How Dermaplaning Smoothes Your Skin

Achieving smooth, flawless skin is a goal many women have for themselves. Even skin tone and a clear complexion are seen as signs of health and overall wellness. Stress, dry skin, and sun damage can cause rough, dull-looking skin, no matter how much moisturizer or makeup you apply. As you age, these skin difficulties can get worse unless you take steps to slow the progression.

Dermaplaning helps to reverse these skin symptoms and leaves your face feeling smooth and refreshed after just one session. Your clean, resurfaced skin is more accepting of skincare products and makeup, a factor that has helped to make dermaplane treatments one of the most popular facial services available in our salons and day spas in the Columbus, Ohio area.

What Happens During Dermaplaning?

When you come to your dermaplane session, your esthetician will help you relax on a spa table and ensure you’re comfortable and cozy. She will then thoroughly clean all areas of your face, to ensure every bit of makeup, dirt or excess oils have been removed. Then, she will perform an expert evaluation of your skin condition and its needs before beginning your service.

Your esthetician will gently use a sterile, tool over your skin at a 45-degree angle, removing dead skin cells. You can actually see the skin flakes and hairs gather against the tool as your esthetician works, so you know it is an effective process!

Then, depending on the dermaplane service you selected, your esthetician may steam your skin before performing manual extractions of blackheads or other clogged pores. Usually your session ends with the application of a face mask to soothe your skin. Not all dermaplaning services are the same, so check with your esthetician to determine the best option for you.

Dermaplane treatments are actually quite straightforward and painless, but require the precision of a trained professional to achieve the best results. We don’t recommend attempting to perform dermaplaning on your own face, because you can run the risk of razor burn, cuts, or even infection if not performed properly.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a day spa skin treatment that uses a small tool to slough dead skin cells and other impurities from your face. Dermaplane treatments are beneficial for people suffering from acne scars, dull or dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and even sun damage. These treatments are completely safe and offer lots of benefits for the health of your skin.

Dermaplane treatments remove layers of dead skin cells and stimulate the cell regeneration process, so your body creates healthy, fresh skin cells.

Dermaplaning removes the fine hairs on your face, sometimes called “peach fuzz.” These hairs are completely normal and generally harmless. However, for some people, they are responsible for trapping dirt and oils and causing acne breakouts or other skin conditions, like rashes. Without these tiny hairs to hold bacteria and irritants against your skin, you can help prevent breakouts.

As a result of this manual exfoliation, your skin is left perfectly smooth and soft. A smooth skin surface accepts lotions, serums, and even makeup more readily, so you may find your makeup application is easier and more flawless, too.

Dermaplaning Side Effects

Dermaplane treatments are non-invasive and have virtually no side effects, especially when compared to laser treatments or chemical peels. You can even enjoy a dermaplaning session on your lunch break and go right back to work. After your session, you may notice a bit of redness, which will subside within three days after the procedure, when you’ll be able to fully appreciate your results.

There are no activity restrictions after dermaplaning. However, to help protect your skin, apply sunscreen every day, but especially before going outside. We recommend avoiding sun exposure altogether for the first few days after your treatment.

To maintain your results, estheticians at Kenneth’s Hair Salons and Day Spas recommend receiving dermaplane treatments every month. Each session removes up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin and other build-up, leaving your face looking refreshed and feeling extra smooth.

Types of Dermaplane Treatments

At Kenneth’s Hair Salons and Day Spas, our professional estheticians offer two world-class dermaplane treatments you can choose from, depending on your needs and frequency of visits. When you call us to make an appointment, let us know which dermaplane treatment you’d like to receive.

Our 75-minute dermaplane facial consists of manual exfoliation with the dermaplaning tool, followed by steaming, extractions, and a rejuvenating face mask. The session also includes a hand massage. Choose the dermaplane facial if this is your first dermaplaning service, or if it has been more than a month since your last appointment for best results.

You can receive our 45-minute dermaplane maintenance service every month. Our esthetician will perform a manual dermaplane exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and small hairs, resulting in glowing skin. Consider this a touch-up on a previous dermaplaning service, but feel free to pamper yourself with the full facial anyway -- you deserve it!
