What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It’s really quite simple, and is often described to be like shaving any other part of the body. Instead of using a regular razor that you would use to shave your legs, dermaplaning requires the use of a medical grade scalpel that is used to gently remove both dead skin cells and unwanted hair from your face.

It may sound a bit scary, but there is nothing to fear with dermaplaning so long as you have an experienced aesthetician that is performing the procedure.

Who Are the Best Candidates for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an excellent choice for anyone looking to remove old layers of skin from their face. However, it is typically not advised for those with acne-prone skin or deep, cystic acne since it can be difficult for the aesthetician to navigate around an uneven surface with their scalpel.

Dermaplaning is also an excellent option for those looking to forego any sort of chemical treatment on their skin. Women who are pregnant or nursing often find dermaplaning to be an excellent alternative to chemical facial treatments, since some of these chemicals can be absorbed by the body and transferred to the child. Others simply do not like the thought of putting such strong chemical on their skin, and so they opt for dermaplaning out of personal preference.
