Why You Should Dermaplane and Never Shave Your Face

Jul 13, 2020 | Skin Care


Beauty experts and influencers have raved about it for years as one of the best ways to achieve a smoother complexion. However, taking a razor to your own face to remove vellus hair, aka “peach fuzz” is not such a great idea because you risk razor burn, nicks, ingrown hairs, and infection. Instead, Dermaplane, which is performed by a licensed aesthetician, is a much better way to remove unwanted facial hair than shaving, and here’s why.

Dermaplane is Different from Shaving

Dermaplaning is different from shaving because it removes more than hair and is completely safe when done by a professional. After cleansing your skin, our trained aesthetician uses a small, rounded blade to gently scrape away facial hair and dead skin to reveal the smooth, fresh skin hidden just below the surface.

A Dermaplane facial can do things that shaving can’t, like:

  • Softening rough skin to leave your face looking and feeling smooth
  • Improving superficial hyperpigmentation
  • Softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving the appearance of mild scars
  • Brighten your skin tone

Deep Exfoliate with Dermaplane

Dermaplaning can be used as a standalone treatment to remove facial hair and freshen up your complexion. But it also can be used as a deep exfoliation treatment if you cannot use peeling agents. This exfoliation will allow nourishing products like serums to penetrate your skin better. You can also combine this treatment with a chemical peel or microdermabrasion facial.

A Dermaplaning treatment takes just an hour and immediately gives you smoother and fresher looking skin. To see if this treatment is right for you, contact North Scottsdale Laser & Skincare Clinic to schedule your complimentary consultation.
