Why are women shaving their faces?

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

The concept may sounds strange but women everywhere are lining up in their Esthetician's offices to try Dermaplaning, which is essentially a scalpel facial.

The primary use of dermaplaning is to get rid of peach fuzz on the face.

During a Dermaplaning session, the esthetician uses a medical-grade scalpel to scrape (not cut!) across the surface of the skin. The main reason people do it is to remove the vellus hairs on their faces, also known as peach fuzz.

This professional exfoliation treatment gently scrapes off the top layer of dulling and dead skin cells. What’s left is a smoother, brighter complexion. A bonus: this process can also help those struggling with acne.

You might be concerned that your hair grow back thicker? The answer is no. Whatever hair removal method you use, it has no affect on how your hair grows—the speed of growth is all a matter of genetics. So you won’t suffer a 5 o’clock shadow once you remove the hair.

Because Dermaplaning involves the use of a sharp scalpel, this procedure should always be carried out by a medical spa professional.

A few quick tidbits:

  1. Dermaplaning is extremely gentle and pain-free.

  2. It will give you your most luminous, soft skin.

  3. It's the best way to exfoliate your skin

  4. It helps makeup go on more smoothly

  5. It's relatively inexpensive

  6. It lasts up to 4 weeks

  7. It's similar to a straight razor barbershop shave
