Dermaplaning is a simple nonsurgical exfoliating procedure meant to get rid of fine hairs, or vellous hairs, on the face without using any chemicals and without the harsh effects of the more well-known procedure of dermabrasion. The body’s vellous hairs pick up dirt and oil, and by removing this hair, your skin will be left with a smoother, glowing appearance.
During the treatment, your specialist uses a scalpel in the manner of a razor, gently stroking away dead or damaged skin and fine hairs, resulting in a deep exfoliation. This exfoliation can help reduce the look of wrinkles and acne scars, and generally produces fresher-looking, vibrant skin. You may wish to repeat this procedure every four weeks, following the body’s natural skin cycle, and removing the past month of built-up dead skin cells.
