Dermaplaning is a safe and effective manual exfoliation treatment. It is carried out using a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently shave the skin’s surface, removing the outermost layer as well as the peach fuzz(vellus hair). This leaves the skin visibly smoother with an instant glow and because of the removal of dead skin cells, your skincare products will penetrate better.
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.
Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
