Dermaplaning pros and cons:
an easy guide

Dermaplaning in progress.

There are numerous beauty treatments on the market that claim to help you achieve smooth, radiant skin. It’s inevitable that you’ll have to do a bit of research in order to figure out which treatments are most effective for your skin type and specific skincare goals while also falling within your budget. In this blog post, we’re focusing on a procedure that’s gained popularity in the last few years: let’s explore the pros and cons of dermaplaning.

But, first of all, what is dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique that involves using a sterile blade to gently remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) from the face. While dermaplaning at home is possible with a special dermaplaning tool, for best results and lowest risk of side effects, we recommend always getting the procedure done by a professional spa practitioner.

While we’re going to explore both the pros and cons of dermaplaning, we’ll go over the advantages of the procedure first. Good news for anyone excited about the prospect of this two-in-one exfoliation and hair removal treatment: there are plenty of them!

Final thoughts

If your goal is to enjoy a brighter, more even complexion for several weeks and you don’t have active acne or sunburn, it’s very likely that the dermaplaning benefits outweigh the cons of this treatment. As always, you should turn to a medical professional to perform cosmetic treatments in order to reduce your risk of infection, irritation, and other possible side effects.
