Dermaplaning: An Inexpensive Way to Exfoliate
Dermaplaning is a procedure performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. They use a scalpel held at a medium angle to your face to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells: exfoliation! The bonus of this treatment is that it also removes any facial hair or peach fuzz that you may have on your face. Remember when we discussed why men might appear to have better skin as they age? Men spend their entire adulthood shaving their face, which exfoliates away those aging dead skin cells, much like the process of dermaplaning.
While dermaplaning is only available in office, women, like their male counterparts, can turn to a razor and shaving cream to get similar results at home. Dr. Schultz even recommends using the same products you use for your legs in the shower to treat your face. Worried about the grow-out? Don't be. It's just a myth that shaving causes your hair to grow back thicker.
At-home dermaplaning is an inexpensive way to physically exfoliate from the comfort of your own home.
