MEDICAL FACIAL- Part 2 - Dermaplaning - Is it a Hype or Reality ?
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses a specialized blade — similar to a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and hairs.
📌 Claims: smoothing skin and removing “peach fuzz, ” proponents claim that dermaplaning can help with acne scars, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and small wrinkles.
Today we have Dermatologist dr Sonam clearing the air around dermaplaning.
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving, but in place of a razor, it uses a scalpel-type blade to remove skin cells, hair, and other debris that may be present on the surface of the skin.
The continuous exposure of the top layer of skin to UV rays, environmental toxins, and irritants means that it may begin to appear dull. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin to reveal new skin cells that may make a person’s skin appear smoother and glowing. It can be safely done with a professional every 2 weeks.
Dermaplaning provides several potential benefits, all of which are cosmetic. There are no medical reasons to get dermaplaning treatment.
✅It is the most desirable procedure for those with a heavy peach fuzz on the face, for 2 reasons
1.This completely removes the fine hair and allows for a better instant glow (because of better refraction of light)
2. It allows makeup to set well on the smoother skin..providing a better clean and complete coverage.
🟧 Some other potential benefits include:
1. reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, or sun-damaged skin
restoring a youthful glow to the skin
2. removing small hairs that can hold onto oil and debris
Reports on the effectiveness of dermaplaning are mostly based on smaller group/personal findings, and treatment results may vary from person to person.
🔥 Possible risks of dermaplaning include:
1.small nicks or cuts
2.redness on the skin
3.infections or scarring, although these are not common
✅ Expert's Take :
"In my aesthetic practise where we have to-be-brides forming a major segment of work, we are constantly on the hunt for procedures that could deliver an instant GLOW or an Event ready face." says board certified Dermatologist Dr Sonam.
She further adds dermaplaning becomes very useful at such times, but that being said I have not been able to observe any major long term benefits with dermaplaning as a standalone.
At our centre we usually combine dermaplaning with a host of other technologies like a mild skin renew treatment, skin tightening or a laser toning facial after assessing their individual needs.
By adding a derma planing we achieve a more uniform skin thickness which allows our patented skin - actives to be delivered to the deeper layers and have their Best expected outcomes.
However she warns it is not advisable to use a home dermaplaning kit. Only a certified or well-trained professional should perform the dermaplaning procedure in a clean and appropriate environment.
If a person wishes to use a home kit, they should do so with caution. The risk of complications and poor results will be much higher, adds the Expert.
