Dermaplaning

Safe and Effective

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, safe, minimal-downtime skin treatment that exfoliates the surface of your skin while also removing small, fine hairs. Dermaplaning yields deeper product penetration, promotes smoother skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars, and diminishes the look of fine lines.

This technique is safely performed using a specialized surgical instrument and disposable blades designed specifically for dermaplaning. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the skin with the blade held at a 45-degree angle. This removes both the vellus hair and the top layer of dead skin cells.
