Got Dermaplane on the brain? Ready to shed that dead skin but you need the full scoop? I got you, girl!
What in the world is a Dermaplane? What are the benefits? How much does it cost? and how often should you get one?
What is a Dermaplane?
A Dermaplane is a form of deep exfoliation done with a surgical grade scalpel. The blade is held at a 45 degree angel and carefully moved across the skin to remove 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. With the removal of the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your face, Hollywood's best kept secret has your skin feeling fresher and looking younger!
Does it hurt?
What are the benefits of a Dermaplane?
1. Anti Aging
Diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles and increases cell turnover.
Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells and baby hairs which can get trapped and clog pores - creating acne.
3. Deeper Product Penetration
Dead skin vacationing on the top layer, keeps your products from penetrating into your pores. Removing the dead skin allows your cleansers, moisturizers, and serems go deeper and work more effectively. Some people get a Dermplane in conjuction with other services such as peels or the Hydrafacial for better results.
4. Bomb Make Up Application
Because your skin is nice and fresh your make up will go on smoother and look flawless.
How much is a Dermaplane and where can I get one?
A Dermaplane can range anywhere from $75-$150. In most states you can get this service done by a Licensed Esthetician at your local spa. You can also find these services on the menu at the Dermatologists office and most medical spas.
How often should I get a Dermaplane?
You could get a Dermaplane as often as every two weeks but it is recommended to get one every 3-4 weeks.
Why would I get a Dermaplane at a spa when I can do one on myself at home?
You can buy an "at home Dermaplane kit" pretty much anywhere on the internet and attempt to drag that blade across your face from the comfort of your own bathroom. This will remove your peach fuzz but it will not go as deep as removing the dead skin cells like the surgical steel blade used by a professional. For me, I want a Dermaplane for the anti-aging benefits, removing the peach fuzz is a bonus! Plus this can be dangerous. Leave it to the professionals!
The Dermaplane is a pain free service with no down time. After getting a Dermaplane ALWAYS wear sunscreen and stay out of direct sunlight for a couple days. SPF is your BFF!
