You’re probably familiar with the benefits of exfoliation. As dead skin cells pile up, they make your skin appear dull. They do more than just dim your naturally bright complexion, though. They can also create buildups that lead to breakouts and other problems. Exfoliation is the answer, but for those who suffer from allergies or sensitive skin that prevents the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels, there’s a better way – Dermaplaning.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermaplaning works thanks to a fine sterile blade that gently removes the dead skin cells and fine hair of the face. First, your aesthetician cleanses and dries your skin. Then, pulling an area of your skin tight, he or she takes the blade across your skin at an angle, removing the problem skin cells and the light hairs across your face. It feels a bit like shaving your legs.
The entire procedure takes about thirty minutes, and there are no potential side effects, and there’s absolutely no downtime. You’ll typically want to wait at least a month before your next procedure.
