What's the difference between dermaplaning, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion?

Dermaplaning and dermabrasion are both skin resurfacing treatments that can improve skin blemishes and correct signs of aging. The main difference between dermabrasion and dermaplaning is the tool used.

Dermabrasion is performed with a tool that spins a rough material against your skin. Dermaplaning (also called dermablading) is performed with a dermablade, which is a small blade that is used to scrape off the upper layers of skin. Microdermabrasion is a lighter version of dermabrasion that is best to remove the upper layer of dead skin cells for smoother, softer skin.
