What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently remove  the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and facial hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.  Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. 

 

Who is it for?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin.. .This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals.

 

How does it work?

Are there any side effects?
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sun and therefore a broad-spectrum sunscreen is recommended reduce the risk of hyper-pigmentation
