Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
Dermaplaning provides an effective and safe treatment that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skin care products while making the skin look and feel smoother and also reducing the appearance of acne scars. The treatment also works to remove facial hair that can trap dirt and oils. The hair will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
