Dermaplaning facial?

Has anyone had a dermaplaning facial? What are the benefits other than removing baby hairs from face?

I had one last week. Was really excited as the fine hairs on my face catch the light and don't look great. Bit disappointed to be honest. Hasn't removed all of the fine hairs - there are still some round my jaw and mouth, and the dermaplaning seemed to take the top off some spots which had almost healed so now my spots look angrier than before. Won't be having another in a hurry...

When I see beauticians post online they just show the hair that's come off. I have rosacea so don't think it will help my redness! Seems to be quite 'in' at the moment.

I do it myself and quite like the effect but wouldn’t pay £50 every month for it. I use eyebrow trimmer blades.

Does it make hair grow back thicker?

No, the difference is that the ends of the hairs are blunt rather than tapered but I haven’t noticed any real difference

No idea about dermaplaning etc, but if it's hair removal that's wanted I'd go with threading. I'm fair haired, but still love getting my top lip done when I have my brows done. Just leaves it all feeling and looking really smooth.

I do it myself. Gets rid of all the peach fuzz and any dry skin so my makeup goes on smoother. I use a scalpel, you have to do it on dry (not even damp!) skin with no product on
Then I use a hydrating toner and moisturiser as usual

@Ollivander84 that's interesting you do it dry, why?

I always slather cleansing oil or balm on first!


Ollivander84 · 06/11/2018 22:44

Works SO much better. I watched an instruction video on YouTube before I ordered scalpels and if it's dry it gets more skin and hair off

@Ollivander84 well you're obviously an expert 😀😀😀
Care to share the link please? And the scalpels?
I just got some med grade ones from amazon 🙊🙊🙊

I can't remember which video I used but I went on YouTube and looked for dermaplaning at home! Scalpels are off eBay, size 10 ones

I’ve got a very furry face and lots of ‘blind’ bumps. They’re not white heads more tiny sebaceous lumps. Would dermaplaning help?
