What is Dermaplaning? 👇🏻
Dermaplaning is a form of mechanical exfoliation of the skin, whereby a sterile surgical blade is used to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells of the stratum corneum and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) to produce smoother, brighter skin.
Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin leaving it smooth, supple and vibrant. It enhances the penetration of active ingredients of skin care products and creates a smooth canvas for makeup application for a smoother, more radiant look. It is a very safe procedure and even suitable for those with sensitive skin. It is great before a special event and very popular with our brides before their special day.
Dermaplaning uses a straight rigid blade as opposed to a flexible blade which is what a “shaving” blade or razor is. A rigid blade not only removes vellus hair or peach fuzz, it is designed to remove several weeks of dead surface skin cells as well. You should not try to dermaplane your own face because the blade needs to be held at a 45 degree angle and the skin must be held taught. It is very easy to knick your skin or cause skin irritation if this technique is not performed properly.
