The dermaplaning is a procedure that generates an exfoliation of the skin and also removes the fine hairs (fluff) of the face. Note that this is not the same as dermabrasion, dermaplaning would be shaving the epidermis, while abrasion is a mechanical peeling made ??with diamond tip.
Usually only done once a month, always on the face and excludes any profiled nose, eyelids, neck or chest. It is widely used to help reduce the visibility of acne scars and fine wrinkles.
To realize the specialist uses a special knife with which scrapes the extension of the skin and is removing the surface layers. Immediately see a marked improvement, skin texture becomes smoother and fresher appearance.
No fear into the subsequent hair growth. Hair that is removed is the surface hair, which grows with the same characteristics and never hard, black or thick.
Experts recommend dermaplaning before procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It is also a technique used by beauticians to prepare the skin for superficial or before a facial chemical peels.
The dermaplaning is indicated for cases of rough, dry skin with superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.
The only skin that can not be treated with this technique is the acneic skin exfoliation because the sebum from the sebaceous glands have to connect to the hair follicle and the hair to be excreted. If this hair and sebum accumulates is removed, the glands become clogged and cause more breakouts.
The good thing is that dermaplaning having no chemicals involved, the skin irritation is much lower. Moreover, a session usually lasts no more than 30 minutes and leaves no swollen and red face after. As the scalpel is used to dermaplaning is small, it is possible to treat specific areas and problems with greater ease and skill than other cosmetic procedures.
