Dermaplaning procedure

Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.”

What Is Dermaplaning?

Many women suffer from unwanted facial hair. It begins to grow due to age-related changes and hormonal disruptions or can be genetically determined. Now, many want to try a new way to remove facial hair, called dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning is a procedure for scraping off the superficial stratum corneum of the skin on the face at an angle of 45 degrees using a special blade. As a bonus, vellus hair is also removed, and the skin microrelief is leveled and smoothed, so your favorite serums and creams are absorbed into the skin and work much better.

Dermaplaning is similar to shaving, but unlike a typical razor, a scalpel blade cuts hair and several layers of skin. Thus, the hairs are cut closer to the root, and regrown hairs do not appear as quickly as after a regular shave. In addition to the rejuvenating effect, women note that the hairs grow back after about two weeks.

In dermaplaning, proper disinfection is essential to avoid negative consequences. It is best to contact a Light Touch Permanent Makeup Studio technician because we do care about your safety. After preliminary preparation, our technician gently moves the scalpel over the face for 15-30 minutes. It may feel like a face peel. Finally, the correct procedure involves the removal of vellus hair and the upper layer of the epidermis, altogether with dead cells.

Precautionary Measures

  • After the procedure, keep your skin clean (clean pillowcases, towels, and better – disposable paper napkins).
  • Avoid aggressive care within two weeks, preferably a month after the procedure: no products with retinol, scrubs, peels, or alcohol-containing lotions.
  • Be sure to use products with an SPF of at least 30 without nanoparticles.
  • Provide powerful hydration to the skin. Creams with ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids are the best.

Light Touch Permanent Makeup Studio does not recommend dermaplaning as a home treatment! It may be unsafe.

Optimal Treatment Frequency

Even if dermaplaning near me was performed perfectly and accurately without consequences, it should not be used more than once a month. This interval is associated with the timing of the renewal of the epidermis.

As a kind of peel, dermaplaning has many advantages over chemical peels and laser resurfacing, which can cause allergic reactions, skin irritation, or burns. The skin remains smooth and better absorbs the nutrients in your facial products. For the best effect and complete safety, this procedure must be performed only in a reliable studio with an experienced professional master – Light Touch Permanent Makeup Studio in Canada. Otherwise, the risk of infections and skin damage will be very high.
