What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, painless and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel blade to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair. We love to recommend this procedure as an “add on” during a HydraFacial MD® or chemical peel for optimal product absorption and all around more softening treatment.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
We recommend Dermaplaning for nearly every skin type. It is safe for the most sensitive skin types and pregnant woman as well. The physical exfoliation triggers the cell turnover process and allows product to better penetrate the skin. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs will not grow back thicker or darker. Our patients rave about how nicely their products and makeup lay on the skin after Dermaplaning. Optimal maintenance is to receive this treatment monthly to sustain the smoother look and feel. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in brighter and healthier skin.
This is one of our most requested treatments.
