Dermaplaning, also known as Microplaning, is an exfoliating technique that can take the place of microdermabrasion, and can be used to enhance a traditional facial or peel.
Dermaplaning smoothes the skin, removes impurities, improves skin texture, evens pigmentation, removes fine facial hair, and leaves the skin with a refreshed glow. This procedure is performed by gently moving a scalpel over surface layers of the face for maximum exfoliation. It’s a non-invasive treatment, and can be performed on its own, or prior to other skin care treatments in order to enhance their effectiveness. The procedure is also a great treatment for the reduction of acne scarring and small lines. By skimming off peach fuzz (which traps dirt and oil) and with the extra exfoliation it provides, dermaplaning enhances the effectiveness of other skin care treatments, helps with product penetration, and allows for a more flawless make-up application.
