The Truth About Dermaplaning

It’s no secret that celebrities take immaculate care of their skin and see specialists as often as possible for the latest trend in beautifying skin care. But if you’re not part of the secret club and you’re looking to find out what gives celebrities such flawless skin, look no further! Dermaplaning has been “out-ed” as one of the top beauty secrets in Hollywood.  Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and even Cleopatra were all rumored to have shaved their faces to rid themselves of unwanted peach fuzz.  However, what they didn’t know at the time was that they were also keeping their skin exfoliated, getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and even sun damage.  Dermaplaning is a technique where a licensed and trained esthetician uses a #10 steel blade positioned at a 45 degree angle to remove dead skin and Vellus hair.  Vellus hair is the peach fuzz that grows on a woman’s face.  And no, it does not grow back thicker or darker, just in case you were wondering. Around age 30 our natural exfoliation process goes from every two weeks to once every 40 days, leaving dead skin hanging around for almost two months. This layer of dead skin suffocates the lower levels of skin halting the renewal of cells which leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and a dull complexion.  With Dermaplaning, we speed up the skin cell turnover and bring on the glow!  And no pesky peach fuzz means smooth make-up and a flawless complexion!  Pssst….Pass it on!
