is dermaplaning good for my skin

Updated: May 9, 2023

With Gracie now offering the much loved Dermaplaning Facials, we have had a lot of enquiries asking for more information about the treatment and what it entails so we thought what better way than to write a little blog for you so you can decide if it is a treatment that may be beneficial to you.

Dermaplaning has been growing in popularity as a non-invasive cosmetic treatment for achieving brighter, smoother, and more radiant-looking skin. It involves using a sharp blade to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (aka "peach fuzz") from the face. But what makes dermaplaning so effective and why is our dermaplaning unlike any others around? Well firstly our dermaplaining is treated with a balm oil which is applied throughout the derma plane which allows the acid mate of the skin not to be compromised. As we are taking away the dead cells we are repairing the outer layer with a layer of gorgeous nourishment. Using an oil during the treatment enhances its benefits and leaves the skin protected and not compromised unlike a regular derma plane which can actually cause damage to the skin and do more harm than actually good for the skin.

Exfoliation is one of the primary benefits of dermaplaning. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and debris from the skin's surface, dermaplaning can help to reveal a brighter, smoother and glowing complexion. This exfoliating process can also help to unclog pores, which can reduce the likelihood of breakouts and blackheads.

But dermaplaning's benefits don't stop there. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help your skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective. This means that you'll get more bang for your buck when using products like serums, moisturisers, and masks after a dermaplaning treatment.

Another benefit of dermaplaning is that it can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The exfoliation process stimulates collagen production, which can help to plump and firm the skin. This can result in a more youthful-looking complexion.

Removing peach fuzz is also a significant advantage of dermaplaning. The vellus hair on your face can make the skin look dull and can prevent makeup from going on smoothly. Dermaplaning removes this hair, which can make the skin look smoother and more even, as well as allow makeup to go on more flawlessly.

Using an oil during the dermaplaning process can provide a few added benefits. The oil can help to lubricate the skin, making it easier for the dermaplaning blade to glide smoothly across the skin. It can also help to soothe and hydrate the skin after the treatment, as well as provide additional nourishment to the skin. However, it's crucial to use an oil that is specifically formulated for dermaplaning. Some oils may be too heavy or can clog pores, which can lead to breakouts. Always ensure that your skincare professional knows all abut their products and the ingredients in them!

In conclusion, dermaplaning is an effective non-invasive cosmetic treatment that provides many benefits for the skin. Its exfoliating properties, combined with its ability to improve product absorption, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and remove peach fuzz, make it an attractive option for anyone looking to enhance their skin's appearance. And using an oil during the dermaplaning process can help to further enhance these benefits, as long as you choose an oil that is safe and effective for use during the treatment.
