Dermaplaning is a manual form of exfoliation that consists of scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. In addition, the removal of vellus “peach fuzz” hair on the face improves skin care product penetration and performance. This treatment is appropriate for all skin types and can be combined with other treatments.
Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, our nurse practitioner simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This procedure is safe for pregnant and nursing women who want a deep exfoliation.
Dermaplaning is the first treatment choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles. Skin will look and feel healthier when this is removed. This treatment is also used to prime skin for a chemical peel.
Duration: Procedure takes 30 minutes.
