If you haven’t heard of dermaplaning in Fredericksburg, let us tell you about the latest procedure in skin rejuvenation that creates a youthful, shimmering complexion.
Simple and inexpensive, dermaplaning has many benefits for your face. Did you know dermaplaning triggers the cell regeneration process, increases the absorption and effectiveness of your skin care products, and even helps promote the production of matrix proteins such as collagen and elastin? For a glowy complexion and the smoothest skin, you’ll want to give this trending treatment a try.
How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure that safely removes a layer of dead cells from the surface of your skin. The light exfoliation immediately rejuvenates the skin without any downtime. Dermaplaning removes dulling dead skin cells and superficial vellus hair (a.k.a. peach fuzz) using a surgical scalpel.
“At first, many patients think it sounds scary and that’s completely understandable,” said Dina Crowell, licensed Master Medical Esthetician at Cosmetic Center by VIVA. “But it’s actually one of the gentlest forms of exfoliation with significant results.”
Dermaplaning feels great, leaves you with ultra-smooth skin.
When performed by a licensed and skilled expert, dermaplaning feels like very light brushing. Some patients compare the sensation to the touch of a feather. After the painless treatment, it’s the softness of your skin that you’ll be focused on. Dermaplaning leaves you with ultra smooth skin.
What can I expect during dermaplaning?
The first step in your dermaplaning treatment will be a gentle cleanse to remove any bacteria on the surface. After thoroughly drying your skin, the aesthetician will then pull a section taut with one hand, while holding the sterile scalpel at a 45-degree angle with the other hand. In swift, smooth strokes, the scalpel will graze the skin to slough away the dead skin cells and vellus hair. Patients often find it satisfying to see just how much dead skin and hair is removed. The procedure will take about one hour from start to finish.
Dermaplaning rejuvenates the cells through cellular turnover.
Removing dead skin cells from the entire surface of your face, will have rejuvenating effects. The exfoliation actually stimulates cellular turnover – new skin cells rise from the lower epidermis to top, revealing fresh, brand-new skin.
Top benefits of dermaplaning:
- Evens out skin tone
- Lightens scarring from acne
- Smooths skin texture
- Stimulates new collagen growth
Most patients will schedule a dermaplaning session once a month in order to maintain these results. Routine dermaplaning will also improve your entire skincare regimen. Without the buildup of dead skin cells, you’ll fully absorb the nutrients in the products you apply. Another perk – by removing the vellus hair, your makeup application will be smooth and flawless.
