The Myths & Realities of Dermaplaning

Today, we’re spilling the tea on all things dermaplaning. Over time, there have been some misconceptions surrounding the procedure. But, we're here to debunk those common myths and reveal the magic it holds for your skin. Ready to dive in?

So, in short, what is dermaplaning?

Without giving too much away before we conquer those myths, dermaplaning is a highly effective treatment which uses a scalpel to gently scrape away the outer layer of dead skin cells.

Common benefits of dermaplaning include:

  • Adding a youthful glow to the skin

  • Reduce fine lines

  • Improving skin texture

  • Reducing the appearance of acne scarring.

The treatment is painless and requires no downtime, making it a convenient option for those seeking immediate results and a vibrant, youthful glow. Now that you understand in simple terms what dermaplaning is, let’s get to the myths.

Myth 1: Dermaplaning is only for facial hair removal.

Reality: Dermaplaning isn't just about whisking away facial fuzz. It's like a superhero exfoliation treatment that sweeps away dead skin cells, unveiling a radiant complexion that'll have you shining brighter than the Yorkshire sun! It's a multitasking superstar, suitable for all skin types, regardless of your hair growth situation

Dermaplaning goes beyond simply removing peach fuzz. The treatment involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the outer layer of dead skin cells and debris, leaving your skin smoother and more radiant. It's like a breath of fresh air for your face, allowing your skincare products to penetrate better and work their magic.

Myth 2: Dermaplaning leads to cuts and scars.

Reality: Safety first, always! Professional aestheticians are scalpel superheroes who know how to wield that surgical blade without leaving a trace. As a result, there shouldn’t be any harm to your face; just a gentle, thorough exfoliation that'll leave your skin feeling flawless.

It's understandable to have concerns about the use of a scalpel during dermaplaning. However, when performed by skilled professionals, the risk of cuts or scars really is minimal. At Beauty Within Salon, our in-house experts have undergone rigorous training to ensure they execute dermaplaning with precision and caution. You can trust us to pamper your skin and leave it looking rejuvenated without any lasting marks.

Myth 3: Dermaplaning causes hair to grow back thicker and darker.

Reality: Be rest assured, dermaplaning won't transform you into Chewbacca overnight! Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation method that doesn't alter your hair's growth patterns or texture. The misconception that hair grows back thicker and darker is simply not true. The hair that grows back after dermaplaning is the same old lovely fuzz you've always had.

But, here's the secret: by removing that peach fuzz, dermaplaning lets your skincare products work their magic even better, leaving you with a silky smooth canvas for makeup that'll keep you looking and feeling gorgeous all day! It's the ultimate secret weapon for achieving that lit-from-within glow.

Myth 4: Dermaplaning causes skin to become sensitive or irritated.

Reality: This treatment is like a calming balm for sensitive souls. If you have sensitive skin, you might be skeptical about dermaplaning exacerbating your skin concerns. However, dermaplaning can actually help alleviate sensitivity and irritation. By removing the dead skin cells that can trap impurities and irritants, dermaplaning leaves your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. It's like a soothing massage for your face, revealing a calmer and more balanced complexion.

Here at Beauty Within, we take post-treatment care seriously. Therefore, following your dermaplaning session, we provide tailored skincare recommendations to keep your skin in its best condition. We'll guide you on the right products and techniques to maintain the results and ensure your skin stays hydrated, calm, and protected from environmental stressors.

Myth 5: Dermaplaning is not suitable for all skin types.

Reality: Dermaplaning is a versatile treatment that can be tailored to address various skin types and concerns. Whether you struggle with dryness, oiliness, or sensitivity, expert aestheticians will assess your skin and customise the dermaplaning procedure accordingly. Trained professionals understand that each person's skin is unique, and will take pride in delivering personalised treatments that provide optimal results for all.
