Dermaplaning in Detail
Updated: Jul 21
Dermaplaning is a form of physical exfoliation performed by a licensed professional with a stainless steel scalpel. This treatment is designed to remove the vellus hair or "peach fuzz" from the epidermis. Ridding peach fuzz eliminates the dirt and oil that accumulates and becomes trapped in those fine hairs. Exfoliation, in this form, sloughs off dead skin cells that live on the outermost layer and can cause the complextion to appear dull and lifeless. This service allows for better product penetration and smoother makeup application. Dermaplaning is ideal for anyone who wishes to improve skin texture, mild scarring, or uneven skin tone. It is also safe for clients who are pregnant, lactating, or are unable to receive chemical peels. Clients with active acne should avoid dermaplaning.
