What is Dermaplaning? Like microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning is a form of physical exfoliation. This method utilizes a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the dulling top layer of dead skin, revealing smooth and glowing skin beneath.
Dermaplaning exfoliation is favorable in the entertainment industry not only for its instant, radiant results, but for its seamless elimination of facial ‘peach fuzz’ that interferes with makeup application (which, not to mention, is made very visible in rough production lighting / high-definition cameras). With the removal of fine hairs, dermaplaning finesses a larger skin surface area, allowing for greater penetration of skincare products. (It is no surprise why dermatologists utilize dermaplaning before starting procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels).
Dermaplaning is great for all skin types except for acne skin — those who have deep cystic acne, it is recommended that waiting until breakouts clear before trying dermaplaning.
Though microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are both forms of physical exfoliation, both methods bear their differences.
Microdermabrasion is about sanding and suctioning dead skin cells, helping uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning scrapes off the upmost layer of the skin safely, rendering it better suited for those with dryer skin types and anyone seeking to get rid of peach fuzz.
