How To Remove Facial Hair with Dermaflash | Review + Demo

Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device Review Demo

Unwanted facial hair - if you don't have it, count yourself very lucky! Peach fuzz, chin hair, and a moustache are what I've been dealing with for years, but I was always afraid to tackle my insecurity so I just let the hair be (it helps that they become less visible during summer from lightening in the sun and makeup does wonders too). So when the opportunity arose to try the Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device*, I saw it as a sign that it was finally time... to shave my face! I thought it would be helpful to document my experience, so I walk you step by step through the shaving process, and it isn't as scary as you would think!

Think of the Dermaflash as a super safe razor and exfoliator for your face. It doesn't have a sharp, straight-cut blade, but instead has little indents that paired with vibration help effectively remove hair, so it's basically impossible to cut yourself (which was why I hesitated to try regular razors for so long). Since this device is not a laser treatment, your hair will grow back (although it shouldn't come back any thicker or darker), so it's important to upkeep your facial shaving once weekly. The starting kit includes the Dermaflash wand, a charging base, a power supply cord, 6 disposable edges, a prep cleaser, a soothe hydrator as well as an owner's manual and quick start guide.

Prior to first use, you will want to charge your Dermaflash for a minimum of five hours. Make sure there is no edge (or blade) attached to it when doing so, or else it won't work. To insert an edge, align your wand at the tip of the cartridge with one of the razors and slide from bottom to top, as demonstrated in the video below. You will hear it click into place. To remove, do the same thing in the opposite direction. Dermaflash recommends only using each edge once, so you will want to dispose of them afterwards by recycling them. The hummingbird power button is very easy to use, simply hold it for two seconds to turn on and off. Once started, you will hear a light vibration sound.

This 3-step system is very straightforward:

- Step 1: Cleanse your face with the Prep Cleanser
- Step 2: Shave you face with the Dermaflash device
- Step 3: Moisturize with the Soothe Hydrator

Since the edges are single use, you will have to purchase more when you run out. The Replenishment Essentials Kit, which includes six edges as well as a Prep Cleanser and Soothe Hydrator, can be bought separately.

Getting the hang of the best way to position the wand on the different areas of your face will take a bit of practice, but the quick start guide breaks it down quite easily. In small strokes, start from your ears and make your way down your cheeks toward your nose. You will want to position the wand perpendicularly, or better yet keep the blue silicone pad that you see on either side of the wand pressed against your face for optimal results. Then move on to your chin and make your way slightly down your neck where needed, and then down your upper lip to tame the moustache (if you have one)! Finally, go down your forehead, from top to bottom, making sure to avoid your eyebrows.

As you can see below, my peach fuzz along the bottom half of my cheeks and hair on my upper lip were effectively removed, leaving my skin feeling soft to the touch. I do not have a trace of makeup on in these unedited pictures (hence the scary up close shots - sorry!) but I wanted to show you how much of a difference it makes on my bare skin.

Dermaflash Facial Exfoliating Device Before After

As I show you at the end of my demo video, my makeup now applies more flawlessly than ever before as my facial hair is no longer peaking through. This device truly works!



The Dermaflash Exfoliating Device is not cheap by any means retailing for US$180 or C$236, and I've seen many people who opt for the plain razor to remove their unwanted facial hair. I personally was always afraid to do so, and I like that there is this safe alternative. I will definitely be purchasing more replacement edges once I run out of my initial six week supply!

  1. That is amazing! Facial hair is such a bother, but shaving is worse, and don't get me started on waxing. This seems pretty great, though.

  18. Facial hair! That is one of the most frustrating things to me. I would love to try this. I like that it is safer than a razor.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I guess I'm in the lucky group for this one! The only thing I worry about on my face is complexion and eyebrows.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I need this!! I hate finding hair on my face. I usually go and have it waxed but ouch!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This looks so much better than a regular razor. I don't have much trouble with facial hair, but I've read that shaving ones face can help your skin look better...younger. That to me is worth giving it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sounds like a great product. I can see from the photos that it really works well too. That's great to see!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've never shave my facial hair before. So glad to hear that this product works for you. I want to give it a try but the price is the issue.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am also really interested to know how the hair grows back. I wonder if it will grow back thicker like with shaving?

    ReplyDelete
  25. It is sad that my kids said that I have a few hairs above my lip. I told them that I am not supposed to shave it off. I don't need it growing in thicker.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I never knew that facial hair existed on my face. It don't bother me at all.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have never shaved my facial hair before.. Sounds like a good device, I think my husband needs this.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is something I need to look into! I was blessed with clear skin, but cursed with a mustache and chin hair for days, UGH!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've never heard of this before. Definitely sounds like a handy little tool!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The price tag is a bit steep, but it might be worth the investment. I wonder if it performs better than the small razor type products many people use.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This sounds like an awesome product! I definitely have to check this one out. I haven't heard of this brand before! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like such a cool device! I will probably get this device gifted to me - I often receive razors as a gift - maybe people are trying to tell me something - mustaches are reserved just for men

    ReplyDelete
  33. Some things are worth the price. This is definitely one of those things. I'd love to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have to say that I disagree with the girls on one thing: if you have facial hair and it doesn't bother you, get on with your bad self. Removing facial hair isn't mandatory. For me, it was something I wanted but didn't think was possible.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Tha is interesting! At least there is an option now other than waxing. So good to know about this product.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nobody told me this was part of being a woman when I was a kid. Right now I don't need to full on shave but I do aggressively pluck my chin hairs and wax my lip.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I wish I could get away with this. I'm luckier than most guys in that I have to shave only other day.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You were joking when you said it was pricey. However, I can see how it would be worth the cost for some people. Thank you for the detailed review and demostration.
