Our skin is a living, growing organism. Every day skin cells die, and new ones are produced to replace the old. Exfoliating our facial skin is a good way to let the natural glow shine. Dermaplaning is a facial treatment that can maximize the glow.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is an effective and safe exfoliation procedure. The procedure removes dead skin cells as well as the vellus hair, or “peach fuzz”. Dermaplaning is performed at Zeeba Clinic by Shawn Guyuron, a certified aesthetician. She says:
If you’ve ever wondered what people are doing to get that extra glow, this is it. If your skin is not overly sensitive, I recommend following dermaplaning with the Obaji ZO Stimulator Peel, which is a mixture of 30% lactic acid, citric acid, and a glycolic acid to maximize exfoliation. This peel is also designed to exfoliate the skin by stimulating cellular turnover which improves skin tone, texture, and clarity. The best part is that there is no downtime, peeling, or redness afterwards; just glowing, healthy skin.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD DERMAPLANING BE DONE?
Dermaplaning is usually performed every 3 to 4 weeks to keep the skin looking younger and glowing.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?
It is important to know that people who suffer from acne or have excessively oily skin should not have dermaplaning performed. Reason being, if the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could lead to acne breakouts.
WILL MY FACIAL HAIR GROW BACK THICKER OR DARKER?
There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker or thicker. Because dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair, the hair will grow back the same size and color.
HOW IS DERMAPLANING PERFORMED?
A sterile surgical scalpel is used to gently shave the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair. The procedure generally will remove between 2 to 3 weeks of dead skin from the facial area.
