We recommend that you arrive at your session with a clean face. This means no makeup, creams, or other topical products. Immediately after treatment, you'll need to discontinue the use of most topical products for about 72 hours.
8. CAN I WEAR MAKEUP AFTER GETTING DERMAPLANING? There is no downtime associated with Dermaplaning, so you can go on with your day after getting the procedure and apply makeup immediately. Since the treatment gets rid of all the little hairs and dead skin cells on your face, your makeup will glide smoothly!
Well, since dermaplaning removes all the little hairs on your face, your makeup will actually glide on super smoothly. But hold up—although it's tempting to see the results right away, try to avoid slapping on a face full of makeup immediately after your dermaplaning treatment.
“Can you wear makeup after a facial?” This question seems to pop up repeatedly, and the answer to that is, “Ideally, no.” Immediately following a facial, it's probably best to stay away from your makeup (at least for 24 hours).
After your dermaplaning treatment, you need to follow a simple skincare routine for 2 weeks. Instead of using any harsh cleaning products, use a very mild cleanser to clean your face. Also, you should apply moisturizers as well as skin serums, especially those with hyaluronic acid, after the treatment.
After dermaplaning at home, your skin will be sensitive. Applying a good quality toner will help calm your skin down and minimize the risk of further irritation. We recommend the EltaMD Skin Recovery Toner for the best results. This oil-free and pH-balanced toner will help restore your skin barrier.
After microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink and feel dry and tight (like sunburn or windburn) for about 24 hours. Use moisturizer and broad spectrum sunscreen. Some types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
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.
It's common to feel a little stubble as your hair starts growing back in after dermaplaning. This doesn't mean that your hair is thicker or more coarse. It has to do with the way each hair was cut straight across. The hair feels different to you, but it's the exact same texture and color as it was before dermaplaning.
The Cons of Dermaplaning
Compared to other hair-removal treatments like waxing and tweezing, dermaplaning can be a bit more expensive. And unlike waxing, dermaplaning does not fully remove hair from its follicle, so hairs might grow back a bit sooner than other methods.
Your face will be a little red after extraction, and you might be tempted to reach for the concealer, but resist. Applying makeup right after you've thoroughly cleansed your pores will erase all of your hard work.
Most makeup is made from an oil base or uses minerals that block pores and potentially interfere with natural skin shedding, both of which can make it more difficult for your skin to recover after this treatment.
Russell suggests that dermaplaning candidates should avoid retinoids for 3 to 5 days before treatment. Candidates should also avoid retinoids for 2 to 3 days after dermaplaning. Avoid any physical scrubs for 2 to 3 days after treatment. Avoid makeup for 24 hours after treatment.
While your medical esthetician will help you determine how often you should undergo treatment, you should at least wait three or four weeks in between sessions. Dermaplane is a deep exfoliation, removing two or three weeks' worth of dead skin. Give your skin time to resurface in between treatments.
Clean your face straight after the treatment using a wet cloth and rehydrating toner to remove any dead skin cells left behind. Use a rich moisturizer once you have thoroughly dried the skin. Continue to use it for 4-6 days after your treatment as this will prevent any excessive peeling.
Dermaplaning includes using a scalpel (yes, like the surgical one) while microdermabrasion is done with a small electric device. Microdermabrasion involves spraying your skin with an exfoliant while simultaneously sucking debris from your skin. This exposes a new layer of skin and cleans the pores til they are bare.
How often can I have microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every eight weeks depending on your skin's tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. Many people choose to start with weekly treatments for three sessions, then change to a monthly maintenance regimen.
As an at-home option, you can shave your upper lip hair (a.k.a dermaplaning), which removes the hair and gently exfoliates the skin for a smooth-looking complexion. If you're looking for a more permanent solution, laser hair removal is your best bet.
But unlike facial shaving, skin needs to be completely dry and free of oils for dermaplaning. "The dryer your skin, the better the results," Benjamin says.
We recommend that you perform dermaplaning after a warm shower, as the skin is not only cleansed but is also soft and well prepared for exfoliation.
Right after dermaplaning is also a great time to apply a hydrating serum and moisturizer to give your skin and extra boost.
The process of Dermaplaning stimulates the deeper layers of your skin (the dermis) and results in a stimulating effect which causes the skin to produce more collagen. The production of collagen increases skin tightness and skin texture... both incredible benefits when it comes to the aging process.
Before the Dermaplaning procedure begins, your Dermaplane UK Aesthetics Technician will ensure that all makeup is removed, and then double cleanse the skin using a natural and organic cleanser. The cleanser will be massaged into the face using circular motions to remove the remaining makeup and dirt.
