Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique involving scraping off the very top layer of skin by scraping it off with a medical-grade scalpel. The shaving process removes dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, referred to as “peach fuzz.”. The process, which stimulates cells to grow, exfoliates the skin, promoting new skin growth. Patients are left with a fresh, young look, without harsh chemicals, downtime, or pain.
Along with removing dead skin cells, this treatment encourages skin regeneration. During the process, the skin tone is evened out and hyperpigmentation, the darker skin spots, diminishes. The skin appears healthier and brighter overall. A patient’s complexion is brightened by smoothing over rough spots on the skin.
