Dermaplaning is a manual form of exfoliation where a 10-gague scalpel is used to scrape off the layers of dead skin cells and also removes peach fuzz and facial hair. It needs to be done by a professional, but takes only a few minutes and doesn’t hurt at all.
Although it sounds scary, the process is totally safe and can be done every three to four weeks.
Here are 3 reasons you should give dermaplaning a try; it doesn’t hurt (feels like a cat licking your face) and it’s totally worth it.
1. It softens fine lines and wrinkles.
Not only does this method leave your skin feeling silky a smooth, but it boosts your skin’s cell turnover rate, thus increasing the plumpness of your skin. Dermaplaning will also help even out the texture of your skin and some discolorations will lighten.
2. It allows skin care products to penetrate better and work more efficiently.
When you have dead skin built up, your skin care products will just sit on the surface and not do their job. After dead skin cells are removed via dermaplaning, your products can absorb into your skin and penetrate deeper.
3. It helps makeup go on more smoothly.
Dermaplaning provides a completely clean palate, which will help your makeup go on more smoothly, flawlessly, and remain on your skin longer.
Dermaplaning is a service that can be performed on almost any skin type and is safe for pregnant and lactating women. It is a pain free service and provides instant results.
