What You Should Know About Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a scalpel-based process of exfoliating and removing vellus (short and thin) hair from the face, and it has lately gained popularity in the United Kingdom. However, there is still some skepticism about what it is and why it works so well.

Some therapists think it's just a shave, but it's a lot more than that. The procedure is carried out with a scalpel that, in a very wide sense, peels away the layers of dead skin cells by resembling a wood plane.

What are the advantages of it?

While some people are drawn to dermaplaning because of the shave, it's only a side effect of the deep, gentle exfoliation it provides.

After a treatment, clients always comment on how soft, clean, and fresh their skin feels, as well as how alive and vibrant it appears. When compared to earlier exfoliation treatments, therapists who utilize this on existing clients say the results are amazing, but the advantages are also rapid and without downtime.

The advantages of dermaplaning, however, do not end there. It can be used to effectively target scarring (especially acne scars), UV damage, pigmentation, and fine wrinkles, in addition to making a noticeable impact in the appearance and feel of the skin. Because these are gradual advances, the client would need a series of monthly treatments, but the majority of people are enthralled by the results and want more.

Dermaplaning is a wonderful way to start if you want to do more treatments. After you've removed the dead skin cells, you'll be able to use everything you put to the skin thereafter on a deeper level. Because of the absorption and reflection of these cells, facials frequently lose a lot of their effectiveness.
