While it may sound crazy, a gentle shaving-like technique is actually the secret to smoother, brighter, and more youthful skin! And no, it is nothing like what men do on a daily basis. Professional dermaplaning is a form of physical exfoliation that uses a butter blade to remove built up dead skin and baby hairs from the face and neck.
We All Have Facial Hair
Women have facial hair just like men. Best known as “peach fuzz” or vellus hair, these tiny hairs are usually finer and lighter. While sparse in a woman’s youth, upwards of three-quarters of women have increased facial hair as they age. Dermaplaning removes these fine hairs as well as the top layer of dead skin cells.
Immediate Gratification with Long Term Results
Women love that they can see a difference immediately and leave our Wellness Centre marveling at their baby-soft complexions. By increasing cellular turnover and encouraging collagen production, the benefits of dermaplaning continue as the skin regenerates. Dermaplaning has a long list of skin-healthy benefits, including:
- Soften rough skin
- Brighten your complexion
- Improves mild scarring and superficial hyperpigmentation
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Evens-out skin tone and texture
Your Hair Will Grow Back Exactly the Same
It is a common misconception that removing hair causes it to grow back thicker, coarser, and darker. Nothing more than an old wives’ tale, the same exact hairs will re-grow at the same rate and with the same texture as before.
A Great Layering Treatment
Dermaplaning improves the efficacy of in-office and at-home skincare treatments. To enhance your treatment at BeautyPoint Wellness Centre, dermaplaning is often combined with a gentle chemical peel or hydrating facial. Women love that at home, their skincare products penetrate deeper and makeup application is easier and smoother.
