There are plenty of existing procedures that have become “buzzwords” in the beauty industry. While some are raving about innovative treatments such as injectable fillers and microneedling, dermaplaning is on the top of everyone’s mind.

Dermaplaning is an Advanced Exfoliation Procedure

Before you can come to understand exactly why everyone is talking about dermaplaning, you must first understand what the procedure is and what it entails.

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure performed on the face. As with any highly technical cosmetic procedure, dermaplaning should only be carried out by an experienced, board-certified surgeon.

Your surgeon will use a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape the skin. This serves to eliminate the outermost layer of dead skin cells – also known as peach fuzz. Once this “peach fuzz” is scraped away, the glowing complexion underneath is revealed, leaving the surface of the skin smooth, soft, and supple.

Dermaplaning is Painless and Requires Little Healing Time

While dermaplaning may sound intimidating, the procedure is beloved by countless models, actresses, and beauty industry professionals for a variety of reasons. One of the most impressive factors regarding dermaplaning is that the procedure is entirely painless.

Additionally, the procedure requires little (if any) downtime when it comes to recovery. While the treatment area may feel red and dry for a few hours following the procedure, the aftermath is bound to be worth it.

Dermaplaning Ensures You Get the Most out of Your Products

Beauty products are not typically cheap. If you’re in the good habit of using moisturizers and other skin-healing products on a daily basis, you want to make sure you are getting the most out of your dollar.

Dermaplaning does not only give your skin a bright and soft glow, but the physical exfoliation procedure triggers your body’s natural cell regeneration process. When these cells regenerate, they are more susceptible to allowing products to penetrate and heal the skin. This means that your favorite products are likely to work better and faster following the dermaplaning procedure.
