What is Dermaplaning?

Are you self-conscious about the peach fuzz on your face and have resorted to shaving it? Shaving and waxing your face on a regular basis can be extremely damaging to your skin but thanks to a new skincare trend, dermaplaning, removing vellus hair, dry skin cells, and achieving healthy looking skin is easier than ever before.


What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the process of using a 10-gauge scalpel and gently scraping away the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus skin (peach fuzz) off the surface of the skin. This method of exfoliation leaves the skin extremely smooth and reduces makeup from caking on the skin. When your aesthetician preforms dermaplaning on your skin, they will hold the swipe the sterile blade in upward motions while holding the skin taunt.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

The process of dermaplaning exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells and hair, allowing products to better penetrate the skin and trigger the cell regeneration process. The process will also eliminate the opportunity for dirt and oil to accumulate in the vellus hair since it is removed along with the top layer of skin. This will leave your face feeling and looking healthy, brighter, and smooth.

Who is it for?

Since dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin cells and hair, the process is well suited for all skin types, especially those with dry skin or those wanting to get rid of peach fuzz. If you have acne-prone skin this procedure isn’t suggested, although if you still want to try it, we suggest waiting until a breakout subsides.
