NEW! Dermaplaning ....
I guess the secret is out! Derma Planing is not just shaving your face, but this treatment offers an array of benefits from reducing dull, tired skin, to promoting healthy rejuvenated skin. No more fuzzy hair and taking your professional skin care treatments to the next level.
Rachel Hunter recently had a treatment in Japan during her Tour of Beauty TV show resembling the removal of the vellus hair or peach fuzz with a razor. This treatment is like Derma Planing, but due to the specialised implement used, the angle Derma Planing is performed at, and with no product application during the treatment the results will provide an advanced exfoliation treatment rather than just shaving the skin.
The question we get asked on a regular basis about Derma Planing is: “will my hair grow back as a beard or become coarser and darker? “This is physically impossible due to the type of hair which is present on the face. The hair follicle contains the DNA which is programmed to produce vellus hair also referred to peach fuzz and receiving Derma Planing treatments will not be able to alter the DNA of the follicle.
Dermaplaning, sometimes known as epidermal levelling or blading, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to make skin feel smoother, and to appear healthier and more youthful. Like Microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning removes the top-most layer of facial skin, thus eliminating dead skin cells and minor surface imperfections.
How effective is Dermaplaning? Is Dermaplaning the right facial rejuvenation method for you? Read on to find out!
Dermaplaning treatments are a form of manual exfoliation, they are typically performed by a dermatologist or a licensed aesthetician at a professional skin care clinic. Dermaplaning or epidermal levelling utilizes a sterile surgical blade called a dermatome. The dermatome is carefully stroked over the skin in even motions like shaving. Treatment time can be as short as 15-20 minutes.
Blading the skin with a dermatome painlessly removes dry, dead surface skin to reveal new, healthy skin cells. Dermaplaning poses no serious side effects and patients can resume normal activities immediately following treatment. Typically, Dermaplaning is only performed on the face, taking care to avoid the eyelids and neck. No chemical or acid solutions are used in conjunction with Dermaplaning, making it less irritating for sensitive-skinned patients than chemical peels.
What Does Dermaplaning Treat? Dermaplaning is recommended to treat dry, rough skin, acne scars, uneven skin tone, large pores, fine lines…even unwanted facial hair. Dermaplaning is a safe, effective treatment for overall skin rejuvenation. It can produce a smoother skin texture and a clearer complexion, while minimizing fine lines and minor scars.
Since the Dermaplaning dermatome is a sharp blade, unwanted peach fuzz or whiskers may also be eliminated during treatment. In this manner, Dermaplaning offers a rare combination of skin rejuvenation and facial hair removal benefits. Acne scars and minor wrinkles can be minimized with Dermaplaning as the dermatome blade removes damaged epidermal skin. Since Dermaplaning removes dead skin more swiftly and cleanly than the natural shedding process allows, it can also trigger speedier skin cell turnover.
Is Dermaplaning Right for Me? Dermaplaning or epidermal levelling is recommended for patients who want a non-surgical, non-invasive, affordable skin rejuvenation treatment - with a focus on quick treatment sessions, no recovery time, and no major side effects. Patients wanting to treat acne scars, poor skin tone, large or clogged pores, fine lines and very dry skin can achieve great skin success with Dermaplaning. The best way to determine if Dermaplaning is right for you is to consult with a licensed aesthetic specialist in your area. They can determine whether Dermaplaning or Chemical Peels are the most appropriate skin rejuvenation treatment option for you!
