What is dermaplaning and why should you try it?

Dermaplaning is the act of shaving your face with a single blade that resembles a scalpel to help remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz while lightly exfoliating the skin's surface.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Taking off the top layer of dead skin cells helps skin care products absorb better. It also tricks the skin into thinking it’s wounded and boosts collagen production, helping decrease fine lines and wrinkles. It also prevents acne from forming. By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning prevents oils, dead skin and debris from being trapped inside the follicle.

Will dermaplaning cause breakouts?

Quite the opposite, actually. A buildup of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause pimples but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin. Exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow. If you already have an existing breakout, you’ll unfortunately need to sit this treatment out.

Dermaplaning will give you your most luminous, soft skin.

Dermaplaning is extremely gentle and pain-free.

If you’ve been thinking about trying out dermaplaning during your facials, I highly recommend it! Your skin will thank you!
