I’ve had a few people approach me and ask my opinion on the “at home” dermaplaning tool. And because I am so passionate about the industry, and love dermaplaning, I thought I’d write a little blog to clarify. These tools seem to be trending and are being advertised as dermaplaning.

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is the removal of the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz).
