How does dermaplaning rejuvenate the skin?

Would you like smooth, glowing, youthful skin?  More and more people are turning to dermaplaning to achieve the smoother, clearer skin they desire, and it may be just what you need to revitalize your skin.   Understanding how dermaplaning rejuvenates the skin will help to determine if it’s the right treatment for you.  

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive skin treatment in which a medical-grade scalpel is used to shave the skin, to remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).  The skin is held taut during treatment, and the blade is used to gently exfoliate the outer layer.  

Dermaplaning is a quick, simple procedure that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.  The skin will look brighter and more radiant immediately after treatment.  There is no downtime after dermaplaning, so clients can get back to their normal activities right away.

How does dermaplaning rejuvenate the skin?

The skin looks rejuvenated after dermaplaning because it strips away the outer layers of skin, revealing the healthy, fresher looking skin beneath.

Dermaplaning also boosts collagen.  Removing the top layer of skin triggers the skin’s natural wound healing process, and stimulates the production of collagen.  Collagen is an important protein that firms the skin, and keeps it looking youthful.

In addition, dermaplaning improves the texture of the skin by exfoliating built-up dead skin cells and other debris that make the surface look uneven.  

Dermaplaning also leaves the skin smoother and softer.  Since the rough skin is out of the way it makes it much easier to apply makeup to the face (learn more).
