Women have been shaving their faces for years behind closed doors! It’s been said that Hollywood sirens Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe kept their faces fabulous with this method. Put your razor and shaving cream away. Razor burn and cuts make the traditional method a bad approach.
So what’s a girl to do? Dermaplaning is a safe and effective way to exfoliate the epidermis and rid the skin of fine vellus hair (otherwise known as peach fuzz). This noninvasive treatment is appropriate for many different skin types.
Dermaplaning is quick, affordable and requires no downtime! Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, our medical estheticians abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatments result in smooth, glowing skin that is red carpet ready.
Exfoliating the skin helps you get the most from your moisturizers and serums. Your skincare regime will be more effective because the products will penetrate deeper into the skin. Makeup looks smooth and natural when applied on skin free of vellus hair. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing this hair reveals healthier skin.
I am sure everyone is familiar with the old wives’ tale about hair growing back longer, thicker, and darker. Don’t worry ladies, you won’t transform into the Wolverine. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture before the treatment.
Dermaplaning can be done as often as once a month. Don’t forget to use sunscreen after the treatment to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Be sure to check out Dr. Randal Rudderman on Facebook where we have a demonstration of dermaplaning for your viewing pleasure. The patient in our demo had her first dermaplaning treatment ever.
Afterward, she said:
What an awesome treatment! I will be doing this again. I love how my skin feels.
