What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells and hair from the face.
Dermaplaning aims to make the skin’s surface smoother, more youthful, and radiant. This treatment helps to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven marks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” which is the short, soft hairs on the face.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- fine wrinkles
How it Works
The tools used for dermaplaning look a little bit like the type of razor that you would use on your everyday body hair.
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving: By aiming a sterile blade at a proper angle and dragging it across the skin, dead cells are removed, along with scar tissue, and other debris that may be making a skin’s surface look uneven.
Skin is constantly exposed to environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of the skin to appear dull, and it can make it look aged. Dermaplaning clears away damaged skin cells so that newer cells are seen instead.
