The surface layer of the skin the Stratum Corneum is made up of mainly dead skin cells, keratinised cells, if these do not desquamate, shed off, the skin can get a build up of these dead cells making it appear dull and tired.
Dermaplaning brightens the skin and can remove three times more dead skin cells than microdermabrasion. The removal of the dead skin cells and the vellous hair provides a flawless base for the application of make up and serums or other products.
Dermaplaning is not to be confused with Dermabrasion, a medical procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis with a whisk like device. There can be complications associated with dermabrasion such as infections or scarring, which is why it is not commonly used anymore. Dermaplaning is a much simpler exfoliation of the epidermis. Because Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the world. Using a medical grade tool and a delicate touch, the technician simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
