While getting the instant gratification of the look and feel of beautiful skin, there's also a preventive care bonus to this service. Our cell turnover rate—what happens when our skin produces new skin cells, which travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer, and then sheds off the skin—slows down as we start the aging process. Cell turnover keeps dead cells from building up on the skin's surface.
Without the help of exfoliating, however, the top layer of skin starts to appear dull and ages more quickly. Dermaplaning could eventually help with the look of fine lines, age spots and sunspots, and will also help skincare products penetrate to a deeper level because the barrier of old, dull skin is now removed. Taking care of our skin in our 20s and 30s will help us look younger in our 40s and 50s (and so on), as long as we exfoliate, hydrate and protect our skin.
DURING DERMAPLANING SERVICE:
Men and women who shouldn't engage in Dermaplaning are those with very mature skin, acne-prone skin that may not be able to handle the scraping, or those who have very oily skin that need their vellus hair so the oil can travel down the hair and away from the pore.
There's little to no downtime after receiving this service. Only slight redness and possibly a feeling similar to being windburned may occur.
