Regular exfoliation is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. However, there are so many different products on the market, including scrubs and at-home devices, so it’s hard to know what’s right for your skin. Sometimes the simplest treatment is the best treatment and at Columbus Facial Plastics at The Sullivan Centre in Columbus, OH, we offer dermaplane treatments, which are simple exfoliating treatments that will help transform your skin.
What Are the Benefits of a Dermaplane Treatment?
In the beauty world, there are so many different skincare treatments, and whether you’re new to the skincare world or you’re not under the care or direction of a dermatologist, choosing the right treatment for your skin can be a shot in the dark. One of the main benefits of a dermaplane treatment is that it will benefit your skin without putting it at risk. You can also add this treatment to other skincare treatments to increase their effectiveness.
You’ll Get Smoother Skin
You Can Say Goodbye to Peach Fuzz
Everyone has some form of peach fuzz on their face, whether it’s darker and more noticeable or it’s true blonde peach fuzz. Many women attempt to get rid of their blonde peach fuzz through laser hair removal methods only to find out that lasers don’t effectively remove hair that lacks pigment. If you’ve been trying to eliminate peach fuzz from your face, regular dermaplaning sessions will do just that.
You’ll Get the Most Natural Form of Exfoliation
Your Makeup Will Apply Better
When it comes to makeup application, there are few things worse than getting dead skin mixed in with your foundation. This treatment creates a smooth canvas for a flawless makeup application. You will also have fewer blemishes to hide beneath your makeup because dermaplaning also helps treat acne by keeping the pores clear, free of dirt and debris, which helps minimize breakouts.
You’ll Minimize the Appearance of Acne Scars
You’ll Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells
The mantra of dermaplaning should be, “Out with the old, in with the new.” Removing the old, dead skin is the main goal and dermaplaning will accomplish that goal successfully at each and every session. It gets rid of dead skin cells and exposes a more youthful layer of skin. When you make dermaplane treatments a regular part of your monthly skincare routine, you will maintain beautiful skin.
Your Skin Will Glow
Dead skin cells stand in between you and glowing skin. They clog the pores which can lead to acne and inflammation, which convey anything but healthy skin. If you’ve relied on cosmetics such as highlighters to get glow skin, you can save those products for special occasions. This treatment will refresh your skin causing it to have a fresh, natural glow for weeks following your treatment.
It Knows No Skin Type
Many skincare treatments have a list of skin types and tones that shouldn’t undergo treatment. Dermaplaning does not. Because this treatment works on all skin tones and skin types, it is versatile and can help men and women with all different skin types and problematic conditions improve the overall appearance of their skin.
There’s No Downtime
Another benefit of dermaplaning is that you won’t have to plan around any downtime. Your skin won’t become red or inflamed after treatment, so you can schedule this appointment at a time that works best for you and your schedule, and then carry on with your normal daily activities immediately following.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a natural form of physical exfoliation that removes the top layer of the skin along with any fine hair present at the time of treatment. Treatments are relatively quick and don’t require the use of harsh chemicals to improve the skin. It can be combined with other skincare treatments for increased effectiveness.
Physical Vs. Chemical Exfoliation
There are two different types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. These are both beneficial to the skin at different times through different treatments. Some people don’t handle chemical exfoliation as well as they do physical exfoliation or vice versa. Both of these types of exfoliation remove dead skin cells from the epidermis but they do so in very different ways.
Dermaplaning qualifies as a form of physical exfoliation. Physical exfoliation involves the use of something tangible to remove dead skin cells from the epidermis. Other forms of physical exfoliation include microdermabrasion treatments, granular scrubs, exfoliating scrub’s with microbeads, or anything that contains a physical exfoliant that you can feel on your skin.
What Does It Treat?
Not only will a dermaplane treatment exfoliate your skin and make it brighter and smoother, but regular treatments can also resolve problematic skin conditions and improve the overall appearance of your skin. This treatment can:
- Brighten the skin
- Improve the appearance of acne scars
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
- Enhance the effectiveness of your skincare products
- Enhance the effectiveness of other skincare treatments when paired together
- Helps prevent breakouts
What Happens During a Treatment Session?
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Treatment sessions typically 30 to 60 minutes to complete. This relatively quick appointment time allows you to schedule sessions at times that work best for you and your schedule. If you need to, you can schedule your appointment during a lunch break at work, after the gym, or even in the midst of a day spent running errands.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to See Results?
Unlike other facial rejuvenation treatments, dermaplane treatments don’t need to build upon each other to increase results. You will notice results after one treatment, and you can maintain your results by making this treatment a regular part of your beauty routine.
Regular treatment sessions will help keep your skin glowing and exfoliated so that dead skin cells don’t accumulate and lead to problematic skin conditions like breakouts or a dull-looking skin tone.
