Did you know that dermaplaning is a non-invasive way to improve hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, or treat deep acne scars? By exfoliating the epidermis, the top layer of skin, using a scalpel or dermatome, the vellus hairs or “peach fuzz” along with any dirt is carefully removed. Along with the top layer of skin, the fine vellus hairs that add a layer of protection to our skin, but some people have thicker, darker hair that makes it difficult to keep their skin clean. 

Aestheticians use this method to scrape off the dead layers of skin to reveal a smoother, brighter surface. The difference between shaving and dermaplaning is that shaving doesn’t remove any layers of skin, only hair. Skin might become a little sensitive and show redness after the session, but the majority of people don’t experience any irritation. Just be sure to avoid tanning/direct sunlight and not to exfoliate your skin at least 3 days before a treatment for best results. 

Since dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation, it can be combined with other facial treatments. Though there are tools available for at-home use, it is safer to see a professional who is trained in performing the treatment.
