Once an aesthetic trade secret of models and the entertainment industry, dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that uses a ten gauge scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Although it sounds scary, it isn't in the hands of our experienced clinicians. The result is a smooth skin surface that allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup application.
When is Dermaplaning a Good Option?
Like all our procedures, we'll only recommend dermaplaning if it is a good fit for you. It is perfect for all skin types except those with cystic acne, raised skin tags, or moles. Dermaplaning is also a good alternative if you are pregnant or nursing and want to exfoliate but don't want to risk a chemical peel due to the possible contraindications. The procedure effectively removes excess 'peach fuzz' for better makeup application. Plus, it removes excess dirt and oils that cause clogged pores.
