What is Dermaplaning
To put it in simple terms, dermaplaning is super exfoliation for your skin with removal of hair at the centre of it. The procedure gently removes the peach fuzz and dead skin cells from the top layer of your face with the help of a small, sharp blade.
So many benefits with one simple, painless, and quick procedure is what makes it extremely popular. As soon as you’re done with the procedure, it can make your skin feel super smooth and radiant. Besides Hair Removal, the biggest upside of this procedure is that it helps with better absorption of products in the skin.
One thing you need to remember is that dermaplaning is something that you’d need to keep doing over and over again to maintain that smooth skin look all the time.

Is It Expensive?

Additionally, for better results, some clines will advise you to get an add-on for chemical peel so that your skin can absorb the benefits of it. This chemical peel will be charged as well.
Apart from being quick, convenient, and pain-free, there’s no downtime after the procedure as well.
But, How does it work?
The procedure is similar to shaving. The tool looks like a straight razor but Bombae’s GlamUp Beauty Razor also do the trick well.
It works by slowly gliding down that sharp blade across your skin. This removes the dead skin cells, acne scar tissues, and other debris on the top layer of your skin that makes your skin look uneven.
Additionally, for some, this procedure isn’t painless, but there might be a slight tingling sensation during the procedure.
This procedure take anywhere between 7-10 minutes, as it takes attention and precision to perform this.
Post the treatment, your provider will soothe your skin, followed by sunscreen to add a layer of protection to your skin.
How Does It Feel Like
Immediately after the procedure, you will notice that your complexion looks brighter than before. People with sensitive skin might feel redness on their skin, but it takes a few days to see the full results. With time, you will notice your skin getting clearer. Infact dermaplaning with Face Razor boosts collagen production.
The results are not permanent. As a precautionary measure, stay away from the sun. Damage from the sun can create pigment on your skin after the procedure.
