First things first — dermaplaning is one of the world’s most underrated beauty secrets. We can’t tell you how many women we’ve met who shied away from dermaplaning for years because they didn’t understand it or were afraid of “side effects.” But once these women tried it, they couldn’t believe how simple and yet how extraordinary dermaplaning truly is! Here’s the lowdown on dermaplaning, and why it delivers such impressive results.
Dermaplaning is a fancy word for “shaving.”
Shaving exfoliates the top layer of your skin, removing hair while also clearing away dull skin cells and fine peach fuzz — all that debris that muddles up your complexion. Most men shave—and therefore exfoliate—their facial skin every day of their lives, and have you ever noticed how most older men rarely develop lip lines, a classic sign of aging among women? We think daily exfoliation has something to do with it!
Dermaplaning creates the perfect “canvas.”
Here’s what dermaplaning does for you: Removes peach fuzz and dull skin cells, creating a smooth, even layer of skin which is the perfect foundation for makeup and skincare products. Your skin will look as smooth as ever, and people will ask you how you got such gorgeous skin. Only you need to know that all you did was dermaplaning!
No, your hair will NOT grow back thicker and darker.
We need to dispel this nasty myth once and for all, that dermaplaning, or shaving, will make the hair on your face grow in thicker and darker. Your hair follicles do not work this way. It’s a matter of science, and our medical director, Dr. Jeff Alexander, is the board-certified dermatologist who started Skin Care Institute, the first medspa in Oklahoma, almost 20 years ago. Dr. Alexander knows skin, and he and his staff would never steer you wrong.
