Dermaplaning

brunette-face-hand-SmallDermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for manually exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a blade and a delicate touch, the surface of the skin is abraded using light feathering strokes.  Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpig­mentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a great treatment for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream. 

Dermaplaning is particularly a great choice for those 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 reveals a smoother and brighter complexion.
