When it comes to the latest 'must have' beauty treatment, dermaplaning is a highly desirable skincare essential that's become a firm favorite of celebrities and medi-aesthetics clients over the last couple of years who are passionate about retaining a natural glowing, flawless complexion. Sometimes referred to as epidermal leveling or blading, dermaplaning is a medical skin treatment consisting of manual exfoliation of the outermost layers of the epidermis. The treatment is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade, and the skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells and impurities.
As a non-invasive aesthetic facial treatment, dermaplaning can address several skincare concerns, ranging from unwanted signs of premature aging to mild scarring and pigmentation—critical benefits for Dermaplaning at Salon Serenity Spa in Wake Forest, North Raleigh, NC.
Dermaplaning may be done as an alternative to a chemical peel or as the first step of a multi-level treatment that combines dermaplaning with a chemical peel for deeper peel penetration. Dermaplaning is a safe treatment when performed by a professional. All skin types and colors can benefit from dermaplaning or blading. This quick, non-surgical procedure is pain-free. There is no swelling or pain associated with the dermaplaning process. Most people say it feels good, and there is no downtime. There is no pain with the dermaplaning procedure because there are no chemicals used, and the process is only taking off the dead skin cells on the skin's surface.
Immediately after a dermaplaning facial, the skin may look slightly red and flushed due to the enhanced circulation and any unwanted sebum and dirt trapped by vellus hairs being removed. However, Erythema (redness) of the skin will subside within a couple of hours with new fresh cells creating a glowing complexion, which will last for several days post-treatment and create a perfect base upon which to apply makeup. One of the key benefits associated with a dermaplaning treatment is that due to the gentle yet practical nature of the procedure, there is no downtime required, so you will be able to carry on with your day to day activities as usual and can apply a mineral-based makeup and sunscreen a couple of hours after the treatment has taken place.
Unlike more invasive treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, mild grade chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types. The procedure itself is gentle yet highly effective. The treatment is recommended for individuals who suffer from conditions such as Rosacea, Telangiectasia, are prone to skin sensitivity, and are contraindicated to other types of facial electrical treatments, i.e., if pregnant or epileptic.
While demaplaning and microdermabrasion are forms of exfoliation, they differ considerably in technique. Dermaplaning is a manual treatment that uses a sterile scalpel to remove fine vellus hairs and keratinized skin cells from the epidermis, while in contrast, microdermabrasion is slightly more abrasive, employing an electrical vacuum suction device and mechanical handpiece containing a diamond tip, aluminum oxide crystals or other similar products to in essence 'sand, buff and polish the skin.
