Dermaplaning is one of the most efficient exfoliation techniques being done the world over. It is a delicate procedure that helps reveal a healthier and more radiant skin without causing any redness or irritation. As compared to other facial procedures, Dermaplaning leaves your skin looking and feeling as soft and supple as a baby!
Dermaplaning is a painless, non-invasive procedure that involves manual scraping of the surface dead skin cells. As a result, there is an increase in the cellular turnover, stimulating underlying skin cells to produce new cells that are healthier and more youthful. The procedure itself smoothens and softens the skin, and the results are visible instantly. This manual exfoliation of the skin tricks the body into thinking it has an injury stimulating the healing mechanism, immediately producing healthier, plump skin cells. As an added advantage, Dermaplaning removes the fine hair on the face also known as “peach fuzz which would otherwise trap oil and dirt which leading to acne and pigmentation. Once all the dirt, oil and dead skin cells have been removed, facial products and treatments are able to penetrate more easily and more evenly, thus, making them much more effective.
After cleaning the face, your dermatologist will gently scrape away the surface layer of dead skin cells along with the dirt and oil with a sterile surgical scalpel. The procedure requires expertise and has to be done very delicately. Dermaplaning may be followed by other procedures such as chemical peeling so as to promote further exfoliation and even out the skin tone. At the end of the procedure you will leave the clinic with absolutely no redness or irritation and with younger looking and glowing Hormonal Changes
