Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous hair. It’s great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients in treatment. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment to prepare for high profile occasions. Dermaplaning is physical/mechanical exfoliation using a sterile, surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle for the removal of keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine vellus hair.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Once the vellus hair is removed will it grow back thicker?
