Even we were surprised to find out that one of Sephora’s best-selling beauty tools is not a cleansing brush nor a trendy laser, but instead the Dermaflash, an at-home dermaplaning device that managed to debunk the stigma associated with facial shaving — and made it mainstream. Now, Dermaflash is getting a major makeover for spring.
Dermaflash is a facial exfoliating kit that’s helped popularize the practice of dermaplaning — a deeper form of microdermabrasion, Neil Sadick, a dermatologist in New York City, previously told Allure. Using an angled blade and sonic pulses, dermaplaning tools remove peach fuzz. But that’s only the beginning.
More than the hair-removal benefits — something many might argue is going by the wayside — dermaplaning is lauded for its skin benefits. In addition to hair removal, dermaplaning also swipes away the top layer of skin, while “the sonic vibrations reduce friction and generate a pulse that resonates deep beneath the skin’s surface,” Dara Levy, founder of Dermaflash, previously told Allure. In other words, it’s more than just a glorified razor.
And Dermaflash is getting an upgrade, dubbed the Dermaflash 2.0. The new tool will hit stores in February, boasting a much sleeker and chicer look and feel. The upgraded version, which will retail for the same price as the OG tool, will feature multiple speeds and will come pre-charged.
Plus, the new design is a lot prettier — Dermaflash 2.0 now looks fittingly just like a mint-green magic wand. With the new look, sharing your love of at-home dermaplaning on Instagram will be a whole lot easier. At $189 a pop at sephora.com beginning February 1, consider this the perfect use for all the beauty gift cards you’ve been hoarding since the holidays.
