Dermaplaning keeps skin looking younger -

Dermaplaning brightens skin

Half of all Americans - regardless of income - say they approve of cosmetic surgery. If you fall into that half, a non-surgical skin treatment called dermaplaning is one new way you may want to freshen up your face.

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that clears away dry and dead skin layers.

According to esthetician Betsy Taylor, here's how the process works: "We take a surgical blade and remove the first layer of usually dead skin from the epidermis. It's a two-step process, and in the second step, we use a chemical peel and after we remove that dead skin, it helps the chemical penetrate a little deeper."

Taylor says exfoliation is one of the best ways to keep skin looking younger, and more people - women and men - are turning to non-surgical cosmetic work to do so. 

Because of the quest for a healthier, younger look, more people are finding ways to budget for cosmetic work. Everything from dermaplaning and chemical peels to Botox.

"Just like they do for other ways to take care of themselves, whether it's the gym, or nutrition, it's just something people work into their budget to keep their skin healthy," says Taylor.
