Dermaplaning is a method of skin rejuvenation that removes the vellus (tiny translucent blonde) hairs and the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and refreshed. This enhances the absorption of products and promotes a youthful glow.
It is safely performed by a trained professional esthetician using a sterile surgical blade. The blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along while the esthetician holds the skin taught. Hair does not grow back faster or thicker. Not for all skin types, so book a consultation to find out if this procedure is for you!
