Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation technique that involves removing a thin, top layer of skin as well as the vellus hair (the peach fuzz) on your face. When performed by a trained professional, such as a licensed master esthetician, it’s a safe, painless, and effective technique that can help your skin regain its youthful glow. During dermaplaning, the esthetician uses a medical-grade surgical blade to gently remove the top layer of skin and vellus hair. It is considered a mechanical exfoliation technique to trigger the cell regeneration process and allows skin care products to be better absorbed. Dermaplaning is safe for most skin types.
