Do you Dermaplane?
Unless you're one of those people with your finger on the pulse of the latest beauty trends, you may not have heard of Dermaplaning, or if you have, maybe you don't really know what it is. We're so proud to now offer this service at Carl Keith Salon. Let us share with you everything you need to know before booking your next appointment!
What is Dermaplaning?
We know, it's getting harder and harder to keep up with the latest beauty trends that promise to keep us looking young and beautiful forever, so don't feel bad if you've never even hear of Dermaplaning. Let us help you out. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel (Don't worry, it's pain free!) to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin (yuck...but yay?) along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). Our highly qualified Beautician, Aleksandra, can carry out your procedure with immediate results of brighter, dewey skin!
What are the Benefits?
I mean this is really what you're here for, right!? Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil (ew..). Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair (brow, nose, underarm etc.), will not grow back thicker or darker. However, Dermaplaning is not suitable for those with excessive facial hair. The procedure is very gentle and does not cause any inflammation or upset the natural Ph balance of your skin. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel and I think that's something we can all get behind!
How often do you Dermaplan?
Excited about the benefits?! The good news is the procedure can be performed monthly, with no downtime post-treatment! Just an FYI- Dermaplaning is only performed on the face but does not involve shaping the brows.
How do I know if it's right for my skin type?
We all have different skin types, ranging from dry to oily to combination skin, so sometimes it's hard to know which things in the beauty world are best for YOU. Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age.
Dermaplaning may not be for you if you have very oily skin or active acne as well as anyone with thick, dark facial hair. Acne prone skin can become sore and irritated with this procedure. Those with excessive facial hair will notice stubble as it grows back and experience "razor rashes" (spots under the skin and ingrown hairs).
