Our skin on our face can develop a layer of dead skin cells that will need to be cleaned and treated in order to achieve a smoother complexion. That is where Dermaplaning comes in, an exfoliation technique that uses a small scalpel to gently remove the layer of dead skin. This cosmetic procedure has been a favorite for those in front of the cameras professionally for years due to the high definition results it can provide. But Dermaplaning is not just for models and actresses; it is an easily accessible procedure that we can provide in our very own offices. Here is what you can expect from Dermaplaning St Louis.
How Dermaplaning Works
Dermaplaning works by gently removing the top layer of dead skin cells on your face. Typically, a 10-gauge blade is used for the best results. In addition to removing the layer of dead skin cells, the blade will also remove micro hairs and allow for better application of makeup products.
Is Dermaplaning Painful?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure that will leave you comfortable from start to finish during the treatment. Most patients say this simple procedure feels like shaving, so unless you have had bad experiences with shaving, you will be at ease. Our cosmetic technicians have years of experience, making sure you are in safe hands.
Benefits of Dermaplaning St Louis
Patients who receive Dermaplaning will find the softest feeling skin they have experienced. In addition to all of your “peach fuzz” hair being gone, your skin will have a softer texture.
Another additional benefit of derma planing is that vellus hair (peach fuzz) can hold sweat and oil, clogging pores. So removal of this vellus hair can help with clogging. It also causes the skin cells to renew which can give you that younger and glowy look that everyone wants. The dead skin cells that are laying on top can make the skin look dull as well. So by removing those skin cells your face will be renewed giving you a youthful glow!
Myths About Dermaplaning
A myth about dermaplaning is that vellus hair will grow thicker and darker. This is false:the color will remain the same and it will not grow back any thicker then once before. Removing of dead skin cells encourages skin-cell turnover and new growth, which can even out skin tone. Reducing signs of aging, like dark spots and wrinkles.
Planning for Dermaplaning
It has never been easier to plan for your Dermaplaning treatment. Patients have no downtime following the procedure, letting you get on with your everyday activities. Some patients may experience sensitivity to sunlight and are recommended to wear sunscreen after their treatment. Since our skin cells and facial hair grow back quickly, patients are able to receive Dermaplaning every 21 days. Our treatments typically take around half an hour to administer, allowing you to be in and out in no time.
