Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation. It removes dead skin cells on the outer most layer of the skin as well as peach fuzz hair. Your skin will reflect light to give you a natural glow as well as feel and look smoother, more supple and vibrant.
A licensed aesthetician who has been professionally trained can perform the treatment. Since state laws vary - please check with your state board and professional liability insurance company before performing any new treatments.
This technique is safely performed by using a specialized sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the blade at a 45 degree angle.
It is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician utilizing the DermaplanePro tool.
