At-Home Dermaplaning Explained By the Experts
As current events have prescribed that most of us keep us at home, more and more women are looking for ways to get their favorite beauty treatments outside the spa. Thankfully, dermaplaning, the popular treatment to exfoliate and remove peach fuzz from the face, is available from the comfort of your own bathroom. But how do you dermaplane at home? And, more importantly, is it safe? We've asked three experts to walk us through the ins and outs of at-home dermaplaning.
What is at-home dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning uses a small blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (otherwise known as peach fuzz) from the face, painlessly. The end results leave you with smooth, hairless skin that also allows your products to penetrate deeper.
"[After dermaplaning], you have this incredible baby bum skin. Your skin is so smooth that, for the first two days, you can’t stop touching your skin, because you’ll never feel anything softer than when you’ve just been 'planed. It’s truly incredible and you can't believe it," said Georgia Louise, a celebrity facialist. Under normal circumstances, Louise offers dermaplaning at her New York and West Hollywood ateliers.
