With the surge of TikTok trends, viral Facebook posts and Pinterest DIY’s, it can be hard to determine what is actually legitimate and what’s not. One of those current popular trends is at-home dermaplaning. Although it’s a popular trend on the internet, dermaplaning is one procedure you should not try to do yourself!
Dermaplaning is a treatment where a scalpel blade is used on the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells & peach fuzz, exfoliating the skin and improving your skin’s texture. At-home dermaplaning treatments and tools simply shave your face, while dermaplaning treatments in a med spa are medical aesthetic treatments that do much more. While we do typically recommend this procedure to patients, it’s important you do not try it yourself. As previously mentioned, dermaplaning is performed with a scalpel blade, so when used incorrectly, there is a lot that could go wrong.
Effective and safe dermaplaning requires a specific technique and an exact angle. Without knowing this, it is extremely possible you can cut your skin, which can then result in an infection and/or scarring of the skin. Not only can self-dermaplaning be dangerous, but it can also be significantly less effective.
