Dermaplaning is an increasingly popular skin care technique that can help you achieve a smooth and glowing complexion. It’s an exfoliation method in which a small, sharp scalpel-like blade is used to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) from your face. This form of physical exfoliation helps to reveal a softer, smoother texture that looks more youthful and allows other treatments such as serums, creams, and facial masks to absorb more effectively into the skin.

The procedure typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour and involves several steps. First, the area is cleansed with a gentle cleanser to ensure removal of dirt and oil. Then, a small handheld device with a blade is used to carefully scrape away the upper layers of skin and hair. The results are immediately visible and typically last up to three weeks after the treatment.

The benefits of dermaplaning are many. It helps improve texture by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells that can make your complexion look dull and dry. Removing this layer also helps reveal younger, fresher looking skin beneath it, as well as helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dermaplaning can also help even out your complexion by reducing hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or age spots. Additionally, it can help reduce mild acne scarring over time due to the exfoliating action.

Due to the slight risk of infection and scarring, it’s important to choose a qualified professional when considering dermaplaning. At Elite Medspa, we ensure our team members are experienced and certified in performing the procedure.

In conclusion, dermaplaning can be a great way to improve your complexion by removing dead skin cells and vellus hair from your face. It helps reveal softer, smoother skin free of dullness or unevenness while also helping products absorb more effectively into the skin. With our experienced professionals, you can enjoy long-lasting results that leave your face looking younger and fresher than ever before!
