What is Aging?

The aging process occurs when the outer layers of the skin (epidermis) thin out and there is a reduction in the number of melanocytes decreases. Skin aging is classified by features such as wrinkling, loss of elasticity, and a rough textured appearance. The process of aging goes along with changes seen in the cutaneous cells as well as structural and functional changes in extracellular matrix components such as collagen and elastin.

Sign of Aging?

  • Rough, dry, itchy skin
  • The skin becomes slack
  • Transparent and thinning of skin
  • More easily bruised
  • More easily prone to lesions

Contibuting factors to aging:

  • Frequent exposure to UV light
  • Incorrect Diet
  • Lack of sleep
  • Collagen breakdown
  • Stress and smoking


Difference between Dermaplaning and Shaving

  • Dermaplaning is more aggressive than shaving.
  • Dermaplaning uses a surgical, disposable blade.
  • Dermaplaning cannot be performed at home.
  • Dermaplaning blades are singular, whereas razors are usually stacked with 2-3 blades.
  • Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation treatment intended to remove dead skin cells and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and improve skin tone and texture.
  • Dermaplaning should not be used to get rid of terminal hair (such as beard hair)
  • Dermaplaning should not be received any sooner than 21 days apart.

Dermaplaning Fighting against Aging

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An Aesthetic grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. While the procedure has been around for 35 years or more, it has recently gained popularity in the esthetics field. Maximum results are obtained by participating in a series of treatments plus following a home care regimen. The result is a brighter, more even complexion that appears dewy and relaxed. Perfect for those with sensitive or mature skin.

How dermaplaning works?

According to Aestheticians, dermaplaning is a simple, safe and noninvasive procedure that exfoliates the epidermis, while removing vellus hair and dead skin cells on the surface. The removal of dead epidermal cells allows for more effective products absorption and for the ingredients to penetrate more into the deeper layers of the skin.  Many aestheticians recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for other procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. Dermaplaning is most often used on clients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. To understand the logic, look to the boys. According to aesthetician Mary Schook, shaving provides more of a benefit for your man than simply removing scruff. “Men are mechanically exfoliating their faces each time that they shave. That’s why they sometimes appear to age more slowly than women do.”
