Are at home Dermaplaning products effective?
The at home dermaplaning systems that are available for consumers to purchase are not at all comparable to a professional dermaplaning treatment. These products are always designed with consumer liability in mind. Much like a razor, these systems have a ‘guard’ that prevents any real exfoliation. The hair will be removed which gives the impression or illusion that they are getting the benefits of a professional treatment, but there is little to no actual exfoliation of the skin. A professional dermaplaning treatment is performed by a trained and certified skin care practitioner, using an ‘unguarded’ dermaplaning blade. The purpose of the treatment is to exfoliate the skin. Subsequently the hair is removed as an added benefit.
