The Dermaplane treatment is a simple and safe procedure that exfoliates the epidermis while ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”). Dermaplaning, in contrast to dermabrasion with some risk of complications, carries few to no adverse effects and is quickly and comfortably performed in the office.
Our trained aesthetician uses a scalpel to shave the skin surface using light, feathering strokes. Because vellus hair on the skin often causes a buildup of dirt and oils, its removal by dermaplaning gives the skin a healthier glow. Removing epidermal skin also allows skin products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers of skin, increasing their efficacy. Likewise, a Dermaplane treatment is often used to prepare the skin for additional procedures such as facials, FotoFacial RF, spa peels, and deeper chemical peels.
Dermaplane especially benefits patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The refined, smooth result will leave you glowing!
