Dermaplaning is one of the newest trends in skincare. This procedure is done by taking a scalpel and scraping the top layers of dead skin off of a client’s face, but don’t worry – that description sounds a lot more intimidating than it actually is. In fact, this totally safe treatment is the beauty community’s best kept secret for maintaining a youthful complexion.
Here’s five reasons why we’re obsessed with this latest treatment:
Through exfoliation, dermaplaning helps improve the texture of your skin. It removes the top layer of dead skin off of the face which scan help the colour of your skin to appear more even. This makes dermaplaning especially great for treating hyperpigmentation in clients.
Dermaplaning actually helps promote the production of matrix proteins such as collagen and elastin. These proteins help keep the skin looking firm and youthful. Without collagen and elastin the more noticeable fine lines and wrinkles are in the skin. By stimulating the production of these proteins, this treatment can reduce preexisting signs of aging.
Dermaplaning helps give clients a glowing complexion! It also helps with “hyperkeratosis” which is a buildup of the top layer of the skin. This dulls the complexion and can contribute to acne. By removing this buildup you can help treat and prevent acne breakouts.
We all have little patches of baby hair on our face, which can sometimes affect the way makeup or skincare products sit on our skin. Since dermaplaning is essentially shaving down your face, you’ll lose the hair and the dead skin cells at the same time!
This treatment exfoliates the top layers of dead skin off of the client’s face. With all of that dead skin removed, products are able to penetrate the skin much better. Clients may also find that they’re using less of their facial creams and serums because the products glide on smoother.If you’re interested in learning more about this up and coming beauty trend, you can sign up for one of our upcoming Dermaplaning Workshops at the International Beauty Institute.
