Yes, you can dermaplane men.
But wait. Put the blade down.
There are a few things you should know first before dermaplaning men.
Ok, what statements about men’s skin below are true?

3. Men’s skin has a higher pH. Men 5.80; Women 5.54
4. Men’s skin is oilier
5. Men’s skin has more collagen
6. Men only have terminal hair, not vellus hair on the face.
Our rules for dermaplaning men
Do not dermaplane over coarse beard hair no matter how close he’s shaved. (We’ve tried. It was very uncomfortable for our models). I know you’ll do it anyway, just to prove me wrong. I’m ok with that – just make sure your model is, too.
You’ll need 2 forms of exfoliation. One for the lower half of the face (beard area) and dermaplaning for the upper half of the face. Options for the lower half include: microdermabrasion, scrub, enzyme, and HydraFacial.
Don’t dermaplane into the abyss of a deep expression line. Go across for safety. So your blade is never parallel to the expression line. Your angle will be off when coming up the other side increasing the risk of injury.
