Over time, your skin’s texture starts to change. The amount of time you spend outside, certain lifestyle habits, and much more can have a big effect on the way your skin looks and feels. While there are a number of procedures out there to enhance the skin, many of them involve extensive surgical procedures, strong chemicals, and unwanted prescription medications. Dermaplaning treatments are a minimally-invasive option that can improve your skin inside and out. It offers a number of great benefits. Not only will you experience a decrease in acne scars, texture issues, and hyperpigmentation, but it can also make your makeup look much better.
What is Dermaplaning?
With dermaplaning treatments, a thin scalpel is used to gently scrape off the top layer of skin. When that top layer of skin is removed, your body works to change on a cellular level. There are multiple layers of skin. The top layer is typically comprised of dead skin cells. When it’s removed, your body reacts to the change by producing more skin. Not only that, but the production of collagen and elastin is increased.
Collagen and elastin play a vital role in your skin’s elasticity and softness. Unfortunately, these two unique proteins can decrease as you age. With dermaplaning, you can kickstart the process. Over time, your new skin will make its way up to the surface level. You’ll experience a youthful glow and a new soft texture.
What About Makeup?
The benefits of dermaplaning don’t stop there. One of the first things you’ll notice about your skin after treatment is that makeup is much easier to apply. This is because dermaplaning removes fine hair from your face. Peach fuzz, or vellus hair, is something that affects people of all ages. While it’s difficult to see with the naked eye, a layer of makeup will make it stand out. The makeup can start to cake up and make your hard work look like a mask. Once that peach fuzz is removed with dermaplaning, you have a smooth surface to work with. Your products will glide on your skin, making it easier to get a natural look.
Skin products tend to be more effective as well. The removal of dead skin cells makes your skin more accepting of serums, moisturizers, and toners. Your products will absorb into the skin much easier, allowing you to take advantage of more of the active ingredients they contain.
Dermaplaning treatments are a quick easy option that can help many different people get the skin they’ve always wanted. The non-surgical nature of this treatment makes it more accessible to those who aren’t candidates for other options. There’s very little downtime, so you can get treatment whenever it’s most convenient for you. If you’d like to learn more, get in touch with The Signature Beauty Box to schedule a consultation!
