What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a recently popular beauty trend that is, in short, a physical form of exfoliation. It involves using a surgical scalpel to shave the skin’s surface. This removes the top layer of dead skin and peach fuzz from the face. It may sound scary, but with a trained professional doing it, it’s nowhere near as scary as it sounds!
What are the benefits?
It will kick start the skin renewal process because it triggers cell regeneration and will allow nutrients to be better absorbed by your skin. Dermaplaning can also improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, dry skin, and wrinkles. It will give you a radiant glow and will make your skin appear smoother, softer, and fuzz-free.
Is it safe?
If you have normal skin, yes. However, if you have a hormonal imbalance, sensitive skin, or extremely oily skin with active acne, this procedure is not for you. It is also safe for pregnant and lactating women, unlike chemical peels.
What type of skin is dermaplaning best suited for?
Dermaplaning is best for dry skin, normal skin, and mature skin.
How much does it cost?
Dermaplaning usually ranges from $75-$150.
Should you try dermaplaning at home?
In order to protect you and your skin, no! It is a very precise procedure that requires a lot of technique and should only be done by a licensed esthetician.
