Why Dermaplaning Is The Best Exfoliant For Your Skin | Macro Beauty | Refinery29


You have to trust your provider because she
is literally holding a knife across your face. One wrong move and you will get nicked. Hi, I’m Nina and I’m getting a dermaplane
facial done today. My skin is really dry normally. I never go out into the Sun and it flakes a lot and I have a lot of whiteheads. My biggest concern really is the dryness and
then the wrinkles forming around my eyes. My name is Alexa Yontz and I am a medical
esthetician at Facile Dermatology and Boutique. I’ve been a medical esthetician for almost
30 years now. I have done more dermaplane facials than I
can probably count. Dermaplane is really ideal for patients who
have very dry dehydrated skin. Patients are really amazed at how much peach
fuzz they have removed from their skin. A lot of people like the dermaplaning because
of the smooth texture it leaves afterwards. Makeup goes on smoother, your products absorb
better, it just gives an all-over better glow to the skin. I’m mostly concerned about the blade cutting
off essentially the top layer of my skin. I’m going to start cleansing. I really try to tell everybody not to talk when I’m doing this because I do have a straight-edge blade in my hand so I don’t want to nick you. So, no more talking. Alexa takes the 10 gauge surgical blade and
starts scraping all of the dead skin and the hairs off my face. I can see it from the corner of my eye coming
off in these little tufts but it actually feels really good. We are going to proceed with the red light
which is light stim. Oh, anti-aging! Red light therapy helps with any kind of inflammation.
It also helps to stimulate collagen production as well cut any redness within the skin. It’s a great way to end any treatment. After the red light therapy Alexa removes
the goggles and then she applies sunscreen to protect my exfoliated skin from UV rays. It’s like you just took off like so much
stress in my life. After 12 years dermaplaning has come very
natural to me. I feel very confident treating patients with that
surgical blade in my hand. One of the biggest questions with dermaplaning
is if the hair grows back thicker or darker? And it does not, but it typically grows back
just as fine as it was within a few weeks. After dermaplane I usually recommend that
my patients avoid any chemicals to lessen the sensitivity of the skin. I’m pretty happy with the results of my
dermaplane facial. My skin feels smooth, it feels heavily exfoliated. I was definitely not surprised by how much
dead skin I have on my face. I would recommend dermaplaning to anybody
that I know who wants a really good exfoliating procedure. I wish I could have more cleansing, more exfoliating,
more everything. I mean it’s easy to get addicted to getting
a life-changing facial. Thanks so much for watching Refinery29. For more videos like this, click here or to
