Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Our Registered Nurse uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions. Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful.
The procedure involves the use of a 10-inch scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.
