Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It can be used alone, but the best results can be achieved when combined with a light chemical agent.
It removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Allowing for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
This type of treatment can be used on all skin concerns but is largely used to target pigmentation, congestion and removal of vellus hair.
Dermaplaning is an alternative that can be used to help remove build up and cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
