Dermaplaning removes facial hair, fine wrinkles and acne scarring leaving you with smoother skin.
What is Dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a simple and safe exfoliation technique as well as a procedure for ridding the face and neck of the fine vellus hair also known as “peach fuzz” As opposed to waxing and threading.
Dermaplaning works by Gently scraping the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and stimulating new skin cell growth. Fine hair is also removed in the process, leaving a youthful and vibrant complexion. This popular procedure does not change the histology of the hair. Hair will not grow back darker or thicker!
