As temperatures rise during the winter months, Texans are looking for any excuse to see snowfall for the holidays. Every holiday event is sprinkled with fake snow to give a true feeling of the season. We may be looking for white flakes to fall from the sky, but the last place we want to see them is falling from our faces.


The dry winter season leaves many of us with dehydrated skin. Our facial skin is especially sensitive to the elements, sometimes causing visible dry skin. One of the greatest ways to treat dry skin on your face is to invest in a dermaplaning treatment. Exposing the layers of skin beneath the surface gives you more confidence so you can leave the falling white flakes to the snow machines.

What Is Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is a technique that uses a blade to scrape off dry skin cells, dirt and peach fuzz from the surface of your face, neck, chest and/or hands. A small scalpel is used to exfoliate your skin by removing the unwanted layer with short swift strokes. Some compare it to shaving, claiming it is a woman’s version of removing unwanted hair and skin from your face.


Why Invest In Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning, also known as dermablading, is a technique that reveals a brighter, smoother layer of skin. For those who have problems with make-up caking to their peach fuzz or creating a glare in pictures, dermaplaning eliminates the fuzz completely, leaving an untouched layer of skin that is free of blemishes. If you are interested in a chemical peel or an intensive facial, most technicians will begin treatment by dermaplaning the top layer to allow the facial to fully affect your skin.


Dermaplaning is available for all skin types, no matter if you have extremely dry, flaking skin or oily with visible dead cells or peach fuzz. Women who are pregnant or people who are very sensitive to chemicals should consider dermaplaning as an alternative to facials which use harsher substances to cleans the skin.

What Are the Dermaplaning Results?


Twenty-one days of dead skin cells and peach fuzz build up is removed with the dermaplaning blade, leaving your skin soft and glowing like you have never experienced. Immediately following the procedure, you may have intensified redness which should go away within 24 hours. Technicians recommend wearing sunscreen no matter the time of year for a few days after the treatment to keep a lasting result without damaging the freshly exposed skin.
