Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that uses a small sterile blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). Removing peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe treatment for almost everybody. It is safe for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. It’s a great service for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing and more youthful. After the treatment, skin products and treatments perform more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Make-up also goes on smoother as result.
