The skin on your face needs extra attention. With all the exposure to the elements, and now with face masks potentially clogging pores and trapping natural oils, you may have noticed that your skin isn’t quite as bright and glowing as it used to be. Add to that the problem of excess “peach fuzz” facial hairs, and it can be tough to get through your daily makeup routine and look your best. To get your skin back on track, the professional estheticians here at Cameo Salon & Spa recommend dermaplaning for smooth, glowing skin.
What exactly is dermaplaning, and how is it different from other treatments like microdermabrasion?
Everyone’s skin is covered in a coating of dead skin cells, and that’s what can cause your skin to look dull and dry. This layer won’t come off with regular cleansing and requires the help of a professional to remove it safely and effectively. Another problem with facial skin is that it tends to have “peach fuzz,” those tiny, barely visible hairs that make it hard to blend makeup properly, making it clumpy and more likely to clog your skin’s pores.
Dermaplaning solves both these issues. It’s a professional exfoliating treatment that removes that layer of dead skin cells so your skin can begin producing healthy replacement cells. It also removes that peach fuzz hair, so it makes your skin soft, healthy, and glowing.
Many people mistake dermaplaning for microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is also an effective exfoliating treatment that uses gentle abrasives to remove that excess layer of dead skin cells. It has many of the same benefits as dermaplaning, except it will not remove peach fuzz hair. Everyone needs professional exfoliating treatments for their facial skin, so it’s important to have the expert estheticians at Cameo assess your individual needs and determine which treatment is right for you.
Won’t removing the hair make it grow back thicker?
This is usually the first question we get about dermaplaning since most people have tried using a razor on their legs or other areas. When shaving, you probably notice that hairs appear thicker and darker when they grow back, but that’s because these hairs are thicker to begin with, so the angle of the cut is visible. Peach fuzz hairs on your face are different. Called vellus hairs, they are much finer than the hair on the rest of your body and don’t change when they grow back, so there is no need to worry about them appearing more visible later. And since you’ll love the results of dermaplaning, you’ll want to come back after the natural growth cycle to get soft, smooth skin once again!
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
There are several benefits when you have regular dermaplaning treatments, including:
- Removal of peach fuzz hair
- Softer, smoother skin
- Easier to apply and blend makeup
- Fresher, brighter looking skin
- More even skin tone
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Smaller, less visible pores
- Reduced acne scarring
- Skin rejuvenation with better cell replacement and collagen production
Best of all, your dermaplaning appointment gives you time to relax and unwind from the stress of the day. Our clients find their dermaplaning treatments to be enjoyable and relaxing, so they feel rejuvenated after their appointments and ready to take on the day.
Should I have a facial or a dermaplaning treatment?
For optimal results, we recommend both treatments for most people. Dermaplaning is even more effective when done along with a customized professional facial treatment, so ask your Cameo esthetician about how both services can provide you with unbeatable results for your skin.
