Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge medical grade scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and vellus hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Dermaplaning is a favourite in the entertainment industry, specifically amongst models and actresses. Why? It eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists and aestheticians often use Dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
