Dermaplaning was once an aesthetic trade secret in the modeling industry, but has since become one of the most popular skincare treatments on the market. Excellent on its own or combined with hydrating facials, chemical peels or rejuvenating laser treatments, dermaplaning gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells on the face. A highly trained Medical Aesthetician or Physician’s Assistant will manually exfoliate the treatment area using a 10-gauge scalpel. Vellus hair, also referred to as peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment. The immediate result is fresh, bright skin revealed and a smoother look and feel. In addition, removing dead skin cells and vellus hair creates a smooth foundation for cosmetic application and skincare products will better penetrate the skin.
This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne. This treatment is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.
