What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a popular skin exfoliation procedure. Dermaplaning isdone on the face where and trained aesthetics team uses a scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz (“vellus hair”)to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Dermaplaning allows for easier and more even makeup application and better absorption of your skincare products. Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types. If there are any inflammatory conditions or acne breakouts on your face, dermaplaning should be avoided. Dermaplaning can be done up to once a month.
The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother. The treatment may soften fine lines and wrinkles and reduce hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. It’s also used to treat deep acne scars.
