What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a fancy name for shaving your face with a scalpel blade. It takes off superficial layers of dead skin cells while also removing hair. It leaves your skin baby-bottom soft.

Every time you shave your legs don't they feel super soft? You're dermaplaning them! That's because you just shaved off superficial layers of skin.

But just how well does it work on your face?

You can also shave your face with a razor. My mother does this and has the most gorgeous skin. Shaving your face doesn't make hair courser, thicker or grow back any faster. There's science behind it.

Think about it: have you ever noticed how soft men's skin is after they shave their face?  That's why many men have better skin in their 30's and 40's than some women. The guys are constantly exfoliating superficial layers of dead skin.

Dermaplaning In Action

I scheduled a Dermaplaning procedure at Luxury on Lovers for lunchtime on a Wednesday. This was as simple and straightforward a procedure as it gets.

Aesthetician Monica Klocksieben, who performed my SkinPen procedure, cleansed my face and swiped it with some antiseptic to ensure it was clean. Then she got to work using a surgical grade scalpel to scrape off layers of dead skin. While doing this, it also takes off that peach fuzzy, baby fine hair that covers our face have.

During the Dermaplaning facial, there was no pain or discomfort. Nothing.

Applying the vitamin C mask
Following the Dermaplaning facial, we applied a cool vitamin C antioxidant mask which hardened into a peachy, wax-like coating on my face. This delivers an antioxidant punch on that fresh, newly exfoliated skin.

My Dermaplaning Results
I am thrilled with the results of this procedure. Dermaplaning has absolutely no downtime. You can apply your makeup and go immediately after the facial. My face wasn't sore or red. It was, in a word, glowing.

Immediately after the Dermaplaning facial and mask - no redness or swelling. Just glowing skin!

You can get a Dermaplaning Facial as often as every two weeks, although it is recommended that you don't do them more than once a month.

After the Facial 
It's important that you take care of your skin and protect it from the sun every day. It's especially important that you do that after a procedure. That means wearing a moisturizer with sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoiding irritants.

I don't go outside without, at the minimum, sunscreen on my face, neck and hands. There are couple I love and have reviewed here: EltaMD UV Tinted Daily and Luna + Aster CC Cream with SPF 50.

I also love Supergoop Setting Spray with Rosemary and SPF 50 which I reapply throughout the day. This setting spray is so refreshing on a hot day. Bonus? It smells magnificent.

Another one I can't live without? ColorScience Powder Sunscreen. This is an outstanding mineral-based sunscreen that you can reapply throughout the day. It also delivers a matte finish, so you can use it as a powder.
