Make Your Makeup Look Even Better After Dermaplaning

A smooth makeup application requires a smooth surface to start with. But how do you go about getting smoother skin without investing in chemical peels? Dermaplaning might be the solution you’re looking for. Here’s how dermaplaning can help you.


What Exactly Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic dermatology service that requires the use of a medical-grade surgical blade to gently scrape dead skin cells and unwanted hair from the surface of the skin. Since vellus hair and dead skin cell buildup can get in the way of skincare product penetration and smooth makeup application, dermaplaning offers a gentle solution to remove them for you.

Again, this treatment is an excellent option if your goals include smoother makeup application, less peach fuzz, or better skincare product penetration. In addition, this treatment can be a great investment to make before something like a laser skin treatment or a chemical peel. There are several other benefits to this procedure.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

No Downtime

Since this is a non-invasive cosmetic dermatology service, there’s zero recovery time or downtime required afterwards. In addition, this procedure is chemical free and typically doesn’t take very long. So if you have plans after your appointment, there is no need to cancel. You won’t face any risk of a skin rash and there will be no time spent recovering once you’re done.

Brighter Skin

Dull skin typically means there’s an untreated buildup of dead skin cells on your face. Fortunately, dermaplaning can help you get rid of that problem with ease. When you scrape away that dead skin cell buildup, you’re removing the barrier that’s preventing your skin from really glowing. Faking a natural glow won’t even be necessary once you learn just how brightening a dermaplaning treatment can be for your skin.

More Even Skin Tone

Dermaplaning might help you get smoother skin, but it can also help smooth out your skin’s complexion. And since discoloration and hyperpigmentation can prevent flawless makeup application, an even skin tone is a huge plus with this treatment. Not only will this help you get a better makeup application, but it can also contribute to your aesthetic goals. If you want to start wearing less foundation but you’re not quite confident enough in your skin, dermaplaning may help.

Better Product Absorption

Product penetration is key when you’re priming your skin for makeup application. And if you want your skin to better absorb product, then dermaplaning is an excellent treatment for you. With all of that dead skin and vellus hair gone, your skincare routine will be more effective than ever before.

Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can get in the way of a smooth makeup application. Fortunately, as with many other cosmetic dermatology services, dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. So if fine lines and wrinkles are getting in the way of your makeup application, but you don’t want to invest in dermal fillers or other invasive treatments, dermaplaning should definitely be on your skin treatment shortlist.

If you want smoother skin and flawless makeup application, dermaplaning is an excellent treatment option. If you have more questions about dermaplaning, set up an appointment at North Pacific Dermatology. today.
