Having peach fuzz or vellus hair (short, fine hair on your face) is completely normal. We all have it and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. But, if you have got a lot of it on your face and you feel deeply uncomfortable, you can easily get rid of it. Today, there are myriad of ways to de-fuzz your face and one of the most effective ways to get rid of peach fuzz is Dermaplaning.
Wondering what is Dermaplaning?
Well, Dermaplaning is a virtually painless, non-invasive skin treatment that requires the use of sterile surgical scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells & peach fuzz.
The treatment is one of the most popular and requested skin treatments in Delaware.
“Dermaplaning makes the skin smoother, softer, and brighter. It can help reveal healthy skin beneath dead skin cell layers. It also helps improve the penetration of skincare products and preps the skin for additional procedures like lasers and peels,” says Brendan Camp, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist with MDCS Dermatology in New York.
You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you have superficial facial hair or “peach fuzz”, dry or dull skin, large pores, superficial lines, wrinkles or blackheads.
But, if you have active acne, sunburn, tan, an inflammatory skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis or a flaring rosacea breakout, you should avoid the procedure.
The treatment usually takes 10 to 20 minutes & can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or as part of a facial. Monthly treatments are recommended in order to maintain the results.
The best thing about the treatment is that it is absolutely safe for most people if performed by a certified dermatologist or esthetician. The only possible side effect of the procedure is slight redness, which fades almost immediately. Also, there is absolutely no downtime with this skin treatment & the results are immediate. You can make an appointment during lunch time & go right back to your work immediately after the treatment.
Wondering if at-home dermaplaning is safe? Well, it is best not to try dermaplaning at home. The procedure demands a skilled hand. So, it is extremely important to leave it to the professionals.
“Dermaplaning is a refined and careful approach to removing skin cells and vellus hair that should be done by a trained professional — it is not recommended to be done at home,” says Elena Tsiaklis, Senior Managing Esthetician at Skin Spa SoHo in New York.
The cost of dermaplaning usually depends on your location and can range anywhere from $75 to $150.
Dermaplaning Aftercare Tips to Follow
- Avoid staying in the sun for too long immediately following your treatment.
- Do not use scrubs or any other exfoliators for at least 7 days after treatment.
- Do not use any products that contains Retinol or harsh acids for 7 days after dermaplaning.
- Do not forget to wear sunscreen with a high SPF.
- Avoid excessive heat for at least 3 days after treatment.
- Avoid contact with chlorine (swimming pools, Jacuzzi) for at least 24 hours.
- Try to apply skin serums & moisturizers, especially those with hyaluronic acid, following your treatment.
