What is dermaplaning?
Our skin can often start to look dull when we fail to shed the dead skin cells from the surface of our skin. A dermaplaning facial is designed to help deal with this by using a very fine blade which runs across the skin. It does not cause any harm, but can help to remove those skin cells as well as any dirt and debris on the skin, scar tissue, and the soft vellus hair which is often found on the face.
Who is an ideal candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is useful for those who feel their skin is looking tired, as it allows the new, fresher skin cells to show through. It can also be useful for those with pigmentation issues by helping to remove the discoloured skin. It can help for those who find that their skin is uneven, creating a much better base for your make-up and is also beneficial for those with shallow acnes scars or the early signs of ageing.
How does dermaplaning work?
The life cycle of our skin means that our skin cells will die over time and be replaced by newer ones, but these often need a little help to be removed from the skin’s surface. A fine, sterile blade is gently run across the skin at a 45 degree angle to slide away anything that might be clogging the skin. It acts as a form of exfoliation and can leave the skin in a better condition to absorb any topical treatments that are then added to it.
