How I feel AFTER Dermaplaning

This post is in collaboration with and sponsored by Stacked Skincare.

I have to say my skin has never felt so smooth. I’m sitting here on a plane (seems like I’ve been spending a lot of time on planes and airports recently.) I don’t say that to sound posh, because let’s be honest, airports are not glamorous. At all. I say it because my skin feels like it can breathe and it just feels so fresh. It’s honestly a bit of a weird feeling to explain, but I can sincerely feel the difference. I used my Stacked Skincare dermaplaning tool last night, and I’m going to admit I had some doubts about it but I nipped those doubts in the butt. I’m telling you about all the things I thought about dermaplaning, that were in fact not true.

The misconceptions.

It’s going to hurt.

It did not hurt at all, and was less invasive than I even expected. I could feel my skin was a bit raw after I used the tool in a few spots for the second time (no more than two!) but it was just the feeling of scraping the dead skin cells. Once I applied the serums after I was done, my skin felt completely fine.

You will cut yourself.

When you think about it logically, you are technically putting a blade to your face. However, keep in mind that men have used a blade to shave for decades. This is not new technology, but the idea of the blade grazing the skin to remove dead skin cells IS. As long as you’re following the instructions given to you on the packaging and holding your skin while using the blade at a 45 degree angle, you’re all set. I will say I had to watch the video at least twice to make sure I did the process properly.

This should be done by a professional.

Nonsense. This is something that is completely DIY worthy. You can do this yourself. I have friends who pay upwards of $100 per month for the dermaplaning but you can buy this tool and do this yourself for a fraction of the cost.

Now that I got the misconceptions about dermaplaning out of the way, I wanted to dive into why I genuinely love this brand through and through. Backed by science and research, they made the right tools. The owner and founder, Kerry Benjamin, is an aesthetician. The biggest difference with Stacked Skincare is their set of amazing tools. While many skincare brands have lots of products for various skin concerns, Stacked Skincare also has the necessary tools.

How I Found Stacked Skincare

Let's back up to how how I found them. To be clear when I say I, I mean the fiance did. He was looking for the best solution for under-eye bags and puffiness as it’s an ongoing problem for him. After searching for hours and reading countless articles, he learned that a derma-roller (also called micro-roller) could be his best bet. Next he researched derma-rollers and read hundreds of reviews. The best result was the Stacked Skincare micro-roller. We decided to buy a set of two so I could also test it out and see how it did on my skin. Aaron and I have very different skin so it was going to be super interesting to see how mine did in comparison to his.

I’m 26, several fine lines (most on my neck if I’m honest) and I tend to have oilier skin especially if you give me non-mattifying foundations. When I first started using the micro-roller, I saw almost immediate results. I don’t know about you, but we all seem to live in the day and age where instant gratification is the best way to engage us and get us excited about anything. When I roll this over my skin, it does make me a bit red but it is stimulating the collagen in my skin, removing those dull dead skin cells on the exterior, to reveal that beautiful glowing skin underneath. After rolling this for just a week, I saw a massive difference in the fine lines on my skin.

Now for Aaron, this has been the solution he was looking for as it relates to his under eye bags and puffiness. It has helped significantly deflate that puffiness after just a week of rolling consistently. He was a bit more aggressive with it than I. He rolls in the morning and night, whereas I really only focus on the nighttime.

Fast forward to today, where I’ve been using their tools for almost two months. My skin is looking less congested overall, more of a healthy glow with a softness I’ve never experienced before. I genuinely do feel that dermaplaning is the best way to exfoliate, get rid of that annoying peach fuzz and get the smoothest skin possible. Once your skin is back to normal after the dermaplaning, that is when you bust out the micro roller and make it a point to roll the skin regularly (at least once a day) to get the collagen stimulated and also keep those dead skin cells off your skin. With consistent rolling, you can make those fine lines really start to fade.

With the hydrating serum, you also whip your skin back into shape after dermaplaning and micro rolling. When I finished the dermaplaning, my skin did feel a bit raw so putting that hydrating serum made a huge difference. As soon as it touched my skin, I felt that cooling sensation of hydration. I noticed that it really sunk into the skin so much better than it ever would if I hadn’t used the dermaplaning tool.

With anything, I genuinely think it’s important to make sure you’re using the cleanest tools and taking care never to touch your face with dirty hands. Stacked Skincare does have dermaplaning blade refills, so you don’t need to purchase the tool over and over again.

For a short time, Stacked Skincare is kindly offering a discount code for my audience to get in on their amazing tools and products.

Use the code ‘ADAATUDE’ for 10% off anything on their site.

This is beyond kind of them (I make no percentage of the sales if you use my code.) The code is just a kind gesture from them to show appreciation for your interest in their tools.

I know dermaplaning isn’t necessarily mainstream just yet, so tell me, what questions do you have? Happy to answer them in the comments below!

What an interesting concept! I have heard of it before, but I have never tried it! It sounds like it works wonders on your face!

It does work wonders. Did you watch my video? I did it live in the moment so you can see what it looks like in the moment xx

I definitely think you should read about it, and read the reviews of people who have used the dermaplaning tool. There’s just so many people who vouch for the tool, it’s awesome! x

Yes! It is so much more affordable to do this YOURSELF, and there’s no reason to have someone else do it for you! x

I plan to do it once a month, maybe twice a month now that it’s winter and we all seem to have a little extra dry skin that will flake off. It really makes a huge difference! x

I have been hearing about this and was wondering how well it worked. I would love to give this a try. I like that you can do it yourself.

