What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive treatment that involves using a sterile, disposable blade to remove the uppermost layer of skin and fine hairs from the face. It acts as an exfoliating treatment to remove dead skin cells and reveal fresh, glowing skin.

It stimulates the collagen layer of the skin where new skin cells are produced, encouraging new skin growth to produce healthy, brighter skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This skin treatment is safe for all skin types and is safe for pregnant women. It is a painless, noninvasive alternative to a chemical peel. Dermaplaning can be combined with microdermabrasion or a mild chemical peel to enhance the treatment’s skin-brightening results.

Our aestheticians use a brand-new single-use sterile, disposable blade for every client to ensure our clients’ safety.

After Your Dermaplaning Treatment
