Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. An aesthetician uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions. Expect to see instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles & dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair. After dermaplaning, skin care products & treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well.
