What is Dermalaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face; however, it is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, which are made up of "terminal" (not vellus) hairs. The nose is also avoided. Estheticians, nurses or doctors may perform the treatment, depending on state regulations.
Benefits of Dermaplaning:
- Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate the skin
- Excellent in getting rid of excess fine hairs on the face which can often accumulate dirt and oil
- Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel
