Why are women shaving their faces? Here's why people are talking about dermaplaning.

Date:


Men aren’t the only ones shaving their faces. Now, women are too.

And they’re openly sharing their experiences with dermaplaning, which involves shaving the tiny, soft hairs on your face for an instantaneous youthful glow. 

Mona Gohara, a dermatologist and associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale University, is glad to see the practice has become a talker in recent years, especially on social media. The hashtag #dermaplaning, how has over 1.8 billion views on TikTok. 

“As a Middle Eastern woman, I constantly have hair on my face. So to be able to exfoliate and remove those hairs is a big cosmetic benefit,” she says. 

Typically, a dermatologist or licensed esthetician will use a surgical-grade scalpel to scrape off vellus hair (also known as “peach fuzz”) and a top layer of dead skin cells. But experts say you can also do it from home with an exfoliation tool.
