The New Way to Exfoliate your Face
DERMAPLANING GOES BEYOND A BASIC SHAVE
The procedure involves the use of a 10-inch scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair, all while rejuvenating skin cells that look and feel smoother to the touch!
HAIRLESS SKIN IS THE CLEANEST
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well, It's the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like our Multi Acid Face Peel, Serums, Aquafacial.
What is the technique?
The technique is safely administered using a specialized surgical instrument and disposable blades designed specifically for dermaplaning. Once the skin is properly prepped, the esthetician holds the skin taut, and gently scrapes the skin with the blade at a 45 degree angle. This removes both vellus hair and the top layer ofr dead skin cells revealing gorgeous, fresh new skin.
