Dermaplaning is a popular exfoliation treatment that can be used by most people to refine the appearance of the skin. At Steel Creeke Dermatology in Charlotte, NC, we believe that this non-invasive treatment can be a great addition to your continued skincare plan, particularly if you want to renew your skin.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
There are several notable benefits to using regular dermaplaning treatments. For example, this treatment is an ideal option for people who have sensitive skin that may not be able to use other treatments, such as laser treatments or chemical peels. If you have mild to moderate superficial concerns, then this exfoliation treatment can be a good staple in your treatment plan so that you can maintain your desired skin appearance. Some other benefits of this treatment include:
This treatment is low risk because it is non-invasive, non-chemical, and non-energy. Because the treatment only uses a sterile blade to exfoliate the upper layers of the skin, it will not cause any allergic reaction or potential skin scarring. If you are looking for a simple treatment that does not involve much preparation or aftercare, then this low-risk treatment is a good option.
As an exfoliation treatment, you will notice an immediate improvement and the appearance of your skin tone and texture. When your skin is freshly exfoliated, it will have a youthful glow for several days. These fast results are one of the biggest reasons why people incorporate this treatment into their treatment plan.
Smooth, soft skin is a goal for many people. Dead skin cells have a habit of piling up on the skin and creating an uneven skin texture that can lead to dryness and dullness. The key to having smoother skin is using an exfoliation treatment that fully removes dead skin cells.
In addition to removing dead skin cells from the superficial layer of the skin, this treatment can also help you achieve smoother skin by removing vellus hair or peach fuzz. Although peach fuzz is normal, some people may feel that the hair on their face is somewhat excessive and causes their face to become dry or dull in appearance. By removing this hair, you can achieve smoother skin.
Minimize Pores and Scars
This treatment is commonly used to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and certain types of atrophic scarring. Scarring and enlarged pores can both look more severe when there are layers of dead skin cells. By reducing the dead skin on the surface of your face, the overall appearance of your skin will improve.
Additionally, there is some evidence that the increase in blood circulation as a result of this treatment can also help produce moderate amounts of collagen in the skin, which can also tighten the appearance of pores and make scarring appear less visible.
Reduce Acne Breakouts
This treatment is often used by acne-sufferers to reduce acne breakouts. One of the biggest causal factors of a breakout is layers of dead skin cells that are not shed correctly, which leads to clogged pores and bacteria trapped on the skin. By having regular exfoliation treatments, you can reduce your breakouts and minimize your acne symptoms.
More Effective Skincare
If you want your skincare products to be as effective as possible, then it’s important to regularly exfoliate your skin to ensure that your products have adequate penetration. Your skincare products will work best when they can actively enhance the health and function of lower dermal layers, but dead skin cells on the skin surface can block your skincare products from being effective. With regular exfoliation, you’ll get better product absorption and efficacy.
Promotes Cellular Turnover
Regulating your cellular turnover is important for many aspects of your skin health. The natural cellular turnover cycle generally takes 28 to 40 days to complete, but many people still struggle with correctly shedding skin cells thanks to stress, environmental pollutants, genetics, and more. A regular exfoliation treatment can promote healthier cellular turnover.
Reduce Blemishes and Aging
This treatment is an ideal option for reducing blemishes and other visible signs of aging, such as fine lines. Dark spots, some types of sun damage, blemishes, and mild wrinkles can all improve with regular exfoliation. This is because removing dead skin cells can scrape away dark spots that accumulate on the skin surface over time and with repeated sun exposure.
Many Good Candidates
Most people are good candidates for this treatment because it is not invasive and doesn’t use chemicals. Candidates for this treatment include people who have mild to moderate superficial concerns, people who have sensitive skin, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you aren’t sure whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment, a consultation will be able to assess how appropriate this treatment is for your skin type and skin tone.
