Similar to Microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning works to remove your dead skin cells, facial hair and peach fuzz (vellus hairs)Â – whilst also brightening the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
However, the comparison between the two exfoliating treatments is that the Microdermabrasion uses a slight suction technique to help unclog pores.
Due to its nature, dermaplaning has gained popularity with models and actresses as it creates an even base for makeup and skincare applications – with the products blending flawlessly into the skin.
We must also note that the removal of vellus hair does not upset the hair cycle, the root or type of hair. Therefore, vellus hair will grow back normally.
How does it work?
As an effective exfoliator for the skin, during the procedure we will use a surgical scalpel to remove the dead skin cells from the Stratum Corneum (which is made up of cells at the end of their natural regeneration cycle). Without removal, these dead skin cells can often leave your skin looking dull, discoloured and not smooth to the touch.
