Dermaplaning, a form of shaving, is a well-known skin treatment that works to remove ultra-fine facial hair—sometimes referred to as "peach fuzz"—as well as dead skin cells. The result? Ultra smooth skin. 

The method counts several celebs as fans, including Selling Sunset's Marie Lou Nurk and Eva Mendes, so you know there must be something in it. Marie Lou took to Instagram Stories recently saying her dermatologist recommended facial shaving to her, sharing that it gives her skin a "really nice glow" and that she uses a tool by Tweezerman. Meanwhile Eva took to Instagram just over a month ago to rave about the treatment, writing: "I LOVE it!".

While a trained professional will be able to perform the treatment safely and skilfully, achieving the best results, you can purchase dermaplaning tools to de-fuzz in the comfort of your own home. Even better news? Many are currently discounted as part of the ongoing self-care Prime Day deals, including Marie Lou's exact tool, meaning you can snap up a set for as little as five dollars. Here's what you need to know...

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

In short, smooth, glowing skin. "Dermaplaning helps to increase the penetration of active ingredients in your skincare products, which means you could potentially see improvements in your skin faster with continued and consistent use," says Jenna Unwin, dermaplaning technician and founder of Million Dollar Facial. "For years it’s been the A-Lister must-have treatment, as it gives a smoother base for your foundation and other makeup products, which means a softer finish."

Are there any risk associated with at-home dermaplaning?

If you are going to use a dermaplaning tool for hair removal at home, it's super important that you use a clean tool every single time to avoid spreading bacteria. You also have to bear in mind you are using a razor and be very careful not to actually cut the skin.

There are also some skin types for whom dermaplaning is not suitable, such as active breakouts or acne. "I recommend my clients don’t dermaplane with an active breakout, but when performed correctly dermaplaning won’t cause a breakout," Unwin says. "It should help prevent breakouts, by removing the building of dead skin and excess oils."

You also shouldn't over-plane. "If you disrupt the skin barrier too much and over-exfoliate, you may be making more inflammation," she continues. "As a general rule, I recommend dermaplaning once a month in line with the body's natural skin cell replacement process."
