Dermaplaning Facial in Toronto
Dermaplaning facial is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands.
Dermaplaning facial is now one of the most requested treatments in New York skin clinics. Also, it is a favorite exfoliation technique in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning facial also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

Shaving your face is more common than you might think
How is Dermaplaning Facial done?
Dermaplaning treatment is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face. First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge surgical blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off layers of dead skin and peach fuzz.
Dermaplaning Facial versus Microdermabrasion
Wondering if you should try Dermaplaning facial versus microdermabrasion? They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning tool safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for sensitive skin, drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But, keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference.
