Dermaplaning / Dermablading
What is Dermablading/Dermaplaning:
Dermaplaning |Dermablading this is my Go-To treatment for every one of my clients. It’s my favorite type of “manual exfoliation”. Yes I can do Microdermabrasion. But it’s loud I have less control over how much of the surface I remove. And almost none of my clients get the classic “redness” that is standard with Microdermabrasion.
Dermaplaning removes Peach Fuzz making facial products and makeup application smooth and flawless and it also removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. Dermaplaning (blading) is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation.
How is this treatment performed?
It is safely performed by using a #10 scalpel blade (that’s right! A sterile surgical blade). The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving.
Is this Treatment Safe?
This treatment, when professionally trained, is extremely safe. There is no more risk to the skin than when a man shaves his face. As long as the practitioner has adequate training, the treatment should be very easy and quick.
Myth: If you are ‘blading” the skin on the face, the hairs on the face grow back thicker. FALSE. It is physiologically impossible for your fine facial hairs to grow back thicker. If this were true – every time you shaved your legs or underarms – the hair would become thicker. Hair thickness and structure has more to do with hormones and heredity – than razors. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE FOLLICLE OF THE HAIR BY SHAVING.
"Why did the hair on my daughter’s leg come in thicker after she shaved for the first time?" Hormones, probably. Of course, add puberty into the mix and you will see plenty of changes within your child’s physical structure.
Can dermaplaning cause the skin to bleed?
Of course. In all honesty, it can. I am using a scalpel. But the incidence of cutting into the skin is slim.
How often is this procedure performed?
I recommend blading be performed every 3 – 4 weeks. Think of it as routine care. Blading the skin actually removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. I would not recommend treating the skin more often than that.
Can dermablading or dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?
Absolutely!! Chemical Peels combined with blading on the same day give the skin a fantastic result.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning or blading, however, I would not recommend this treatment for those suffering from acne and an over production of the sebaceous gland. The oils from the sebaceous gland need to travel up and connect with the villous hair.
This is truly one of the BEST types of exfoliation. Chemical FREE! For me this exfoliation process is fool-proof. Overall, I think that dermaplaning the skin is a great way to treat two skin conditions; dull skin and a fuzzy face!
