Dermaplaning is a skin treatment conducted on the face using an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair. The purpose of this therapy is to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment can also be effective in the removal of deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.
Dermaplaning is effective on any skin type and can be used to address:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- fine wrinkles
The end result is smooth skin that looks youthful and dewy. Dermatologists say this treatment is effective for people looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright, but results typically only last three weeks Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when it’s performed by a certified dermatologist.
This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient.
