What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “plane” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker.
Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.
