Dermaplaning In New Jersey
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.” It’s different from dermabrasion, where an aesthetician or doctor uses a high-speed, rotating brush to exfoliate the skin. With dermaplaning, they use a scalpel or a tool called a dermatome.
One of the most commonly cited benefits of this treatment is the rested, rejuvenated appearance it gives patients. The skin on the face takes on a smoother and more youthful look, and patients appear more relaxed and less stressed. But scalpel facials also offer a number of other benefits as well, and some of them are in line with what you’d expect from far harsher facial treatments.
Dermaplaning Side Effects
Most people have little to no irritation or reaction. Short-term side effects may include:
- Red and swollen skin from the scraping
- A burning or tingling sensation for about 48 hours after the procedure
It’s not common for your hair to grow back thicker or darker. But in rare cases, dark hair may grow near your chin or “sideburns.”
