Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face. It is recommended for all skin types, except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment. Wondering if you should try dermaplaning or microdermabrasion ? They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz.
