Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). This treatment more effectively exfoliates than microdermabrasion. The exfoliation allows for cell renewal and also allows for better penetration of home and professional skincare products, optimizing their results. Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing appearance.”
Dermaplaning: With a sharp tool and a steady hand, Dermaplaning removes the dulling, layer of dead skin to exfoliate and get rid of fine vellus hair, otherwise known as peach fuzz. The blade is used on clean, skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin and nose.
