With a focus on good skincare, you’ll wear less makeup.
Do you desire brighter and smoother skin? Dermaplaning might be the vehicle to your destination! The estheticians at DayDreams Day & Med Spa are dermaplaning experts that will safely and efficiently restore a healthy, youthful glow to your skin.
What is Dermaplaning ?
Vellus hair – more commonly known as peach fuzz – traps oil, debris, and makeup. Over time, these impurities can accumulate, causing your skin to become visibly dull and damaged. Dermaplaning is a painless method of deep exfoliation that rids your skin of contaminant-trapping peach fuzz and dead skin cells.
During this service, an esthetician uses a sterile, medical-grade blade to gently stroke the face. The effects mimic the exfoliating qualities of microdermabrasion or chemical peels, but in a gentler, more controlled fashion. This makes dermaplaning a good option for those seeking the benefits of a deep manual exfoliation, but whose sensitive skin or pregnancy would otherwise prevent them from receiving microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
How Does It Work?
By ridding the face of peach fuzz and dead cells, dermaplaning wipes away the oil, makeup, and other impurities trapped on and immediately underneath the skin’s surface. Cell turnover is stimulated, which can decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And, the frequency of minor acne breakouts associated with congested pores lessen. Put simply, your face will appear smoother instantly. And, because serums and product will be able to better penetrate, over time, the health of the skin cells themselves can improve.
Can’t I Just Shave My Face?
Shaving fundamentally differs from this service.
- Shaving with a razor removes facial hair and chunks of skin in a random fashion. Dermaplaning is a refined and precise procedure that evenly removes dead skin and peach fuzz – not facial hair.
- Shaving blunts the end of hair, meaning it will grow back faster, thicker, and with a stubbly texture. The more this is repeated, the faster the hair will return in this fashion. Dermaplaning does not remove facial hair – only peach fuzz – so you will not have to worry about stubble or additional facial hair.
- The exfoliation from a razor is far less exfoliating than that of dermaplaning. Dermaplaning performed by a DayDreams esthetician uses a medical instrument and precise surgical blades.
What is a Dermapeel?
Double the exfoliation in one service! While dermaplaning and chemical peels are effective apart, they work synergistically together. At DayDreams, the face is expertly dermaplaned to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. A hydrating peel using pure, natural lactic acid is then applied to unveil hydrated and plump skin with a radiant, healthy glow. Since dermaplaning enables the acid solution to reach deeper levels of the dermis, the chemical solution in a combination treatment is left on the skin for a shorter period of time than it is during a chemical peel alone. Note this combination service is not recommended for those with sensitive skin.
How Long do the Effects Last?
Skin cells generally turn over every 21-28 days. And, most DayDreams clients usually see the vellus hair grow back in about three to four weeks. If you would like dermaplaning to be part of your regular beauty regimen, we recommend coming in once a month to maintain the soft, smooth appearance.
