5 things you should know before booking a dermaplaning treatment

Dermaplaning helps reduce hyperpigmentation and tighten loose skin. In other words, it helps your face look younger.

The procedure itself is quick and easy, but there are a few things you should know before you book your treatment.

  1. Dermaplaning isn’t designed for all types of skin

If you have very dry skin, fine lines, or sun damage, you’re the perfect candidate for dermaplaning.

But, the procedure involves a sharp scalpel, which could affect acne flare-ups and conditions like psoriasis.

  1. No downtime needed

During your treatment, all your dead skin cells are shaved off. This can result in slight redness, but that’s as bad as it gets.

Dermaplaning is another lunchtime procedure that takes just 40 minutes to an hour. Afterward, you can carry on with your day, no time necessary!

  1. Results last up to 4 weeks

Dermaplaning is so effective that your skin will remain radiant and fuzz-free for up to 4 weeks post-treatment.

However, you’ll need to keep up with your treatments on a monthly basis if you want to maintain the results.

  1. Your hair won’t grow back darker or thicker

Despite what you may have read or heard, dermaplaning won’t make your hair grow back darker or thicker. In fact, since the hair is cut straight across, it grows back the same texture as before. While it may seem thicker, that’s because the hair is bluntly cut by the razor, but it really isn’t any thicker than before treatment.

  1. It’s a great option for your makeup and your skin

Dermaplaning gets rid of facial hair that sometimes prickles through your foundation. During treatment, the razor removes even the tiniest hairs on your face, ensuring a smooth canvas for your foundation.

What’s more, the treatment gets rid of dead skin cells, which means your skincare products can penetrate deeper and faster, enhancing the effectiveness of your products and boosting results.

Final Word

Dermaplaning is usually performed with a surgical scalpel, not a regular razor. That’s why it’s important to have the treatment done at the clinic and not attempt to do it on your own.
