Dermaplaning is the manual exfoliation procedure using a 10-guage scalpel held at a 45° angle and following along the plane of the skin to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). The process leaves your face smooth and radiant.

Dermaplane is painless and non-invasive, and great for people with all types of skin except for those with cystic acne. Cosmetic dermatologists often dermaplane to help prepare the skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser .

Not only will this treatment give your skin the most beautiful glow and allow your makeup to glide on effortlessly, it’s also an amazing add-on to other services like peels.
