Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that involves gently skimming the face with a medical-grade scalpel to remove the very top layer of skin. This treatment removes both dead skin cells and the fine vellus hairs that are known as peach fuzz, leaving the surface of the face ultra-smooth.
By stimulating the development of new skin cells, this type of exfoliation helps new skin rise to the surface. It leaves patients with a more youthful and dewy face, but without any excessive downtime or pain.
The skin tone is evened out and hyperpigmentation — the darker spots that can appear on the skin — eases. Overall, the skin takes on a fresher and brighter appearance. Rough spots on the surface of the skin are smoothed over, and the patient’s complexion is brightened.
