What is it?
Dermaplaning is non-invasive physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently remove the skins surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair- also known as peach fuzz.
What does it do?
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate your 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. Microdermabrasion, which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel. The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area. This is a maintenance treatment that is usually performed every three to four weeks.
