What is dermaplaning and why is the facial shaving trend the favorite treatment of Instagram beauties?

Dermaplaning is a method of removing the surface layer of the skin in order to make the skin look more beautiful and revitalize it. It completely painlessly removes dead cells and facial hair and leaves the facial skin velvety smooth.

Dermaplaning is a favorite treatment among movie stars, and an increasing number of women are starting to do it at home.

Many experts claim that it is a method that is simple and fast and has a double effect - in addition to hair, it also removes dead skin cells, more precisely, it acts as an exfoliator. Shaving your face will help your face care products to be absorbed more easily and your make-up to adhere better to your skin.

Women's facial hair, unlike men's, is delicate and soft, so it is important to use the correct razor. It is a kind of "scalpel" with one cutter that simultaneously removes soft and small hairs from the face and removes dead skin cells. The result is exfoliation (peeling) and glowing skin.

The long-term benefits of dermaplaning are faster skin revitalization, fewer fine lines and wrinkles on the face, an even complexion, less visible scars and, of course, removal of facial hair.

You must have noticed that the facial skin of men in their thirties and forties looks better than that of many women of the same age. The point is that men remove dead skin cells by shaving and thus exfoliate.

The biggest misconception about shaving the face is the fear that because of shaving, stronger and darker hairs will start to grow. Cutting the hair at the root has no effect on the follicle that produces it and stimulates its growth.

Let us remind you that some of the famous ladies, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Cleopatra also used this technique. Shaving the face as part of tradition is also used in Japan, and we will admit that their skin looks very youthful.

The most important advantages of shaving your face that you will notice immediately:

  1. Smooth and radiant skin after exfoliation

One of the biggest advantages of dermaplaning is the gentleness of the treatment by which we remove dead skin cells, as opposed to some harsh scrubs that can damage the skin barrier.

  1. It will be easier to apply make-up

Make-up sits better on a face free of hair, and does not smudge or collect in certain places. Foundations and powders give the appearance of velvety skin.

However, it is not recommended to apply make-up immediately after the treatment, it is recommended to do the treatment in the evening so that the face is ready for make-up the next day

  1. Better absorption of facial care products

Products used in facial care will be better absorbed into the skin due to the exfoliation you will do. Immediately after the treatment, it is recommended to apply gentle and mild products and avoid retinols, AHA, BHA and similar acids to prevent skin irritation.

Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types, however, if your skin is in the process of inflamed acne or clean, hypersensitive skin prone to rashes, rosacea and similar conditions, dermatologists recommend that this treatment be performed by a professional and specialized person.
