Exfoliate with Dermaplaning
It’s almost Oscar time! And a skin treatment that exfoliates is all the rage among celebs getting red carpet ready. It’s called dermaplaning and it’s been a Hollywood secret for years (some say Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe were devotees). Now, Smooth Synergy is offering this star-studded exfoliation treatment! Here’s more about the benefits of dermaplaning and how to get the glamorous glow of your favorite A-listers:
How and Why to Exfoliate the Skin?
First things first: before we get into specifics about the benefits of dermaplaning, let’s talk exfoliation. Even if you’re cleaning, toning and moisturizing on a daily basis, your skin care routine isn’t complete — until you add exfoliating your skin to the list. That’s because dead skin cells are in a constant state of piling up on the surface of your skin, causing everything from dull, dreary skin to clogged pores to acne and blemishes. Exfoliation works to remove the top layer of skin cells and reveal the fresh new skin underneath. It also speeds up cellular turnover, which means healthier looking skin and fewer fine lines on the face.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is performed by an esthetician, who uses a small, sterile blade in a gentle upward motion on the face at a 45 degree angle, which works to remove vellus hair (aka peach fuzz), resurface the skin and improve skin texture and tone. It’s a quick and pain-free procedure that can be done on the face, under the chin and on the neck.
It’s not a stretch to say that clients rave about the instant, baby smooth skin that is revealed following a dermaplaning treatment. The procedure can take off three weeks worth of dead skin cells, meaning it will last too — for up to four weeks. Beyond a healthy looking glow, another benefit of dermaplaning is that your skin care products will be able to penetrate more easily and effectively and makeup will go on more smoothly and evenly without all that vellus hair in the way.
Dermaplaning uses a professional blade, which means it’s best done by a licensed esthetician. An esthetician is trained to know how many passes to take over the skin, in order for you to get the right amount of exfoliation for your skin.
Layering Dermaplaning with Other Skin Treatments
Another reason to seek out a professional esthetician is that dermaplaning is often recommended in conjunction with other skin treatments for best exfoliating results. For example, you may want to follow a dermaplaning procedure with a light peel, a facial and a mask with infused oxygen to really make your skin glow. A trained esthetician can analyze your skin and make recommendations about what is the best way to exfoliate your skin to provide the results you desire.
