What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a dermatological treatment for facial exfoliation that is sometimes confused with microdermabrasion. While both processes involve removing dead skin cells from the first layer of skin, dermaplaning also removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and does not abrade the skin. It is a known, safe procedure for facial rejuvenation and has been used to renew facial skin and maintain that youthful, healthy glow throughout history.
How Does Dermaplaning Rejuvenate the Skin?*
By removing dull, dry or damaged skin cells, dermaplaning reveals fresh layers of healthy skin that have not been damaged by daily exposure to the sun and other elements. Dermaplaning also works to remove facial hair that may or may not be noticeable. In addition to being visible, this unwanted vellus hair can also accumulate dirt, oil, or dander and create opportunities for bacteria to gather at the follicle. By removing the unwanted hair, the skin is made to look and feel younger, healthier, brighter and smoother.
