What is Dermaplaning?
Do you want to give your skin a youthful glow? Removing the top layer of skin cells can reveal fresher, more radiant skin. There are many types of exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, but one of the deeper forms is dermaplaning. With dermaplaning, the cells from the skin’s top layer are scraped away with a scalpel for precise and deep exfoliation. Creative Facial Aesthetics offers dermaplaning as one of our skin rejuvenation treatments at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
The difference between dermaplaning and dermabrasion, chemical peels and other exfoliating methods, is the technique used. With other exfoliation techniques, the top skin layer is stripped away with natural acids, scrubbing or other forms of skin cell removal. Dermaplaning uses a small, sharp blade to “shave” off the skin cells and peach fuzz on the skin. Some of the reasons this procedure is popular are the benefits over other types of exfoliation, including:
- No harsh chemicals or scrubbing
- Removes peach fuzz for smoother skin
- Almost immediate skin radiance
- Precise treatment for reducing acne scars
- No down time and non-invasive
- Better makeup adhesion due to peach fuzz removal
Dermaplaning can usually be performed in less than an hour for deep exfoliating. Although the skin is scraped with a sharp instrument, the treatment is not painful. It feels similar to shaving, with just a pulling sensation across the skin. The treatment can be repeated every month for ongoing deep exfoliation and acne scar removal. Dermaplaning can be a great exfoliation option for those who cannot tolerate chemical peels or other more abrasive types of dead skin removal.
