Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. It involves the use of a sterile surgical blade that gently scrapes away the top layer of skin. The blade is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.
This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple.
Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and it is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
Dermaplaning is great for exfoliating the skin and for getting rid of the peach fuzz on the face. It removes this along with dead skin cells, resulting in healthier looking skin. This treatment is great for someone who has sensitive skin or facial hair that does not respond to laser hair removal. Removal of this outer layer of dead skin cells and fine hair enhances the penetration and speed of your personal skin care regimen. It is great for priming the skin for a Chemical Peel.
After the treatment, your make up will go on better and your skin will be left feeling smooth. There is zero downtime after a dermaplane treatment.
