Dermaplaning for Better Makeup Application

Dermaplaning is one of the most popular treatments to make your skin smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking. It is also a fantastic way to prep your skin for flawless makeup application, so it’s no wonder that Spectrum Dermatology has seen a surge in Dermaplane requests. Dermaplane can work for almost any type of skin, except for patients with active pustular acne.

What Is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is exactly what it sounds like: Your skin is “planed” with a professional-grade 10-inch scalpel with a sharp point. In the hands of an expert, the blade is precisely used against clean, dry facial and neck skin. It can be used on the cheeks, chin, forehead, nose, and neck. Instantly, skin is improved in both texture and tone.

If you’ve heard of “shaving your face” for instant exfoliation and to prepare your face for makeup, that’s a dangerous DIY trick that you don’t want to risk. Even when done well, it is nowhere close to being as effective as Dermaplaning. However, the two strategies are similar in goals.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning doesn’t only offer immediate benefits liked toned skin and the removal of “peach fuzz” to allow for better makeup application. In the long-term, it encourages cell turnover which means a reduction in acne scarring, wrinkles, and dark spots. The peach fuzz everyone has on their face keeps oil and debris trapped on the skin’s surface. It is often the perpetrator behind the dull-looking skin.

When you remove this fuzz, you let your skin care treatments and products fully do their job. They can penetrate the skin with ease and there is no risk of trapping products on the skin. Consider Dermaplaning an essential part of your “stacking” routine, since it complements nearly every other procedure or regimen.
