I have seen a flurry of at-home facial razors in the beauty section promising dermaplaning results without the spa visit. But is it really the same? Simply put, no. Do some of the results cross yes-ish? Let’s break down the differences.
The at-home version ↓🏠
If you want to get rid of your peach fuzz or upper lip hair, shaving may be a good option for you. However, be wary of razor burns, ingrown hairs, and ensure you sterilize the blade between uses!
As you can see, dermaplaning and shaving are very different treatments. Dermaplaning involves exfoliating your epidermis and removing peach fuzz with a sharp surgical blade, performed by trained estheticians. If you have acne or rosacea, skip both dermaplaning & the at-home version, as it can worsen these conditions.
