Have you ever heard of dermaplaning? It can be tricky to understand the true concept of this when you see tools everywhere that claim to promise you professional results. According to skininc.com, “Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).” This treatment will make your skin appear brighter and smoother after each treatment.
Look, I’m sure the idea of having the tool against your face is terrifying. Trust me, the idea worried me too. A lot of my friends show videos of their clients getting it done and the results continue to amaze me. You may see products in the market that claim to provide the same results as you would as a professional dermaplaning treatment. Unfortunately, the results are not the same. You are at risk of scratching or creating microtears into your skin if anything. Plus, it is difficult to properly disinfect a razor blade.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning tools you see in stores are more like razors and do not provide the same results as professional dermaplaning. Healthline.com states, “ Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face.” A new blade is used for each treatment to avoid the spread of bacteria and contamination. Count me in!

Benefits of dermaplaning treatments
As we age, cell turnover rate decreases, which means exfoliating 1-3 times a week becomes crucial to help shed dead skin cells. Another benefit of dermaplaning is that “vellus hair” (peach fuzz) can sometimes cause your makeup not to blend properly. You will notice your skincare products penetrate into the skin more effectively after doing this professional treatment.
Safe for pregnant women
This treatment can be a great option for women who are pregnant looking for safe skincare treatments. Dermaplaning can also be a gentler alternative to waxing. Oftentimes, waxing or threading can irritate your skin and cause acne breakouts.
**Disclaimer: Please consult with your esthetician or dermatologist before considering dermaplaning treatment if you have sensitive skin or are pregnant. This treatment may cause irritation to acne-prone skin, those with rosacea, or sensitive skin.
