Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years and has recently became popular as a celebrity must have treatment.
Skin care professionals must make sure dermaplaning is within their scope of practice before doing the procedure.When clients hear the word dermaplaning, they quickly associate the term with the procedure known as dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a different procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis using a whisk like device. There can be complications associated with dermabrasion, including infections and scarring, which is why it is not commonly used anymore. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is a simple physical exfoliation of the epidermis.
