Can’t hide that hair in summer

Your smile is radiant, your flip-flops are at the ready. It’s summer, and you’re good to go—except for one small problem. Actually, a few hundred of them: vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz.” It’s on your cheeks, your jaw, maybe your neck. Don’t shave it, use the secret summer cure for that unwanted fuzz: dermablading in Minneapolis. 

Those fine hairs many women have on our faces practically glow in the sun. They’re a nuisance that catches our makeup in clumps and lumps, driving us insane when we’re prepping our look for that “perfect night” under the stars.

That’s exactly where dermablading near you saves the day, and the night.

What is dermablading in Minneapolis?

At Vively Body Science, dermablading (also referred to as dermaplaning) is a treatment which exfoliates your facial skin and helps remove dirt, oil, and vellus hair. It’s done by hand, by a trained Vively team member, using a medical-grade scalpel.

We scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and excess oils, removing up to 2 weeks of dead skin. 

As a nice bonus, dermablading can smooth uneven skin, giving you a smoother base for your foundation and makeup, and extra glow for your summer fun. The effects of dermablading usually last about 3 to 4 weeks.

The process for dermablading near you at Vively Body Science

As with any medspa procedure, you should talk to a qualified aesthetician about your goals, and your concerns. You must be open and honest about any pre-existing conditions, and about worries you might have concerning the procedure itself and after-treatment care.

  • Step 1: Consultation/Determine Your Treatment. Based on the initial consultation, you’ll receive a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
  • Step 2: Procedure. Dermablading in Minneapolis is a painless procedure we can combine with other procedures or perform as a quick stand-alone treatment.
  • Step 3: After-Care. You’ll want to avoid direct sunlight for prolonged periods for several weeks and practice good sun protection.

How to prep for dermablading

Dermablading isn’t the same as shaving

When you walk down an aisle in the department store, marveling at the different kinds of razor blades available to you, you might wonder—isn’t this just dermablading at home? They’re both sharp blades…aren’t they?

The big difference is that dermablading should be performed by a licensed professional. You’ll get a more thorough exfoliation, and you’ll benefit from extra advantages that come with professional dermablading near you. We’ll talk about those advantages shortly.

Shaving your face at home might seem fiscally advantageous, but that DIY tactic only tackles the vellus hair. Plus, you run the risk of inflicting scarring damage to your skin if you slip.

We never recommend at-home dermablading because of the risk of scarring, infection, and safety risk. At minimum, you’ll need a fresh, new dermaplane razor that’s specifically designed for your face (those budget-priced leg-shaving razors won’t do). Then, a rock-steady hand, and medical-grade skincare products from Vively for after-care. 

However, if you want to get all the best benefits that professional dermablading near you can deliver, here’s how it works.

The process for dermablading in Minneapolis

Your treatment will follow these simple steps:

  1. A soothing, relaxing facial cleanse, to remove any oils, dirt, or bacteria. Think of it as a face massage that leaves your skin clean and refreshed.
  2. Application of a toner to prep the dermablading target areas for removal of the top layer of dead skin.
  3. The dermablading process. Your provider will gently swipe the scalpel across the skin, at a 45 degree angle, to remove that top layer and the hair that comes with it. This form of exfoliation is done by hand.

Dermablading should be done with great care, and zero pain, for a smoothness you can’t replicate at home.

Benefits beyond the hair

Dermablading near you provides a surprising number of benefits beyond hair removal. Some of its benefits include:

Improves hyperpigmentation

Dermablading removes that top layer of the hyperpigmentation, revealing new, healthy skin cells from beneath.Increasing skin cell turnover improves hyperpigmentation from sun damage, melasma, and other forms of this condition.

Brightens the skin immediately

You’ll already look fresher and more rejuvenated after a single treatment.

Helps skin care products penetrate better

Your products don’t get caught in the hairs, or get blocked by dry, flaky, dead skin, making the active ingredients in your skincare more potent.

Gives your skin a more even tone 

With routine dermablading treatments, your skin can exhibit less textures and have a more even tone, reducing the need for makeup to even out your complexion.

Stimulates collagen production

Collagen is your skin’s foundation. Less collagen means more wrinkles. When dermablading in Minneapolis stimulates your body to produce more collagen, the treated area becomes plumper and fuller. 

This reduces acne scarring and helps minimize fine lines. 

Lowers bacterial infections

Removing vellus hair/peach fuzz and dead skin cells helps stop dirt and oils from becoming trapped in the skin, one of the big causes of bacterial infections, acne, and those dreaded “blackheads.”

Other benefits of dermablading near you

  • Primes skin for chemical peel or laser treatment
  • Heals ingrown hairs
  • Increases blood circulation for that healthy glow
  • Makes the skin look and feel smoother
  • Unclogs pores
  • No down time 

Where does dermablading leave your makeup?

Practically perfect, that’s where.

With all you do to look your best, it’s so frustrating when your makeup won’t cooperate. Blame it on the peach fuzz, and the dry skin. Your makeup can cling to that vellus hair, making your skin appear uneven, patchy, and textured. Dry skin also affects your makeup application, making you use more product to get that beautiful, just-what-you-wanted evenness in color contour and consistency. 

After dermablading, your makeup will sit directly on less textured, plumper skin, with no “fuzz” in the way. No more powder clumps, no more base lumps; your efforts will lay flatter for smoother summer style and the dazzling look you crave. Are you a candidate?

How often should I have dermablading in Minneapolis?

You should only have dermablading done approximately every 4 – 6 weeks for best results. Your body needs time to regenerate skin cells, the process that leaves your face looking more radiant. If you do it too frequently, your skin may get irritated, leaving your skin redder, dryer, and more prone to environmental damage.

What to do after dermablading

There’s not a “recovery period” after dermablading. But, as with any treatment, you should support your goals by helping your body help itself. Some suggestions:

  • Avoid direct sun on your face for up to 3 days (time to break out that summer hat!)
  • Avoid extreme heat for the same amount of time
  • For about a week, don’t use exfoliators/scrubs on your face
  • Also avoid chlorine for a week (even if the pool looks amazing)
  • Apply Vively-recommended moisturizers, creams, and/or serums
  • When you head out for the summer day, use sunscreen

Isn’t dermablading/dermaplaning just shaving?

No. Dermablading uses a surgical blade, not a shaver, and exfoliates first. It’s the exfoliation process that also removes the vellus hair safely and effectively.

Why do dermablading in Minneapolis?

Added benefits of vellus hair removal, plumper skin, reduced scarring and fine wrinkles, it’s so much more than “a shave.”

Will my hair come back darker and thicker?

Dermablading is only done on the face, where vellus hair acts differently than on the rest of your body. It won’t come back thicker and darker.

Can I do dermablading if I have acne?

We do not recommend dermablading if your acne is having an active outbreak, due to the risk of spreading bacteria. However, it does work well with post-outbreak skin, especially to remediate acne scarring.

Is there a skin tone that won’t work for dermablading?

Dermablading/dermaplaning works for all skin tones.

How long does dermablading near me take? 

About 30 or so minutes per treatment.

Is there any recovery time? 

No. After your dermablading procedure you can return to your normal routine. We do encourage all patients to wear sunscreen after any exfoliating service, and there are other precautions listed above.

What does dermablading feel like? 

Many clients liken it to a gentle “cat’s tongue” sensation. We can’t stress enough that there should not be pain. If you have extra-sensitive skin, tell your Vively team member. They’ll be sure to adapt your treatment for maximum comfort.
