The Dermaplaning Debate

The Dermaplaning Debate

Not All Superficial Exfoliations Are Equal 

Why do we all love to exfoliate our skins? Is it because of the squeaky-clean feeling that's left behind after scrub hits skin? Or perhaps the rewards that chemical exfoliants offer: removing dead surface skin cells and revealing a smoother and brighter, more glowy complexion? And all in an instant! With many in-clinic options to push the exfoliation joy (and benefits), we're sure by now you've heard about Dermaplaning. So why doesn't Skin Renewal offer it? Because we're always after the best superficial exfoliation rather than just superficial results.

Dermaplaning for Beginners

Dermaplaning is manual exfoliation, meaning it's a physical rather than a chemical process. With the use of a fine scalpel blade, an aesthetician can run it closely over the surface of the entire face. Why the buzz about this super-close "shave"? It's able to de-fuzz your face: those fine vellus hair – known as "peach fuzz" or "peach fluff" – will be whisked off. But remember, because the blade is handheld, it controls the treatment's depth and evenness; so there's room for human error, unlike another type of superficial exfoliation: microdermabrasion. With carefully selected vacuum settings, your treatment depths aren't entirely dependent on who's giving you the therapy. 

Dermaplaning and Your Skin

With dermaplaning, you also have to be aware of active skin conditions. Do you suffer from acne or rosacea? Superficial chemical peels are much safer. And they also work hard; skin tightening ingredients like DMAE mean anti-ageing benefits and not just a quick fix with a trendy exfoliation treatment label.

Dermaplaning and Results 

At Skin Renewal, we're utterly committed to holistic treatment and targeting your plan to give you the best results for your skin. We get the appeal of an instant superficial exfoliation like Dermaplaning. But the results are, sadly, short-lived. Because we're about backing the long-term, we will always suggest procedures that drive skin health and skin condition. Working just on the skin's surface, Dermaplaning cannot treat anything like laser toning (with a superficial laser) would. Want to improve tone and texture and get your glow on? Many conditions like hyperpigmentation and melasma, chickenpox scars, acne scars, dark spots, sunspots, fine lines, and wrinkles can be improved with laser toning.

Ready to go beyond the quick fix and find the best sustainable solution for your skin's needs? Get the advantages of superficial exfoliation and thorough skin treatment for boosted facial health; with the skilled Skin Renewal team – there are so many innovative options to help you achieve your goals.
