Of all the beauty procedures being practiced, facial hair removal is one of the least pleasant. The thought of placing a razor blade near your face is in itself undesirable, let alone the numerous myths that surround facial hair removal. One of the most popular myths about facial hair removal is that the hair grows back thicker. Fortunately, this is entirely untrue. Unfortunately, almost everyone has facial hair. Women, therefore, have to work diligently to keep unwanted hair at bay. Fortunately, the beauty arena has seen the resurgence of painless dermaplaning.

Resurgence of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a facial procedure during which a certified medical esthetician removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz using a sharp blade across the facial skin’s surface. Unlike traditional shaving, the main goal of dermaplaning is physical exfoliation rather than simple hair removal. Removal of the vellus hair only comes as a welcome side effect. This method works like magic by sloughing off layers of dead skin, even on the hairless parts of the face. 

This manual exfoliation treatment is currently not limited to medical spas, to the delight of many women. Dermaplaning inspired an at-home face hair removal tool called Dermaflash, which produces the same effects as the medical-grade treatment. Dermaplaning can now be performed safely at home, unlike before, when it could only be performed by a nurse, physician, or trained medical esthetician.

Dermaplaning at Home With Dermaflash

Dara Levy, the founder of Dermaflash, created the device after realizing that she had not come across an at-home solution in her five years of dermaplaning at her medical spa. This resulted in the birth of Dermaflash. The device is powered by a sonic vibration that provides efficacy and comfort. For safety, the blade is covered by a safety cage that ensures smooth and safe results. The clever design of this facial hair remover ensures that nothing goes wrong and it is safe for use by everyone.

However, you should not consider dermaplaning at home if you have a skin infection or lots of pustular acne. People with sunburned or windburned facial skin should also avoid dermaplaning. To keep your skin as sanitary as possible, experts recommend that DIY dermaplaning be done with a new blade each time.

According to Levy, the device does not impact the color, texture, or growth of a woman’s facial hair and only removes the vellus hair just above the skin’s surface. Dermaplaning should leave your skin feeling more vibrant and brighter. You have probably seen Dermaflash ads while scrolling through Instagram or heard from Lizzo’s makeup artist, who uses it to deliver smooth skin for celebrities just before the Grammys. 

Dermaflash offers two hair removing devices: the Dermaflash One and the Dermaflash Luxe. The Luxe comes with a second speed to deliver smoother and more glowy skin. As long as you follow the directions, you are good to go.
