Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that gently exfoliates the epidermis and rids the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with instant results, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country.
Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. Excess facial hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils, so removing the hair gives patients healthier looking skin with a smooth canvas for skin care and makeup products.
We often recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for medical procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It is also used to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or cleansing facials.
