Dermaplaning is a facial treatment performed on the sides of your neck and under your chin. It’s fast and painless. Once the skin is cleansed and prepped, it’s held taut and a 10-gauge scalpel is held at a 45-degree angle to scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells.
It’s an excellent, yet gentle, form of exfoliation to help get rid of peach fuzz.
Hair and Skin Types That Benefit from Dermaplaning
Just about all types of skin can benefit from dermaplaning, which can help not only remove peach fuzz, but also reduce the appearance of acne scars, and leave your skin glowing and smooth.
If you have skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or just want to remove hair from your face, you’re likely a good candidate.
Dermaplaning is safe for most people, too, including those with sensitive skin, rosacea, and pregnant women.
Dermaplaning Isn’t Right for Everyone
However, this treatment might not be for everyone. If you have dark, thick facial hair or particularly oily and acne-prone skin, it’s better to avoid the procedure.
Overall, skin tones that are sensitive to hyperpigmentation are also not good candidates for dermaplaning.
That’s because acne-scarred or hyperpigmentation-prone skin may be left discolored and permanently blotchy after undergoing treatment.
If you are susceptible to fever blisters, rashes, and cold sores, dermaplaning can lead to an increase in flare-ups.
If you have acne, there’s the possibility of the blade nicking a pimple, and it could take longer to heal.
Fast Treatment, Fast Results
On the whole, dermaplaning is safe and effective for most types of skin and hair. If you’re on the hunt for softer, brighter, and glowing skin, it might just be the right solution for you.
Best of all, the results are immediate. There’s no downtime or waiting to look refreshed, making this a sought-after treatment before special events, or simply for those wanting finer, smoother skin.
