Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands. Dermaplaning requires handling a very sharp blade that’s used in surgeries. It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth.
Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, dermaplaning is often used to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
dermaplaning versus microdermabrasion? They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. Both methods are good for almost everyone, and the choice is a matter of personal preference.
