Dermaplaning is an effective method of exfoliation through the use of a blade. During the dermaplaning procedure, your dermatologist will use a blade to shave and remove dead skin cells from your epidermis. This not only exfoliates your skin, dermaplaning also helps remove the unwanted vellus hairs from your face. This simple and safe procedure rids your skin of fine vellus hair, often known as peach fuzz. It has been practiced for years, but very few dermatologists do so. The procedure leaves your skin smooth and glowing.
An added benefit of dermaplaning is the state that the skin is left in. Removal of epidural skin allows for products to reach deeper layers of skin easier, making moisturizing and cleansing a breeze. Dermaplaning should be considered if you have:
- Rough Skin
- Dry Skin
- Superficial hyperpigmentation
- Mild acne scarring
- Fine lines or wrinkles
Each procedure lasts for roughly 4 weeks time. Schedule a dermaplaning procedure with your dermatologist here at Northshore dermatology today!
