This is an innovative treatment which improves the texture and quality of the skin. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique that gently removes vellus hair and dead skin cells, giving skin an instantly smoother, brighter look as well as improving absorption of products into the skin. The skin responds to dermaplaning by regulating growth factors that stimulate collagen. Over time, the boost in collagen production leaves skin brighter, plumper and more youthful looking.
Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all of the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
