Dermaplaning Vs. Shaving
Written by Kerry Benjamin
HOW THE DERMAPLANING TOOL IS DIFFERENT FROM A REGULAR RAZOR
Don’t be deceived--even though dermaplaning is often called “facial shaving,” your razor won’t give you the same results. Here’s how our Dermaplaning Tool is different from a regular razor and why you need it to achieve instantly brighter, smoother skin.
MORE CONSISTENT EXFOLIATION
Dermaplaning is an excellent physical exfoliation treatment that removes the outer most layer of dead cells to reveal brighter, healthier-looking skin. It also removes peach fuzz, creating a smoother and more radiant complexion. While shaving with a regular razor might remove some dead skin cells, it provides much more inconsistent results because razors aren’t designed to remove dead skin--they’re designed to remove thicker hair. Dermaplaning evenly exfoliates your face, revealing more luminous skin while allowing your skincare products to penetrate more effectively and makeup to go on more smoothly.
GENTLER THAN A RAZOR
In-office dermaplaning procedures use a single edge #10 scalpel blade that skims the surfaceof the skin to more effectively remove dead skin than a regular razor. Regular razors often have multiple slanted blades that are duller than those found in a dermaplaning tool. Going over the same area with multiple duller blades can cause abrasions, razor burn and injury to the skin.Our DERMAPLANING TOOL is designed to recreate the gentle exfoliation depth achieved during an in-office treatment while being safe for at-home use.
BUILT-IN SAFETY CONTROL
Our DERMAPLANING TOOL is designed with safety in mind. It features a single edge blade witha beveled plastic piece wrapped around the tip. The beveled tip helps you place the blade at the right angle on your skin, which gives you better results and ensures that you will not knick yourself during use. Its ambidextrous metal handle is designed to help you achieve short, feathery strokes that are both gentler and safer for your skin than strokes achieved with a razor.
Most razors are designed to remove hair from large areas of the face or body. Our DERMAPLANING TOOL has a slim design that better exfoliates the contours of the face and provides more detailed results. Advanced users of our tool can swap out the standard blade for our Precision Dermaplaning Blades, a smaller design that expertly sculpts the area around the brows, navigates the tricky contours of the nose, and targets the upper lip.
