Why Dermaplaning Should Be Your New BFF
- Posted on: May 15 2018
In the world of skincare and anti-aging products and procedures, it can be hard to know what is a complete hoax and is worth saving your money on versus what’s worth investing in. Here at Gwinnett Dermatology, we pride ourselves on offering our patients the best state-of-the-art procedures that will give you real results that are worth bragging about. If you haven’t tried Dermaplaning yet, let’s take a closer look at why it should be your new BFF.
What Is Dermaplaning?
This procedure is often related to shaving your face. Why? Because it uses a surgical scalpel to gently shave the skin’s surface and remove the top layer of dead skin and peach fuzz. And because a surgical scalpel is used, we don’t recommend you trying a Dermaplaning DIY unless you are a licensed medical professional and have previous Dermaplaning training.
What Can It Do?
Dermaplaning isn’t just going to let you skip your next face waxing appointment— its main benefit is that it’s great for your skin. One of the unique theories behind Dermaplaning is that when men shave their face multiple times a week, they are actually exfoliating the skin— revealing healthier skin in the process. But because women rarely–if ever— shave their faces they tend to have more fine lines and wrinkles. With Dermaplaning, however, many of our female patients are able to get smoother, more exfoliated skin without having to pick up a razor every day.
Additionally, Dermaplaning can also help some patients cut down on acne-causing bacteria. Why? That peach fuzz on your face tends to cling to bacteria and germs and cause frequent acne breakouts. But because Dermaplaning gets rid of peach fuzz, it also tends to get rid of this bacteria as well.
If there’s one thing to know about Dermaplaning, it’s that everybody should at least give it a try. Want to schedule your first Dermaplaning appointment? Contact our office today and call: (770) 972-4845
