Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses a specialized blade, similar to a surgical scalpel, to remove dead skin and hairs. The procedure aims to give facial skin a smooth, youthful, and radiant appearance. As well as smoothing skin and removing “peach fuzz,” dermaplaning can help with acne scars, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and wrinkles.
In this treatment, a scalpel-type blade is used to remove skin cells, hair, and other debris that may be present on the surface of the skin. The continuous exposure of the top layer of skin to UV rays, environmental toxins, and irritants means that it may begin to appear dull. Dermaplaning exfoliates the top layer of skin to reveal newer skin cells that may make a person’s skin appear smoother, brighter, softer and glowing. This treatment is not good for anyone with a sensitive skin type or a compromised skin barrier.
