Is there a secret recipe for perfect skin? For most women, some nuanced combination of skin care products and cosmetic treatments is just the ticket for an enviable Insta-worthy glow, but for other women, there really is a secret ingredient to get the glow. At Defyin’ Time in Mount Pleasant, TX we’re ready to let you in on secret for perfect skin. Learn everything you need to know about dermaplaning and finally have skin that doesn’t need to hide behind a filter!
What Is Dermaplaning?
If you’ve been paying attention to beauty bloggers, then you might already be familiar with this treatment. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a sterile blade to scrape dead, dry skin and tiny facial hairs off the skin’s surface. This is considered an exfoliating treatment, which means that it helps unveil new, glowing, healthy skin.
How It Works
The sterile blade used for this treatment is similar to a scalpel, which is gently passed over skin by a skilled technician. Skin is pulled taut, and the blade is guided upward in smooth motions, removing dead skin cells and hair as it goes. This treatment can be used all over the face, including the cheeks, forehead, between the brows, the chin, and the jawline.
What to Expect at Defyin’ Time
At Defyin’ Time, it is our standard practice to include a post-treatment exfoliating scrub to remove the last of the dead skin cells clinging to skin. The exfoliating scrub included in our treatment will help stimulate blood flow and encourage a more rapid skin cell turn over, which reveals newer skin with a rosy glow.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
There are many benefits to this treatment. A skilled technician and regularly scheduled treatments can quickly produce the perfect skin you are striving for. One of the main benefits of dermaplaning is the fact that it is a painless, non-invasive treatment with zero downtime. Other benefits include:
Smoother skin is easily achieved by the removal of dead skin cells and the tiny peach fuzz hairs on the face. This treatment smoothes out the canvas of your face, which can soften skin by removing any uneven texture. The removal of dead skin cells and troublesome peach fuzz gives the natural oils in your skin more freedom to rise to the surface and spread evenly across your face. The smoothing of the skin surface also makes fine lines and wrinkles appear less obvious.
Acne and Acne Scarring
This treatment can help prevent acne and reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Acne is often caused by a combination of factors, including dirt and oil that is trapped on the skin surface by dry, dead skin cells. This treatment removes old skin and ultimately creates a skin environment that makes it difficult for acne to thrive. This treatment also reduces the appearance of acne scarring by evening the skin surface to create a smoother, less dimpled appearance.
For many women, the most important benefit of this treatment is the better application of skin care products and make-up. When skin is smooth and free of peach fuzz, it is much easier to evenly apply products to the skin. Blending make-up onto the skin is much easier and setting powders do not get caught in facial hair, which can make you look older than you are. Additionally, skin care products like moisturizers and serums can penetrate the skin more deeply when the skin is not obstructed by dead skin cells.
How Often Should I Get Dermaplaning?
For most people, this treatment can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks and it is very common to schedule regular monthly appointments. However, how often you have this treatment depends on your exact skin type. If your skin is more sensitive, than we recommend about 5 to 6 weeks between appointments. If you are older and your skin cell turn over is slower, then we recommend waiting 6 to 8 weeks between appointments.
The longer wait times between sessions are to ensure that your skin has enough time to regenerate new cells, as each treatment session removes about 2 to 3 weeks of dead skin cells at once. We will help you decide how often you will need this treatment to maintain the desired results.
Can I Combine This Treatment?
This is a treatment that can combine with virtually any other skin treatment at our office, but we most often see this treatment combined with:
Radiofrequency treatments generally address mid-to-deep skin issues, such as wrinkles, dark spots or hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and skin laxity. Radiofrequency combined with this treatment means you can treat both surface and sub-surface skin issues at once.
Any of the facials at our office combine well with this treatment. Facials are typically used to treat mild-to-moderate skin issues, particularly for anti-aging, hydration, anti-inflammation, and skin regeneration. The combination of this treatment and a facial allows the serums used in the facial to penetrate the skin more effectively.
This treatment also combines well with clinical-strength skin care products, particularly cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. We can help you explore the right skin care products for you at your consultation so that you can get the most out of this treatment.
There are many ideal candidates for this treatment because this treatment is ideal for every skin type and skin tone. Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, there is zero risk of hyperpigmentation for darker complexions and very little risk of irritating the skin with this treatment. You may be a good candidate for this treatment if you want:
- Smoother and softer skin
- More even skin tone and texture
- Less acne and acne scarring
- Better product application
