Dermaplaning has been around for many years, however, it has become extremely popular in the last few years. Dermaplaning is the act of removing the fuzz (known as vellus) off of your face. Many people say that Dermaplaning is the secret behind beautiful and glowing skin while others say that it causes hair on the face to grow back thicker and darker. You can’t believe everything you read on the internet because Dermaplaning certainly does not cause hair to grow back thicker and darker. Here is everything you need to know about Dermaplaning so you can decide if it’s right for you!
What is Dermaplaning?
As mentioned above, Dermaplaning removes unwanted hair or “peach fuzz” from your skin. It uses a sharp dermaplaning tool that gently removes fine hairs on your face. Dermaplaning tools can be used on your forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck. When getting a Dermaplaning procedure, your esthetician will use the sharp scalpal to very gently scrape your skin with light, feathering strokes to remove any hair present as well as scrape away any build-up of dead skin cells. While it might sound scary to have a sharp tool scratching at your face, this procedure is completely painless. You may experience some redness and irritation on your skin when the procedure is over, however, most people don’t experience any side effects at all.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning provides many benefits to your skin besides just removing unwanted hair. Dermaplaning acts as an exfoliant and removes dead skin cells, dirt, and oil that may be clogging your pores. This will lead to fewer breakouts as well as your skin products working more effectively. The barrier on your skin will be removed so that your products will seep right into your skin and be able to better do their job.
The hair on your skin is a big reason why dirt and oil get easily trapped on your face. By removing the hair, it is less likely that dirt and oil will cling to your face. Your skin will be left clean, clear, and ready to prevent future breakouts. Dermaplaning also has anti-aging effects since the removal of dead skin cells will reduce your face’s fine lines, scars, and discoloration.
Dermaplaning VS Shaving
You’re probably thinking, why can’t I just shave my face at home? While you certainly can, shaving your face at home won’t give you all the same benefits that Dermaplaning would give you. As mentioned above, Dermaplaning will remove dead skin cells, clean out dirt and oil, and help prevent future breakouts. At-home razors are not able to achieve the level of depth that is needed to remove dead skin cells.
