Dermaplaning is a skin rejuvenation treatment that has been around for decades. It involves the use of a small sterile exfoliating blade to remove both dead skin cells and hair from the surface of the face. This makes it an excellent alternative to chemical exfoliation treatments, such as facial scrubs, and rejuvenation and laser peels, which may not be suitable for all skin types. Dermaplaning is also a great option for people with sensitive skin, as it is low-irritating and can be used by pregnant women.
However, it is important to note that the best results come after a series of treatments. Some doctors even use dermaplaning as a precursor to other in-office treatments, such as medical or chemical facial peels, as it helps improve the penetrability of any subsequent procedure. Compared to other hair removal treatments such as waxing and tweezers, dermaplaning can be a little more expensive. And unlike waxing, dermaplaning doesn't completely remove hair from your follicle, so hair may regrow a little earlier than other methods.
Those considering dermaplaning should find an alternative if they have a history of cystic acne or if they are currently dealing with a related dermatological condition. On the other hand, microneedles create more dramatic changes to your skin but tend to be more expensive than dermaplaning and you would have a few days of redness after each session.
