What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for your skin. Your healthcare provider uses a a special instrument to manually exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and removes the vellous hairs (peach fuzz) on the face. Considered a perfect pre-procedure treatment to most laser or facial treatment for improved results.
Dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections by revealing newer, undamaged skin. It can make your skin look younger and brighter by minimizing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin. 

Dermaplaning Vs. Dermabrasion Vs. Microdermabrasion: What's the difference?

Dermaplaning, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion are all skin resurfacing procedures. Each procedure uses different tools and takes off different amounts of skin. 
Dermaplaning uses a scalpel (blade) to remove skin and hair. Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure, where as Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical procedure that uses an exfoliating blade to sand away your skin to smooth it. 

Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?

You may consider dermaplaning if you have skin concerns such as dull or dry skin, peach fuzz (light, soft hair), sun damaged skin, and fine lines. 

Who is NOT a candidate?

Some people with certain skin concerns shouldn't have dermaplaning such as active acne, cold sore outbreak, eczema, psoriasis, undiagnosed skin growths, skin burns, or skin rashes.
