So, What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a medical-grade surgical blade in short strokes at a 45 degree angle to remove the surface layer of dead skin, debris and hair. A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built up dead skin cells and debris from your skin. Since the blade is being held at a precise angle and the experienced technician uses light, feathering strokes, there is no worry about piercing or scratching the skin. Dermaplaning is completely pain free and non-invasive.
The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin. There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker- dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that grows back the same size and color. In addition, the way the surgical blade cuts the hair does not create the illusion of a thicker hair.
