Dermaplaning is a quick, safe treatment which can improve a multitude of skin conditions. It is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea. This treatment can be performed monthly using a blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as peach fuzz or vellus hair. 

Dermaplaning also helps to remove light surface wrinkling and improves skin texture, lightens uneven hyper-pigmented skin for a more even skin tone, helps to unblock blackheads, making the pores appear smaller, helps to smooth acne scarring and helps with product absorption.

A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance.
