A buildup of dead skin cells on the facial skin is associated with acne, fine lines, a rough skin texture, and uneven pigmentation. It causes a person to have an overall dull complexion. One of the best ways to remove dead skin cells is with a treatment called dermaplaning. We invite you to learn more about it. Dermaplaning involves using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin cells from the top layers of your facial skin. One of our skin care professionals will gently perform this treatment on areas where you have a lot of dead skin cells built up. This provides the immediate benefit of revealing the fresh and healthy skin underneath. It provides the longer-term benefit of encouraging your skin to produce new skin cells at a quicker pace. One of the benefits that dermaplaning offers is that no harsh chemicals are used. This is good for individuals in the Washington, DC area who have sensitive skin. It is also great for people who do not qualify for treatments that involve the use of chemicals. For example, most pregnant women do not qualify for chemical peels. Another benefit that dermaplaning offers over other exfoliation methods is that it removes peach fuzz from the face. After you have dermaplaning performed and the peach fuzz has been removed, you will notice that your skin is a lot smoother. Makeup goes on a lot easier, and you are likely to notice that you do not have as many acne breakouts. You do not have to worry about peach fuzz growing in thicker and darker. When it grows back, it will look exactly as it did before. While dermaplaning definitely has some major benefits, it is not right for everyone. If you have extremely sensitive skin, this is something that you should mention to the skin care professional who is working with you during the consultation. Dermaplaning is a great option for individuals who want to remove dead skin cells and enjoy healthy skin. Talk to our staff at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery in Bethesda, MD to learn more.
