthy before the surgery and that the face is free of scars or sores.
Take a break from your exfoliants.
Assuming no cuts on your face, you proceed with your consultation. The best action is to store any exfoliating remedies and products at home. It is advised to relax for around five days before your dermaplaning treatment.
It would help if you gave your skin time to rejuvenate before getting a maximal exfoliation treatment. Over-exfoliation can result in acne flare-ups, hyper/hypopigmentation, redness, and dry skin.
It could be a bit challenging, but picture how smooth your face will be once the procedure is over. It cleans delicate facial hair of oil and grime and improves the results of other skincare procedures.
Do not wear your makeup.
If you wear makeup and come to our office, we’ll have to take it off. We advise you to avoid makeup altogether in the few hours following your visit. Since it’s much simpler to remove only the surface layer of skin when your face is clean and barren of additional color and moisture, this aids us in ensuring that your skin is at an ambient humidity level.
Protect yourself from the sun.
Remember to wear sunscreen if you have an appointment! Your skin may become more sensitive than usual due to dead skin cells and hair removal. It implies that you should always wear sunscreen whenever you go outside to protect yourself from the sun.
Because of the blemishes, it might leave on your complexion and the potential consequences of UV rays striking your skin, exposure to the sun is discouraged. Dermaplaning clients should exercise much greater caution to avoid the sun.
The face is the most vulnerable to UV damage and sunburn. When going outside during the day, apply sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30, as UV exposure will affect how well your therapy works.
Never. Shave. Before. Dermaplaning.
Shaving before dermaplaning is not advised and is one of the worst preparation methods. It may irritate you and cause razor bumps, so stay away. Shaving before might make it uneven since the blade helps eliminate undesirable dead skin cells and facial hair.
The steps you should take to prepare for your dermaplaning session should be easy. Remember to give your face some attention before the appointment to look its best when the hair and dead skin cells are removed.
To determine whether a client is a good candidate for the process and address any questions or concerns regarding dermaplaning, Flawless Laser and Med Spa always conducts a brief dermaplaning consultation before the treatment. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment!
