Is Dermaplaning the Same as Face-Shaving?

Raise your hand if you have heard this at least once in your life: shaving makes hair grow back thicker and darker. You have, right? It’s why most people prefer other hair removal methods, such as waxing or laser.

Men take a razor to their face every day, but most women would never dream of it. Shaving your face is viewed as a taboo, but there are plenty of benefits to be gained from having smooth skin. Don’t get us wrong. We’re not urging you to buy a pack of razors and start shaving every day. We’re encouraging you to try a dermaplane facial. 

What’s the Difference?

A dermaplane facial is often referred to as “face-shaving” because it involves scraping the skin with a thin blade. However, whereas shaving is meant solely for removing hair from the surface of the skin, a dermaplane facial is meant to do much more than that. Of course it removes peach fuzz and face hairs, but what it’s actually designed for is exfoliation. As the medical-grade blade glides over the skin, it picks up and removes dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria that build up after a long day. 

Dermaplaning is much more effective than your over-the-counter exfoliation tools and has longer-lasting results as well. The professional tools used by cosmetic enhancement experts penetrate further into the skin, whereas store-bought products work only on the surface. As a result, the skin becomes 100 times smoother after a dermaplane treatment. You’ll instantly see the reduction of pores and acne scars, making the surface of your skin perfect for flawless makeup application. 

Can I Do It at Home?

Yes and no. There’s nothing stopping people from purchasing dermaplaning tools to use at home, but they’ll never be able to replicate the professional results they get at a medical spa. 

Your aesthetic technician is highly-trained in the proper use of cosmetic tools. They prioritize your safety above all else, while ensuring they’re performing each treatment correctly for the best results. Unless you’re a certified aesthetic practitioner yourself, you probably don’t know how to best perform the procedure. Plus, you’re more likely to hurt or cut your skin in the process.
