What is Dermaplaning?
One of our most in-demand treatments, dermaplaning is a non-surgical, non-invasive, highly-effective physical exfoliation procedure. Using a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) is removed. (Vellus hairs on the face trap dirt and oil, which can cause acne). The treatment stimulates the generation of new skin cells, leaving skin more smooth and youthful in appearance. As well, the need for makeup is reduced, and when makeup is applied, it goes on much smoother.
Benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Removes surface debris
- Increases absorption of topical products
- Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Primes skin for chemical peel (an optional treatment)
- Creates a healthier, radiant appearance
Dermaplaning is also included in the micropeel, a three-step procedure combining dermaplaning, a chemical peel solution, and a vitamin-C firming mask.
