Dermaplaning

Your skin is exposed daily to environmental toxins, irritants, sun damage, and other factors, causing your skin to appear dull. Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing technique that is used to remove debris packed into the top layers of your skin, improving overall appearance.

Procedure

Dermaplaning removes the top layers of your skin. The basic concept is the same as shaving; by dragging a blade across the skin, dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris are removed.

Benefits

Dermaplaning can be done for any skin type and those with acne scars, dull or dry skin, sun-damaged skin, or fine lines and wrinkles.
