Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that involves gently scraping off the top layer of skin with a surgical scalpel, to remove the dead skin, debris and fine hairs or “peach fuzz”. This reveals the younger, smoother skin beneath, and eliminates dullness, minimizes lines, wrinkles and discolorations, and helps prevent acne breakouts. In addition to revealing fresh, smooth, baby-soft, glowing skin, dermaplaning also enables skincare products to better penetrate the skin when applied, making them more effective.
Many professional fashion models swear by dermaplaning as their go-to treatment, since it helps give the skin a smooth and flawless palette for foundation and make-up application, without harsh peeling and exfoliation treatments that leave skin red.
Dermaplaning, however, is not typically recommended for patients with sensitive skin issues such as rosacea or keratosis pilaris. And while it can prevent breakouts, dermaplaning should not be used during active acne flare-ups.
