Dermaplaning is a super easy way to remove dead skin, facial hair, and other grime, leaving your skin smooth, glowing, and refreshed. Better yet, it can help your skincare products to absorb more effectively and even help makeup go on more smoothly. Before starting any treatment, it’s best to do some research and determine if it’s right for you. We’re here to help you understand the basics of dermaplaning with a few commonly asked questions to help you out.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that instantly and visibly removes fine hair and layers of dead skin cells, which helps reveal skin’s glow.

The process uses a small Dermaplaning Razor and has traditionally been achieved by a dermatologist or esthetician. We’re proud to introduce a complete dermaplaning routine that you can use at home, making it easy and affordable. The blade with Skin Defense Guard helps protect your skin from shave irritation, thanks to the rounded protective tip and guard around the blade. Venus for Dermaplaning & Skincare with Olay is dermatologist tested, and designed to respect your skin, whether you’re a first timer or an expert.

Dermaplaning can be done on skin like the forehead, above the lip, chin, cheeks, or sideburns. The act of dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that can help improve skin’s appearance.

Dermaplaning assists in surface cell turnover and renewal by removing dead skin cells, fine hair, and other grime. When used correctly, the end result is smooth, glowing skin; however, avoid use on acne, lesions, or broken skin.

Is Dermaplaning Like Shaving?

Women have been shaving their faces for years, and dermaplaning is a great way to remove fine hair. Venus’ dermaplaning razor uses a small, specially designed blade with a built-in Skin Defense Guard that easily exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin for a glowing complexion, and also allows for precision in terms of the areas targeted. Depending on your individual skin type, results can last up to a few weeks. To maintain your results, dermaplaning can be done as needed.
