4 Reasons Why Dermaplaning is Your Next Must-have Treatment

Aesthetic treatments can be intimidating. Let’s be honest; those of us who have never had a laser procedure or injection done can feel serious butterflies before our appointments. Thankfully, not all procedures are nerve-wracking. One of the most effective procedures around doubles as one of the most straightforward. We’re talking, of course, about dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning isn’t a laser treatment, and it’s not an injectable. Rather, it’s simple rejuvenating exfoliation done with a scalpel and a skilled set of hands. With this treatment, there’s more than meets the eye. Dermaplaning offers several surprising benefits that we’re here to explore together. So, let’s get started! Here are four facts you need to know about dermaplaning. For more information, get in touch with our team at BodyLase® Med Spa today!

It’s NOT the Same as Shaving

Dermaplaning razors have begun popping up on Amazon recently. Their sellers promise that you can achieve professional results at home using their products. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a big difference between shaving and exfoliation. The former is done with a razor, while the latter uses a special scalpel called a dermatome.

This tool is designed for exfoliation, removing debris, dead cells, and vellus hair from the skin. Shaving is focused on hair removal, and in fact, purchasing a razor off Amazon and using it before proper exfoliation can result in razor bumps and irritation.

Dermaplaning Improves Skincare Product Absorption

Dermaplaning works by exfoliating vellus hair from the surface of your skin. These tiny hairs disrupt the smoothness of your skin, and removing them enhances your texture. Along with this, dermaplaning also opens up your pores, making your skin more receptive to skincare products.

After a treatment session, your skin becomes more permeable for about five minutes. This gives us plenty of time to apply your favorite serum and allow its nutrients to be absorbed by your skin.

Dermaplaning is an Excellent Combination Treatment

If you’re inspired to go beyond skincare products, you’re in luck! Since dermaplaning doesn’t rely on chemicals or invasive methods, it can be easily combined with a range of other aesthetic treatments. 

For greater skin rejuvenation, we recommend pairing this treatment with a Hydrafacial®, SkinPen® microneedling, or chemical peel session. If you struggle with sun damage or other hyperpigmentation issues, IPL or laser facial combination may be just what you need.

No Restrictions or Downtime!

Certain aesthetic treatments (especially lasers) are only possible for certain skin types. This is because many options rely on laser light which can be harmful to darker skin tones. Dermaplaning is different. This treatment only uses a scalpel and is therefore safe and effective on any skin type or tone.

Best of all, since this procedure is non-invasive and relatively non-intensive, it doesn’t require any downtime afterward. You can arrive for your appointment, relax, and be done with your exfoliation before you know it! So, if you have some time during your lunch break, why not contact a BodyLase® office today?
