Looking for the best way to remove facial hair? You’ve come to the right place! Sonic dermaplaning is an easy solution to facial fuzz, plus it comes with built-in skin improving benefits. Read on for 6 reasons why you’ll love the results you see with the award-winning LUXE+ Sonic Dermaplaning wand.

1. Best way to remove facial hair for sensitive skin

When you have sensitive skin, it can be tricky to figure out the peach fuzz removal method that works best for you. Some techniques are suitable for sensitive skin, but other methods can leave your skin looking and feeling downright angry. Depilatory creams, for example, use strong chemicals to temporarily remove hair and can be very irritating to sensitive or reactive skin types. (Not to mention cause chemical burns if used incorrectly—no thank you!) Waxing can be appropriate when done by a professional esthetician, but upkeep can be time-consuming and pricey.

Sonic dermaplaning, on the other hand, is a chemical-free method of facial hair removal that you can do in less than 10 minutes a week, right in your own bathroom. The patented Sonic Technology and unique Microfine Edge work together to remove peach fuzz safely and gently, so your skin looks smooth, glowy and fuzz-free (not red or irritated). One word of caution: If you have cystic acne, don’t dermaplane over any active bumps or blemishes—and always talk to your dermatologist first before using any method of facial hair removal. 

2. Gives your skin instant glow

When you give yourself a sonic dermaplaning treatment, you’re not only getting the benefit of peach fuzz removal—you’re getting an instant “glass skin” glow. Why? Well, in addition to removing vellus hair [link to our vellus hair article], you’re removing that top layer of dead skin cells and debris that we all have on our skin. That layer of build-up actually prevents light from reflecting off your face, dulling your glow.

Once it’s removed, you’ll see fresher, more radiant (and younger-looking!) skin underneath. In addition, light will be able to reflect off the high points of your face, leaving you with a naturally lit-from-within glow. We’ll take it!

 3. Keeps your skin safe

Sure, you could remove facial hair with a disposable razor, but that method leaves your skin more vulnerable to nicks and scrapes. Not to mention the fact that shaving doesn’t deliver the clinically proven exfoliating benefits of sonic dermaplaning.

When we designed our LUXE+ sonic dermaplaning wand, we prioritized your skin’s safety. Our device uses award-winning sonic technology to ensure a smooth, tug-free glide across your face, unlike cheap razors that can skip or tug. In addition, the blade that’s used in your LUXE+ device is completely different from disposable razor blades. Our Microfine Edge has a patented Safety Cage that keeps your skin protected during every treatment, so you can Flash with confidence.

4. Improves skin over time

LUXE+ Sonic Dermaplaning is a true multi-tasker…not only does it get rid of that halo of peach fuzz, it actually improves your skin texture and tone in the long term. We did clinical studies with women between the ages of 35 and 65, and an instrumental analysis showed that after using LUXE+ once a week for 4 weeks, 94% of our testers had reduced appearance of dark spots and 97% had less visible fine lines and wrinkles. It just goes to show you…when it comes to skincare, consistency is key!

5. Recommended by dermatologists + estheticians

Derms and estheticians tend to be cautious when talking about the best products for removing facial hair, but LUXE+ has earned their stamp of approval thanks to its unique safety features and added skincare benefits. “I’m a trained medical esthetician and I use DERMAFLASH in my practice,” says Kara Sevransky. “I absolutely recommend it for exfoliation. My clients love it. We can treat the skin easier, with the added benefit of removing peach fuzz.”

6. Hair won't grow back thicker or faster

Last but not least, removing your peach fuzz will NOT cause it to come back any thicker, darker or faster. Neither shaving nor sonic dermaplaning can change the hair follicle or affect hair’s natural growth pattern in any way. In addition, because vellus hairs on your face are so thin, fine and soft, they won’t have that blunt tip you’d notice with terminal hair (i.e. the hair on your head or underarms). “Your peach fuzz will grow back exactly as it was before you Flashed. No thicker, no darker, no different,” explains Dr. Arisa Ortiz, a board-certified dermatologist and director of laser and cosmetic dermatology at UC San Diego Health.
