Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It also eliminates that annoying ‘peach fuzz’ that cakes up in makeup and can be unflattering.
Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. It allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment.
