Make Your Skin Care Products Work Harder, Better.
Dermaplaning may seem like the latest trend but it actually started during the 1970s. Its original use was described as a possible remedy for acne vulgaris– a type of acne caused by an excess of dead facial skin, facial bacteria, and facial oils, causing pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts.
When the dead cell layer is removed, the skin underneath can breathe, hydrate, expel toxins and absorb nutrients at an optimal rate.
This form of exfoliation requires a professional aesthetician to manually scrape built-up dead skin cells off your face with a sharp surgical blade. As dead skin is scraped away, so is vellus hair or “peach fuzz”. This is beneficial because these tiny hairs cling onto dirt and oil, which cause breakouts and a dull complexion.
If your skin has lost its glow and you have a lot of acne (cystic or otherwise), dermaplaning is a gentle way to exfoliate your skin and reap some amazing benefits, including:
- Smoother, more radiant skin
- Softer fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduced scarring
- Removal of vellus hair (it won’t grow back darker or thicker)
