What is dermaplaning?
This procedure is a manual exfoliation treatment that removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells, leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. A surgical scalpel is utilized to gently remove the natural build up that occurs on the surface of your face. Once the exfoliation is done the patient will enjoy the benefits of having no villus hair (aka peach fuzz) on the face and better skincare product penetration and performance.
