Dermaplaning Blades

#14 Blade Shape          #10 Blade Shape

The most popular blade shape is the #14, followed by the #10.  We have some clients who use both and others who only use one or the other.
Both are available in stainless steel and carbon steel;  in a surgical environment, only stainless steel blades can be used when the establishment's protocol is for them to be included within an autoclavable instrument set.  In dermaplaning, the difference is negligible; stainless steel blades are slightly blunter, but stay sharper longer, carbon steel is sharper, but blunts more quickly - it's really just a matter of personal preference.  Carbon steel blades are marginally less expensive.
Both #14 and #10 blades use the separate #3 handle.

#3 Standard Handle

There are also disposable versions of both blade shape, in carbon steel only (since they would never be autoclaved), complete with a plastic handle.

A few, but not many, of our Aesthetician customers use the #16 blade - there's no right or wrong, it's just a matter of individual technique, how you were trained, and whatever works for you!
We do recommend the use of a forceps for applying the blades to the handle (several to choose from - Kelly Forceps are the most popular), and the blade removal unit (GM5525/1) for safe extraction and disposal.

One last note about the blades; we only sell sterile blades - an important point if you are comparing prices.
