Dermaplaning 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a form of mechanical exfoliation of the skin, whereby a sterile surgical blade is used to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells of the stratum corneum and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) to produce smoother, brighter skin.  

Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin leaving it smooth, supple and vibrant.  It enhances the penetration of active ingredients of skin care products and creates a smooth canvas for makeup application for a smoother, more radiant look. It is very safe and even suitable for sensitive skin. It is great before a special event and very popular with our brides before their special day.
