Dermaplaning | Hollywood's skin-care secret

Natural glow...wide-awake eyes...radiant skin! Well, celebs seem to have them all. Sure, they have great genes but they also have amazing makeup artists, stylists, and some very well kept industry secrets! Dermaplaning is one of Hollywood’s beauty secrets.

Celebrities usually credit their glowing, flawless skin to their proficient skin-care routine and habits like drinking a lot of water, avoiding the sun and of course, the beauty products they endorse. If you think that’s all, this article’s gonna change your perception. Going ahead, there’s the inside scoop of celebrity skin-care! Hint- It doesn’t involve gulping gallons of water.

What Is Dermaplaning all about?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic skin treatment that uses a sharp tool to exfoliate your skin. It removes dead skin cells and fine facial hairs with an exfoliating blade. In this procedure, the dermatologist uses a small scalpel to gently scrape the surface of your skin using light strokes. Yes, this sounds straight out of a horror movie but keep reading, as sounds can be deceptive!

Dermaplaning is a way to resurface the skin. Besides, dermaplaning side effects are almost negligible. You may have redness or small cuts but that’s superficial and gets cured soon.

If you ever ask a dermatologist about dermaplaning at home, the answer will usually be “no”. That’s not because it’s unsafe to do so or wouldn’t fetch expected results. Of course, you may not have the exact same results as a professional treatment but that’s no good reason to not try it at home! 

Professionals will always advise on seeing them for dermaplaning treatments. However, you can easily dermaplane at home with a little effort and a good dermaplaning tool. An added benefit of doing this at home is that it is cost-effective and has high utility.

Popularity comes with rumors and myths. So is the case with dermaplaning! Dive in for some myths about dermaplaning.Dermaplaning causes dark hair to grow back

Of all the myths, this one is the most popular. Your hair will grow back with exactly the same color as it was previously. No process can change the structure of your hair follicle by simply shaving it off.

Dermaplaning causes thicker hair to grow back

This is an extension of the above myth. Peach fuzz shaving does not change the structure of your hair follicle! The razor cuts the hair off on the surface level of your skin, without even touching the actual follicle. Hair has a blunt edge, so while it grows, it might feel thicker. However, once it fully grows back, it will look and feel exactly the same as before.

Dermaplaning is painful

Ouch! This myth hurts. Dermaplaning is absolutely pain-free. In fact, it causes lesser pain than waxing, lasering, or threading. It is safe for all skin types, with severe acne breakouts as an exception.
