If you’re looking for an easy way to reinvigorate your appearance, we at Bevelup in Tampa, FL, have the perfect solution: dermaplaning. Quick and pain-free, this treatment exfoliates skin to unclog pores, remove peach fuzz, and deliver a visible glow. And if you still have questions, we’re here to give you all the information you need.
What Is Dermaplaning?
This exfoliation treatment gently removes the very top layer of skin, where dead cells sit and accumulate. It also removes fine vellus hairs more commonly known as peach fuzz to leave the face ultra-soft and smooth. Darker and more visible hairs also get removed to reveal the healthy skin that lies beneath.
By peeling away dead cells, this treatment – also known as a scalpel facial – helps new cells rise to the surface. The body performs this process naturally during cellular turnover. The help provided by DP, however, means cells renew more quickly. Patients in turn look more youthful without having to endure painful therapies or excessive downtime.
A Long List of Benefits
One of the most commonly cited effects is a fully rejuvenated appearance. Within minutes, skin looks glossy, dewy, and more refreshed. Skin tone also gets evened out as clusters of dead cells are removed. Rough spots get smoothed over, and the complexion gets brightened. In fact, many of the benefits delivered by harsher treatments can also be enjoyed with a scalpel facial, including:
- Better absorption of at-home skincare products
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- A more polished makeup application
- Cleaner and smaller pores
Even if you have only fine facial hair, you’ll be amazed at how good you look once it’s removed. Treatment is safe for all skin tones and types, and acne sufferers can also witness transformational benefits. Although DP is not recommended for patients with current breakouts, it does clean pores and remove trapped dirt and oils to minimize the likelihood of future breakouts.
How It Works
DP is similar in premise to shaving. We hold a sterile, medical-grade blade at a 45-degree angle and deftly glide it across your skin. But don’t let the thought of a blade approaching your face deter you. Treatment sessions are gentle and relaxing thanks to the delicate feathering strokes used. And we ensure all intended spots are targeted to provide the most thorough treatment possible.
Most appointments last less than an hour, and after, you can return to your normal schedule. DP is a great way to prepare for a wedding or other important event. It can be used as a standalone treatment or to complement other therapies like injectables and facials.
Who Is This Right for?
We assess treatment candidacy on an individual basis, but generally speaking, anyone who wants to eliminate peach fuzz and reduce the appearance of fine lines and blemishes can benefit from a scalpel facial. It improves the overall look and health of the skin and is safe even for pregnant patients or those with very sensitive skin. We may, however, recommend alternative treatments for those with:
- An inflammatory skin condition like eczema
- An active rosacea breakout
- Active acne
- A sunburn or tan
The Easy Way to Beautiful Skin
With just a short, relaxing session, DP can deliver the luminous skin you crave. A medical-grade scalpel removes all debris from the face, including vellus hair and dead skin cells. You immediately see a softer and more radiant complexion, and results can be maintained with regular touch-ups.
