Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An aesthetician grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis.
This treatment temporarily removes the peachfuzz hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows skincare products to be more effective.
Suitable in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, couperose (tiny vessels near the surface of the skin), and congested pores.
Dermaplaning is also wonderful when paired with relaxing facials, non toxic peels and LED light therapy.
