These days, many of us are in pursuit of an ageless, smooth, radiant complexion, and there are tons of ways to try and achieve perfect skin. Sometimes, the simplest aesthetic procedures can yield incredible results, and dermaplaning is one of those must-adds to your beauty routine. When a skilled skin care specialist is performing the dermaplaning, then you know you’re in excellent hands. The so-called face shaving technique involves the use of a sharp, surgical scalpel to gently scrape the surface of your skin. The mission is to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz that often get in the way of a soft, polished complexion. Fans of the treatment rave about its benefits and how skin care products and cosmetics are then able to enhance your skin to a greater degree.
Suitable for Most Skin Types
The beauty of a dermaplaning procedure is in its uncomplicated process. If you have rosacea, active acne or extremely sensitive skin, then maybe you want to sit this one out, but most complexions find the treatment relaxing and an inexpensive, tiny investment for maintaining a flawless complexion.
Your experienced aesthetic technician is the professional to best conduct this procedure because they know the proper way to hold the blade and glide it across your skin and to use the ideal amount of pressure to accomplish the technique. This is a pleasant treatment and can often be performed during your lunch hour.
Skin care experts recommend an easy-care regimen to enhance the dermaplaning effects you just received at the spa or dermatologist’s office. We can promise you that your makeup will look even more flawless post-dermaplaning. However, don’t rush to apply your foundation, blusher or bronzer just yet.
Aesthetic specialists believe that a gentle touch is best for a couple of weeks. For example, it is advised that you use a mild cleanser to wash your face twice a day and use only cool water to rinse. Then, apply hyaluronic acid (HA) for natural plumpness to the skin, and top the HA with a good, light moisturizer to seal in the hydration.
Post-treatment is the time to stay away from aggressive scrubs or masks that feature harsh acids. Also, refrain from entering a chlorinated pool for at least 24 hours. If you do go out in the sun, load up on a strong SPF, wear a hat, and even sit under an umbrella. Avoid BOTOX sessions or those that feature facial fillers for at least two weeks. You want to let your new, smooth, peach fuzz-free complexion breathe. Your skin barrier is open and more delicate following a dermaplaning treatment.
When to Apply Your Makeup
We know you’re excited to put on your favorite cosmetics to see how they nicely reflect your new smoother, glowing skin. Skin care experts recommend waiting at least one day before applying your foundation and other cosmetic goodies. Without those little peach fuzz hairs, your makeup will appear more seamless over your facial contours. When skin texture is smooth, clear and radiant, makeup adds that extra punch, and dermaplaning is the best way to achieve that.
Another plus with the treatment is the effect on your pores. If you have large pores, dermaplaning can allow them to appear smaller and less noticeable as the scraping delicately removes the top rim of the pore for a smoother surface. When you put on your makeup, it will look more airbrushed because the pores are not an issue, especially in the T-zone. By the way, don’t worry about dermaplaning causing your peach fuzz to grow back in a darker, coarser manner. That’s an old myth. When your peach fuzz returns, it will appear as it always has.
The cool thing about dermaplaning post-treatment is the new way that your complexion will react. Now, when you apply anti-aging serums or moisturizers, these active ingredients will penetrate more effectively for better results since superb exfoliation has been performed. Even aesthetic treatments like chemical peels or laser procedures can offer extra benefits by dermaplaning first.
Most of us desire a healthy, glowing complexion that looks youthful, but we keep piling on products that clog the pores and extend the build-up of layers of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is a simple, safe and fantastic way to smooth the skin’s surface, brighten the complexion, shrink pores, and get rid of the peach fuzz that affects everyone from movie stars to supermodels.
