In other words, dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that carefully removes the top layers of the skin. It aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful & radiant.
It is safe with little risk of side effects when performed by a medical esthetician. This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient.
The procedure stimulates skin to promote cell turnover while removing imperfections, for softer, healthier skin with a brighter-looking appearance. It also targets the cell regeneration process to improve the appearance of acne scarring, uneven skin texture, fine lines & wrinkles, hyperpigmentation & dullness. The effect is glowing skin with fewer imperfections a smoother appearance, & a healthier look.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type & anyone with acne scars, dull skin, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, or fine wrinkles.
