Are you looking to achieve skin that is silkier and healthier than ever? Dermaplaning is one of those amazing beauty secrets that most people don’t know about that does just that. It’s a simple mechanical exfoliation procedure that removes not just oils, dead skin, and environmental toxins—it removes the thin hairs on your skin, called vellus hairs or peach fuzz. This not only makes your skin healthy and silky-smooth, it can make it easier to apply your makeup.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a procedure that offers many benefits, including:

  • Good exfoliation
  • Chemical-free
  • Removal of fine hairs
  • Adds a youthful glow to skin
  • Makes skin more receptive to nutrients in facials

As a result of these benefits, women who have tried dermaplaning love it. A uniform, chemical free exfoliation that gives good, even results, this is an excellent procedure for women with sensitive skin or those who are trying to avoid chemical exposure because or pregnancy or other concerns.

The removal of fine hairs is also a benefit for many women. Although these hairs are almost invisible, they can be felt, and they can make it hard to apply makeup evenly. Dermaplaning makes your skin feel smoother and removes these interfering hairs.

What Is Dermaplaning

In dermaplaning, which shouldn’t be confused with dermabrasion or microdermabrasion, we use a blade to scrape away dirt, surface layers of skin, and the thin hairs that grow on the face. Using a deft touch and a blade that isn’t as sharp as one used for shaving, the result is a precise exfoliation that exposes the younger layers of skin and removes environmental toxins, with the result that your skin looks fresher and brighter.

Dermaplaning can be combined with other skin treatments, such as facials, to improve the results. Dermaplaning removes the dead skin that can make it hard for your body to absorb the nutrients in a facial, improving the effectiveness.

Why Isn’t Dermaplaning More Popular?

Dermaplaning isn’t among the most popular cosmetic treatments, mostly because of the old wives’ tale that shaving will cause your hair to grow back thicker. Believe us, there are many men who wish this were true—after decades of shaving they still can’t grow more than a scraggly beard—but it’s not.

But as a result of this fear, many women steer clear of this procedure, which is why it isn’t more popular. But women in the know—such as Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe–have always used it. It’s even said that Cleopatra was a user of this technique, and it’s quite likely. The Egyptians were fastidious about hair removal, and in Greek culture, including Egypt at the time of Cleopatra, women and men often bathed by rubbing their skin with oil and sand and rubbing it off with a dull blade called a strigil, creating an effect similar to dermaplaning.
