These days, aestheticians are coming up with new, creative treatments to keep your face looking it’s best. One of the hottest skincare trends these days, is dermaplaning. But what do you really know about this fancy skincare treatment and how do you know if it’s for you?
Dermaplaning is a method of deep exfoliation, where a razor or scalpel is used to gently remove the top layer of skin, which contains dead skin cells and peach fuzz, revealing a bright, glowing layer of skin that feels baby-butt smooth. Scary, right?
Dermaplaning is completely pain-free, so no need to worry! This service can be done at many spas and salons, but can sometimes carry with it a hefty price tag. However, I have found an easy way to do this at home!
I purchased a small pack of eyebrow razors (the perfect dermaplaning accessory!) from Amazon. Once they arrived, I cleansed my skin and kept my face wet to allow easy removal of dead skin cells. Then, I carefully and lightly brush the razor over my skin, at an angle so that I wasn’t cutting myself at all.
The result was the removal of the dead skin cells, and my face was SUPER soft. This not only helps my complexion, but keeps the texture of my face super smooth. This way, makeup goes on easily and flawlessly, my skin is happy and unclogged, and I break out less!
So is dermaplaning right for you? This is not suggested if you have acne-prone skin, as this can cause further irritation. However, you shouldn’t have to worry about any other side effects. Your hair will not grow back darker or thicker, it helps significantly lighten acne scars, and can help treatments such as facials, microdermabrasion, lasers, and facial peels have a deeper penetration. So, basically no downside!
Questions? Let me know what they are! As always consult a nurse practitioner before trying new skincare techniques. Thanks!
