I have been asked on several occasions if there is a difference between professional dermaplaning and at home face shaving tools. In short, the answer is YES!
When receiving dermaplaning by a professional a surgical scalpel is used to exfoliate the top layer of your skin. Although the primary goal of dermaplaning is to give your skin a deep exfoliation, the removal of peach fuzz (vellus hair) is a nice bonus!
Here are some of the benefits of dermaplaning:
- Softens rough, dry skin
- Your skin will look and feel better
- Brightens and evens your skin tone
- Your skin care products will be able to penetrate deeper
The at home face razors are an option if you only want to remove facial hair. The blade is not designed to allow the deep exfoliation that a professional scalpel does.
Whether you’re looking for a nice and relaxing treatment or you have a special occasion coming up, dermaplaning is a great non-invasive option to get a hydrated glow!
