What is Dermaplaning?

Shaving the face is no longer taboo for women. In fact, what used to be considered a part of only men's personal hygiene is now part of women's beauty routines! Don’t worry, shaving away peach fuzz with your favorite drugstore razor isn’t what we’re referring to—rather a cosmetic procedure called dermaplaning

How Does Dermaplane Work?

You’ve heard that dermaplaning makes the skin better, but how? What is dermaplaning, exactly? This procedure consists of lightly scraping the face with a surgical scalpel, which is similar to the shaving you’re used to—but far more comfortable! During the 30-minute process, the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz, or fine vellus hairs, is removed.

Reveal a Smooth and Clean Complexion

Since dermaplaning removes dead skin cells and encourages new cell growth, the result is a more even skin tone! The procedure also cleanses the skin because the fine vellus hairs that collect dirt and oil are removed. The complexion resulting from dermaplane tends to absorb moisturizers better, creating a smoother surface for applying makeup. Anders Dermatology’s aestheticians recommend scheduling a dermaplane every six weeks for optimum results

Dermaplane Is a Low-Maintenance Treatment

For the longest time, women have been afraid to shave their face because they believed it would grow back thicker and darker. This is just a myth! Fine vellus hairs grow back at a steady rate, appearing the same way they did before your procedure.

Women have also avoided shaving their face, or at least avoided being open about it, for fear of judgement. However, this is no longer the case! Even those who aren’t open about “shaving their face” are doing it—and why wouldn’t you? Dermaplaning is an effective way to reveal clear, soft and clean skin.
