Dermaplaning used to be an aesthetic trade secret in the modeling industry. Exceptional as an individual treatment or combined with Hydrating Facials, Chemical Peels or Rejuvenating Laser Treatments, Dermaplaning gently removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells on the face. A highly trained Medical Aesthetician or Physician’s Assistant will manually exfoliate the treatment area with a 10-gauge scalpel. Vellus hair, also known peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment. The immediate result is fresh, bright skin revealed and a smoother look and feel to the skin. This treatment is approved for all skin types, except individuals who suffer from acne. This treatment is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.
