Dermaplaning with a #10 Blade

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Dermaplaning: has been a go-to esthetic service since the 70’s!! ▪️What is the difference between SHAVING your face and DERMAPLANING? Shaving the face removes the vellus hair, commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”. Professional dermaplaning also removes vellus hair but has additional benefits that cannot be achieved by any other single service. Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment, with the added benefit of removing vellus hairs. With dermaplaning, a trained esthetician uses a sterile surgical #10 blade to remove vellus hairs and dead skin cells. Vellus hairs trap oil and dirt on the skin surface, especially for individuals with oily skin. The build up of dead skin cells dulls the skin and can clog pores. At home facial razors are not able to achieve the same level of depth to remove the dead skin cells. They can be used to maintain the vellus hair growth, if that is the individual’s primary concern. Regardless of the experience one has, the effects of shaving at home will not compare to those of professional dermaplaning. When vellus hairs and dead skin cells are removed, skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin, allowing the ingredients to work better and makeup goes on smoother. Immediately after dermaplaning your skin will feel softer and look brighter. There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning. It is recommended to get treatment every 4-6 weeks, based on the rate of cell turnover. Every 26-28 days, new cells push dead skin cells to the surface, blocking the pores. Dermaplaning is an alternative to microdermabrasion, as it is much gentler for those with sensitive skin or broken capillaries. What to Know After Dermaplaning? ▪️Avoid direct sun exposure for 3 days. ▪️Avoid extreme heat for 3 days. ▪️Do not use scrubs or other exfoliants for 1 week. ▪️Avoid chlorine for 1 week. ▪️Good daily skincare routine using serums and moisturizers. ▪️Always use sun protection ▪️ Not a good service for Rosaeca or ultra sensitive skin types. #dermaplaning #dermaplanefacial #everettdermaplanning#everettmedspa #dermaplanefacial#lynnwoodskintightening #microneedling #lynnwoodsalon #everettesthetician #rfmicroneedling #acnefacial #millcreek #acnepeel #chemicalpeel
