A dermaplane facial involves the use of a sterile surgical scalpel blade that is run across the face in short strokes. What this does is removes dead skin cells and vellus hairs (peach fuzz). While a surgical scalpel blade is used, there’s no need to worry about this penetrating your skin as it is held at a 45 degree angle, simply intended for scraping the skin.
It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained technician. The dermaplaning technique is performed by using a specialised sterile surgical scalpel blade. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin-tight and gently scrapes the blade at a 45-degree angle.
