What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation which is similar to microdermabrasion, but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. A specific blade is stroked along the skin to gently remove dead skin cells from the epidermis.
It temporarily removes the fine vellus hairs of the face which leaves the skin smooth. Like any form of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows for more effective product penetration to get optimal results.
Dermaplaning is a good alternative for clients that have couperose, sensitive or allergies that prevent them from getting microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatments.
