What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an effective and safe exfoliation procedure. It uses a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin to remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. The tool is held at a 45 degree angle and is brushed along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells. The procedure is only performed on the face and is not used for shaping the eyebrows, since the hair is much thicker. It is generally a stand alone procedure, but it does create deeper product penetration boosting the products effects. The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne scars.

How Often is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks. It is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle, which is thirty days, before going back and having the treatment done. The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area.
People who suffer from acne or cystic acne should not have dermaplaning performed.
5 Myths About Dermaplaning That Are Totally Untrue
Dermaplaning Will Cause Your Hair To Grow Back Darker - Your hair will grow back exactly the same color and thickness as it was previously. You can’t change the structure of your hair follicle by simply shaving your hair off.
Dermaplaning Will Cause Your Hair To Grow Back Thicker - Once the hair has fully grown back in, it will look and feel exactly the same as before.
Dermaplaning Will Cause Breakouts - Not only will dermaplaning not cause breakouts, it will actually prevent them from happening.
You Can Use A Regular Razor To Dermaplane - While you can use a regular razor to shave your face, you will not get the same results as you would if you used a proper dermaplaning tool, which uses a sharp, single blade.
Dermaplaning Is Super Painful - Dermaplaning is totally pain free. In fact, it’s way less painful than waxing, lasering, or threading.
