Dermaplaning: The Path to silky smooth hair free Skin

Welcome to the world of dermaplaning/dermablading, a popular skincare technique that can help you achieve a smooth,hair-free and glowing complexion. In this blog, we will explore what dermaplaning is, the dermaplaning technique, its benefits for achieving smooth skin, how it compares to microdermabrasion, the safety considerations, what to expect during a dermaplaning session, aftercare tips, the recommended frequency for optimal results, and its effectiveness in removing peach fuzz. Let's delve into the world of dermaplaning and discover the path to silky smooth skin.
What is Dermaplaning:
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. This painless procedure reveals a fresh, smooth, and glowing complexion. Great for sensitive skin and even pregnant or breastfeeding mamas
Dermaplaning Technique:
During a dermaplaning session, Kerry delicately glides the scalpel across the skin at a 45-degree angle. The technique requires skill and precision to ensure optimal results and safety. I use one two special oil blends to ensure an easy glide whilst gently depositing serums into your skin.
Dermaplaning for Smooth Skin:
One of the primary benefits of dermaplaning is its ability to deliver instantly smoother skin. By removing the layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, the skin's texture becomes significantly smoother, creating the perfect canvas for makeup application and enhancing the absorption of skincare products. It goers NOT make your grow back quicker or thicker.
Dermaplaning vs Microdermabrasion:
While both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are exfoliation techniques, they differ in their approach. Dermaplaning primarily focuses on manual exfoliation using a scalpel, while microdermabrasion employs a device that propels fine crystals onto the skin's surface to remove dead skin cells. Dermaplaning offers the advantage of a more precise and controlled exfoliation, particularly suitable for those with sensitive skin. They both allow for a deeper level of product penetration.
Safety of Dermaplaning:
Dermaplaning is generally considered safe especially during pregnancy or breastfeedng . However, it is essential to ensure that you receive the treatment after a thorough consultation with Kerry to minimise any potential risks or contraindictactions. Kerry will take necessary precautions and use sterile instruments to ensure your safety throughout the procedure.
What to expect during Dermaplaning:
During a dermaplaning session, you can expect a comfortable and painless experience. Kerry will double cleanse your skin thoroughly and then gently glide the scalpel across the targeted areas. You may experience a mild scraping sensation, but it should not cause any significant discomfort. All our sessions are inclusive of a LED session to help heal and speed up the recovery period.
Aftercare for Dermaplaning:
After a dermaplaning treatment, it's crucial to follow proper aftercare instructions. This typically includes avoiding sun exposure, applying a gentle moisturiser, and using SPF. Kerry will provide a personalised home care regime to optimise the healing process and maintain the results.
How often should you get Dermaplaning:
The recommended frequency of dermaplaning sessions can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, concerns, and desired results. In general, it is recommended to schedule dermaplaning sessions every 8-12 weeks to maintain the benefits and keep your skin looking smooth and radiant.
Dermaplaning for Peach Fuzz:
In addition to exfoliating the skin, dermaplaning is highly effective in removing vellus hair, commonly known as peach fuzz. By eliminating this fine facial hair, dermaplaning not only enhances the skin's smoothness but also allows for better product absorption and a flawless makeup application. It’s a win win situation.
