Dermaplaning has long been a closely held secret of Hollywood stars. It is the shaving off of the top layer of skin, which also removes the peach-fuzz hair on the face. As people age, their skin’s natural ability for exfoliating diminishes from a process that is completed every couple of weeks to one that only happens about once a month. The dead layer of skin sits on the skin below and deprives it of oxygen.
Dermaplaning removes fine lines, thin hair, dirt, dead skin, and oil buildup. This gives skin a more youthful look and allows it to naturally rejuvenate by delivering enriching oxygen to the living skin cells. Come into New Image Med Spa today and find out how Dermaplaning in Chandler, AZ can make a difference for you.
Dermaplaning differs from the sometimes more well-known procedure called dermabrasion, which is a much more intense procedure that involves removing layers of skin down to the dermis. Dermaplaning differs greatly as it shaves off only the top layer of skin, called the epidermis.
Dermaplaning is a quick treatment that requires no healing time and has no adverse effects. It is safe for women who are pregnant and those who are nursing. While some chemical peels are not safe for pregnant women and their developing fetus, dermaplaning uses nothing but a thin scalpel and a delicate touch.
There are many positive effects of having the top layer of skin removed. As stated above, this layer is mainly made up of dead cells that suffocate the lower layers. In addition to removing this dead skin and hair, the buildup of oils and debris that are held by hair follicles are also removed. This gives the skin an invigorated look.
