Over the last decade dermaplaning has become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the U.S., however it's not new to the industry. In fact, dermaplaning has been practiced since the 1970s.
What is it?
Dermaplaning is a painless physical exfoliation method using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the stratum corneum (top layer of the skin), and vellus hair (peach fuzz). Contrary to popular belief, this process does not make hair grow back thicker or darker. Since there are no chemicals involved, it’s a great option for people with sensitive skin or pregnant women who are looking for a deep exfoliation. Dermaplaning can also be combined with other treatments like facials, chemical peels, etc., to enhance results.
Other benefits include:
• Reduces appearance of acne scars and superficial pigmentation
• Removal of vellus hair can reduce the amount of oil and dirt trapped on