I’ve heard so many good things about micro rolling and I think women should definitely give it a try. It doesn’t hurt at all and it’s really effective. I love that it’s an option for those of us who doesn’t want to try invasive treatments on our skin.

I had to heard of some of this before but I hadn’t taken the time to read up on it until your post. I enjoyed reading all of your information and how you explained it so well. I always thought a professional should do it and that it hurt so thank you for dispelling those myths.

I did assume it would hurt but have heard so many great things about micro-rolling so I may need to give this little tool a try

First time I’ve heard of this brand. I never have tried a Derma Roller because my skin usually does great and I don’t want to mess with it. I wouldn’t mind getting rid of some dark circles under my eyes though!

I’ve always wanted to try this but never really knew how. I didn’t know that you didn’t have to go to a professional to get it done! I’ll definitely have to look into trying this at home, thanks for sharing!

That was my biggest fear too if I’m being honest. I was afraid I would scrap skin off my face, but that did NOT happen! x

Skin care is so important! I am a huge advocate for micro needling which is very similar. I also own a roller at home for when I cannot get in the office

I love that you’re well educated in skincare, especially given your knowledge of micro-needling and having a roller at home. You go glen coco! x

Glad to hear that the roller and serum worked so well for you. I love my roller, but I love the dermaplaning tool ever MORE! x

I hope you do, as it’s the most amazing skincare tool I’VE EVER purchased! I say that with a somewhat heavy heart because I have so many amazing tools I love in this industry and it’s always hard to pick the main one! x

Honestly, this is the first time that I’ve heard of Dermaplaning. I would love to try it one of these days though. Your skin looks great!

I haven’t ever heard of micro rolling, but I am fascinated by it! Definitely looking into it more – thank you for sharing!

I’ve been considering this but I am such a punk with pain and i honestly thought it would hurt. I mean blades, face.. ya know. Yet now I see it is something I can do myself. I may need to look into getting this tool for myself.

OMG, your skin looks INCREDIBLE! I’m not familiar with dermaplaning, but I’m willing to try it if my complexion can look like yours lol.

Hey Beth! Glad to see you back on my blog. I hope this was informative enough for you, as I know the dermaplaning process is not necessarily mainstream yet but it’s definitely why I wanted to talk about it and get it more mainstream because you can do this process yourself. It’s so easy! Have you had a chance to check out the video? x

My sister had dermaplaning done a few years ago. She said it did not hurt and the results were better than expected.

That’s exactly how I feel. The results were even better than what I expected, and I genuinely believe this is a great tool for your own use. I love DIY products, especially when it costs so much to have someone do this procedure for you! x

I definitely think you should read about it a bit more. It is life-changing, and makes your skin so much healthier overall. I had to read about it first before I decided to take the plunge! x

This sounds like a pretty useful skin product. I actually do believe some of those myths you mentioned. Interesting to know.

I”ve never heard of this technique before. I am really interested in checking it out and giving it a try for myself.

Hi Cyn! I definitely think it’s a great tool to consider if you’ve never done dermaplaning before. Read up about it before you buy the tool, but this is the best tool on the market. It’s pricey, but so worth it! x

Yes! & it actually had really different results for both of us, which is nice. His under-eye puffiness and bags are SO much better, and my skin looks more glowy and healthy with the consistent rolling. It’s really neat that it worked for us in different ways! x

I have not heard of this before, With a little i don’t have much of a beauty routine at the moment. this might be something to consider adding one of these days.

Thanks for the kind words Hope, I really appreciate it. It’s always nice to see people appreciate the hard work that went into the building of the entire site. There’s a whole team behind it. Hope you enjoyed this post! x

I’ve never heard about this before! This sounds like such a great way to take care of your skin.

Tell me how it goes next week with the aesthetician and definitely check out Stacked’s tool. The discount code is only going on for a few days, so make sure to snag your tool while the code is still live! x

I haven’t tried any of these products, but I should definitely check them out. I need to update my beauty routine and these look easy enough to add.

Don’t judge, but until now I’d never heard of micro-rolling or dermaplanning. I can see why the misconception is that it will hurt. The tools look intimidating. LOL. This is pretty interesting though. I might have to consider trying this out.

I’ve never heard of micro rolling and dermaplaning! I’m going to ask the women on my Facebook feed if they’ve ever heard of it!

Have you asked them yet? I’m so curious to hear what they think because this is definitely newer when it comes to tools in the beauty space. Have any of them tried it? xx

There is nothing quite like the feeling of when your face feels fresh from exfoliation. This looks like such a great way to do that!

I totally agree that we are conditioned now to expect instant gratification. If I knew something would work quickly or over time I would use it. I am so ex ited to read this review and I am going to give the micro-rolling a try for my fine lines.

This sounds like something I would love to try it home. You can spoil yourself maybe even have a spa day and do this. I would do it all the time if it works.

One again you have introduced me to a new to me skincare line! You always do that! You find the best products! I have tried micro rolling and you are right it did not hurt at all. I sort of liked the way it felt!
