What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that is minimally invasive for your skin. Our esthetician uses a special instrument to safely shave away the top layers of your skin.
Dermaplaning is a great treatment to reduce the appearance of acne scars or other textural skin issues by unmasking fresh new skin below. Although your skin looks younger; dermaplaning does not stop the aging process. This procedure can also be used to remove the peach fuzz that is often hard to remove with lasers.
Dermaplaning vs. microdermabrasion
Dermaplaning, and microdermabrasion are both considered skin resurfacing procedures. Each procedure uses different tools and removes skin differently. Dermaplaning uses a scalpel or razor to remove surface skin. Microdermabrasion uses an exfoliating tip that smooths and sands your skin unveiling fresh new skin underneath.
