What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is one of the easiest ways of removing unwanted hair from the face. If you think that men are the only ones who shave their faces, you probably haven't heard of dermaplaning. This skincare trend has women regularly de-fuzzing for smooth, soft, fresh-feeling skin.
Dermaplaning essentially means paying a licensed esthetician to shave your face with a razor-sharp scalpel. It sounds scary, but it's popular among those who want super smooth,
even-toned skin without irritating chemical exfoliants. Dermatologists say this treatment is useful for people looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright. However, results typically last three weeks. Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk when a certified dermatologist performs it.
How it Works
Your skin is subjected to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun exposure regularly. This can make the skin's top layer seem flat, and it may make you look older. Dermaplaning clears the weakened skin cells, so newer skin cells are all you see when you look in the mirror. Reports are mainly anecdotal about how efficient dermaplaning is. Everyone has varying results, and it is not easy to quantify statistically whether or not the treatment is a success.
You shouldn't feel any discomfort during a dermaplaning treatment. During the procedure, you can experience a tingling feeling.
First, in a tidy, comfortable bed, you'll be lying down on your provider's chair. Sedation alternatives may be available, often requiring numbing spray or local anesthesia in conjunction with an oral sedative or, in extreme cases, general anesthesia.
Your provider can use an automated or manual dermaplaning system to scrape across your skin at a 45-degree angle after you're comfortable. On average, this procedure will take 20 to 30 to be completed. After the treatment is finished, your provider will soothe your skin with a substance like an aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face.
Risks and side effects
Dermaplaning is a technique that is low risk. Side effects can include mild redness in the face within hours of undergoing counseling. In a day or two after dermaplaning, some individuals may develop whiteheads on their eyes. With dermaplaning, inflammation and scarring are uncommon, but they can occur. Your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften scar tissue if it develops. In the region where you get the treatment, a patchy skin pigment may occur, reducing or vanishing as time goes by.
