Dermaplaning is the removal of dead skin layers and the soft ‘Vellus’ hair on a woman’s face. The treatment is performed by a trained aesthetician and uses a surgical blade to ‘scrape’ the surface of the skin.
Dermaplaning is one of the most effective, dermatologist backed treatments for dealing with dullness of the skin, wrinkles and breakouts. This is because dermaplaning removes the top layers of dead skin cells and trapped makeup.
It is performed by a trained esthetician (skincare specialist). This treatment is used only on the vellus hair (otherwise known as peach fuzz) on a woman’s face. The result is a smooth skin (and no, it does not make the hair grow back faster or thicker).
