Dermaplaning is a process of exfoliating the skin, removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Along with removing unwanted facial hair, dermaplaning gets rid of excess oil or dirt trapped on the top layer of the skin. Unlike other techniques like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that yields more dramatic results. It rejuvenates skin from inside out and is recommended for the following conditions:
- Unwanted Facial hair
- Uneven skin tone
- Mild surface wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
How does it work?
By using a specific type of surgical scalpel, a trained aesthetician will remove the superficial layer of the skin which will stimulate our body’s natural healing process and the end result is a rejuvenated, brighter skin. This can be done simultaneously with other aesthetic procedures like chemical peels or facials.
Advantages of Dermaplaning:
- Can be done on any skin types
- No downtime
- Anyone who is not a candidate for chemical peels
- No post-care treatment required
Several treatments may be required for optimal outcome preferably 3 to 4 weeks apart.
