Exfoliation makes up a regular part of many of our beauty routines. Yet over the counter exfoliants are limited in just how good a job they can do. Dermaplaning is a safe, effective and deeper-penetrating way to get rid of dead facial skin.

If you’re after a smoother look and feel or want to diminish acne scarring, you might want to consider the benefits of dermaplaning treatments.

What Exactly Is Dermaplaning?

A dermaplaning treatment involves the use of a sterile surgical scalpel. The scalpel is run across your face using short, upward strokes. Don’t worry about the scalpel penetrating the skin, it’s held at a 45-degree angle.

So, what exactly can dermaplaning do for you?

The benefits may surprise you.

Anti-Aging Benefits

With a dermaplaning treatment, the top layer of dead skin is shaved off, reducing the effects of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. This leaves your face looking revitalized and refreshed, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Facial Hair Removal Benefits

Dermaplaning has a very similar effect to shaving facial fuzz. It’s more effective, though, due to the type of blade that is used. The scalpel is far sharper than one you’d buy in a store and having a professional take care of problem areas means you can look forward to great results.

Exfoliation Benefits

Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells from your face. It differs from microdermabrasion and several other exfoliation techniques in that treatment doesn’t require special chemicals. It’s also non-abrasive. This means dermaplaning is an excellent option for sensitive skin and it will leave your face looking flawless and smooth.

More Dermaplaning Benefits

While many people may consider dermaplaning treatments as a pain-free hair removal option, there are other benefits to be had, including:

  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Allows for your skin care products to penetrate your skin at a deeper level
  • Rids your face of fuzz that can trap oil and dirt
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines
  • Does not result in hyperpigmentation
  • Provides instant results
  • Is safe for all types of skin

With dermaplaning, the small hairs that are removed grow back without darkening or thickening, too.

With so many benefits, isn’t it time you tried dermaplaning for a smooth, soft face?
