What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently shave off dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes fine vellus hair of the face leaving an exceptionally smooth surface.
As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells, allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedians, and minor outbreaks associated with congested pores.
Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin, sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Due to the contours of the face certain areas of the face such as eyelids and nose are not treatable using this method.
Dermaplaning can be combined with other treatments such as chemical peel to give your skin the ultimate glow.
