Looking for a safe, non-invasive way to get a glowy, youthful-looking skin? Your prayers have been answered because we have a simple cosmetic treatment that can help you with that: dermaplaning.

In short, an esthetician will take a small scalpel (very gently) to help reduce acne scars, remove unwanted hair, brighten your complexion, and more.

Sounds painful, right? Well, you’ll be surprised to learn that dermaplaning doesn’t hurt at all. So, today, we will go over everything related to this treatment: procedure, benefits, cost, and more.

With dermaplaning, you can achieve a lot of results, such as help reduce fine lines and acne scars, remove unwanted hair, and improve damaged skin.

As stated before, the professional will use a special instrument with a small blade to remove hair and skin cells. Resulting in an immediate improvement to allow makeup to glide on easily so less is needed.

What to Expect After Dermaplaning

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
