Dermaplaning offered at Lotus Health Medspa & Wellness Center in Brunswick, GA is an easy option to get you smooth, glowing skin! Dermaplaning is perfect before events, special occasions or for those who prefer a face free of “peach fuzz” for easier makeup application and better skincare efficacy.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a medical-grade surgical blade in short strokes at a 45 degree angle to remove the surface layer of dead skin, debris and hair. A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built up dead skin cells and debris from your skin.
Dermaplaning is completely pain free and non-invasive. The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin.
There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker- dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that grows back the same size and color. In addition, the way the surgical blade cuts the hair does not create the illusion of a thicker hair.
What are the Benefits?
Dermaplaning provides an effective and safe exfoliation treatment that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skin care products while making the skin look and feel smoother.
It is also beneficial for reducing the appearance of acne scars. The treatment also works to remove facial hair that can trap dirt and oils. Makeup looks smoother and more flawless and without the fine layer of hair on the face, light more easily refracts off of the skin creating an ethereal skin glow!
Please leave this procedure to the professionals and don’t try it at home. For the best highly customized and non-surgical cosmetic treatments including dermaplaning, Visit Lotus Health Medspa & Wellness Center in Brunswick GA.
Can Dermaplaning be used with other treatments?
Dermaplaning is an excellent preparation for treatments like Peels and laser treatments that work on deeper layers of the skin. By removing the top layer first with a Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion treatment, these more intense treatments can get right to work without needing to make their way through a layer of dead skin cells.
Will my hair come back thicker after a Dermaplaning treatment?
Many people worry that shaving will cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. Dermaplaning will not turn your peach fuzz into a beard. During a Dermaplane treatment, only vellus hair is removed. These are small, light hairs that are structurally different from darker and thicker terminal hair found elsewhere on the body. The nature of the hair will not change, so after one or many dermaplaning spa treatments, vellus hair will only grow back soft and light like it was initially.
Does Dermaplaning hurt?
Dermaplaning is completely painless. The expert medical aesthetician simply passes the blade over the face, and it feels just like any other type of shaving.
What is the downtime with Dermaplaning?
There is no downtime at all from a Dermaplaning treatment. Sunscreen following a treatment is recommended because a fresh layer of skin is exposed, but sunscreen is also recommended every day.
How often will I need to have Dermaplaning treatments?
Typically, Dermaplaning treatments are repeated based on the cycle of hair growth, which is about once a month.
