Making the Most of Your Leaf Dermaplaner Refills

Leaf Dermaplaner is the first zero-waste skincare tool designed for facial exfoliation and peach fuzz removal. Engineered with sustainability in mind, Dermaplaner utilizes two-part steel refills to create a plastic-free solution for at-home dermaplaning. 

Unlike the common plastic and metal dermaplaning refill heads on the market, each Leaf Dermaplaner refill consists of a scalloped blade-guard and a standard single-edge safety razor blade. When combined, these two components offer maximum effectiveness while minimizing environmental impact. With this unique refill solution, we’ve responded to some of our most asked questions regarding Leaf Dermaplaner Refills.

How Often Should I Refill My Leaf Dermaplaner?

During the dermaplaning process, the dermaplaner refill may accumulate debris, reducing its ability to effectively exfoliate and remove vellus hair.

As an exfoliation tool, your dermaplaner can accumulate dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Leaving your dermaplaner in this state can harbor dirt and bacteria.

For optimal results and to prevent the spread of dirt or bacteria, we recommend changing your Leaf Dermaplaner Refill—both the blade-guard and blade—every month or after every three uses, or whichever comes first. If you’re unsure how to do so, we have a video that lays out the steps.

How Can I Prolong the Life of My Dermaplaner Refill?

To prolong the life of your dermaplaning blades and blade-guards, regular cleaning with rubbing alcohol is key between dermaplaning sessions. We also recommend cleaning your Leaf Dermaplaner between uses to ensure you have a fresh and sanitized tool for your next dermaplaning routine.

Your facial skin is sensitive, and maintaining cleanliness is essential to prevent irritation or infection. Keeping both your dermaplaner and dermaplaner refill sanitized ensures a safe and effective dermaplaning experience.

How Do I Dispose of My Dermaplaner Refills?

Once your dermaplaner refill reaches the end of its lifespan, it's time to recycle it. Both the blade-guard and blade are recyclable. Use Leaf Shave’s Blade Recycling Tin or upcycle an old metal container, such as a mint tin, to store your used refills. 

When it’s full, recycle the tin and its contents locally as scrap metal. Take a look at our Blade Recycling Instructions and take advantage of Leaf Shave's recycling support program.

Zero-waste dermaplaning is achievable and easy with Leaf Dermaplaner Refills. By incorporating sustainable practices into your skincare routine, you can enjoy smooth, radiant skin while minimizing your environmental footprint.
