What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is basically face-shaving, but with a surgical-grade scalpel in the hands of a licensed esthetician. The blade is scraped over your skin surface to gently remove dead surface cells and that little layer of peach-fuzz facial hair. Dermaplaning provides a chemical-free exfoliation, leaving the skin ultra smooth, fresh and glowing. Additionally, when you apply your makeup afterwards, you’ll notice it goes on incredibly smooth. Which is why dermaplaning is such a demand as a pre-night out treatment. 
While it might sound tempting to just get rid of these hairs at home with a $2 blade, professionals at Mara’s Med Spa warn against it. A blade from the drugstore will not be as sharp or as effective as the medical grade scalpel used at Mara’s Med Spa. There is also a chance that you will cut yourself in the process and cause scarring.

What Are The Uses Of Dermaplane Treatments?

Anyone suffering from rough, dry skin, or any other skin irregularities will benefit greatly from dermaplane treatments. It’s also great for diminishing wrinkles and fine lines that damage skin. It also helps superficial pigmentation or mild scars that result from acne.
Mara says one of the first things that people ask about dermaplaning is: Will my hair grow back thicker? The answer is no. No matter the hair removal method that you use, it has no affect on how your hair grows. The speed of hair growth is all a matter of genetics. So there’s no need to worry about gaining a 5 o’clock shadow once you remove the hair. 
After your dermaplaning appointment, you can expect your skin to be red and possibly mildly swollen. Mara’s Med Spa highly recommends the use of sunscreen afterwards, since skin is more susceptible to sunlight damage. After the treatment, your skin will have a more youthful appearance and look brighter.
