Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that involves gently scraping the top layer of skin on the face (stratum corneum) using a medical-grade scalpel (by a trained licensed esthetician) or a high-quality home-use blade.
There are pros and cons to this process but first, let's review important dermaplaning instructions. The key is to begin with clean skin using a clean, sharp blade held at a 45-degree angle while skin is held taut. Short scraps, removing debris from the blade as the face is treated. To avoid injury skin must always be held taut.
The process removes both dead skin cells and the fine vellus hairs known as peach fuzz, leaving the surface of the face ultra smooth.
Dermaplaning stimulates the development of new skin cells revealing new skin on the surface. It leaves skin in a healthier condition but without any harsh chemicals, excessive downtime, or pain. There may be a slight redness that goes away quickly.
The bottom line is that dermaplaning is an excellent treatment, provided it is done properly, with care, and the skin is properly cared for following the treatment using quality skincare products.
