In general dermaplaning side effects are not prominent except a few minor. Dermaplning exfoliates the dead skin cells as well removes fine and colorless hairs from face leaving a healthier skin for you. But in some cases it is not at all applicable and even can result worse than before.
According to a British Skin Foundation specialist Dr. Anjali Mahto for those who possess normal skin can take dermaplaning very easily but a woman who suffers with excessive facial hairs due to hormonal imbalance should not go for procedure of dermaplaning. To avoid any major side effect, you must need to select the top quality dermaplaning tool according your needs.
Though the dermaplaning offers a flawless and fuzz free face spot prone skin is not at all suitable for this treatment. In such case the side effects may appear as soaring and looked unnervingly red. In order to subside the uncomfortable side effect it may take 2 or 3 days even.
The removal of facial hairs facilitates the well setting of makeup but the growth of hairs again seems darker and thicker which is a myth. This is may be partially true but not so effective and cannot be taken to be a side effect.
After a month’s treatment with dermaplaning you may notice stubbly shadows under the skin which is not at all desirable. It is found that those who have excess hairs should better go for waxing, threading and leaser treatment instead of facial dermaplaning.
Although these treatments do not permanently remove the hairs and maintenance treatment may be required. They are still better options than dermaplaning. It has been found that those who are suffering hormone imbalance and possess excess unwanted hairs on face cannot suitably use the dermaplaning. In such case dermaplaning risks is much more than others.
You should always avoid this type of treatment when you suffer from acne or pigmentation as Dr. Anjali said. The doctor also said that the patients who are suffering from rocacea, eczema should also avoid dermaplaning.
It is always advisable to discuss with the doctor whether your skin reacts with the dermaplaning before taking treatment. Dermaplaning according to the most people is as like a shaving and nobody knows better than a specialist Dr. David Jack says. Dermaplaning can be singly or in combination may be used for the best result.
Generally derma planning can be taken after every 6 weeks which comprises the cleaning the face with antiseptic. Then a very light defoliant is applied along with a gentle shaving with a sterile surgical scalpel blade.
Finally apply a combination of serums and finish with high quality SPF which is very important. After the dermaplaning your skin needs some extra TLC in order to give skin care regime an overhaul.
“The deeper layer of skin is more exposed after the end of dermapalning which facilitates easy penetration of active ingredients” says Dr. Jack. More ant aging ingredients may flow to deeper skin. For better result vitamin C or E serum is used but the downside or side effect may arise to become the skin more sensitive.
Retinol as night cream may be used in such cases. The doctor also says “Usually the skin will be red and dry for one day or two – as result of side effects” there are other ways to attain luminosity of skin instead of dermaplaning.
“Good exfoliation can be achieved by the use of AHA (alpha hydroxyl acids), ratinoids and other products” says Dr. Anjali. It is very important to note that retinoid and AHA cannot be used combindly that may cause irritation so choose one at a time.
And whatever you choose doesn’t choose an defoliator containing beads or crystal as they can tear your skin. This method of dermaplaning removes outer layer of skin with dad skin cells and unwanted hair from your face. As a side effect you may feel scratching sensation which is uncomfortable but not painful.
The treated skin may appear as slightly pink or red color that will disappear in a day or two. Very aggressive treatment may cause mild flaking of the skin that will last for one week. All these temporary side effects are not so harmful. Finally we can say that the dermaplaning benefits in comparison to its bad effects are much more.
