Dermaplaning is similar to microdermabrasion procedures in that it removes your dead skin cells, helps to gradually reducse hyperpifmentation and helps with the appearance of wrinkles. The difference being that microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells using an exfoliating technique, also uses slight suction to help unclog pores.
Minus the suction aspect, dermaplaning also removes the vellus hair also known as “peach fuzz”. Making this treatment extra popular with models and actresses in that it helps their make up go on flawlessly. The removal of you vellus hair does not upset the hair cycle, the root or type of hair. Therefore, vellus hair will grow back as vellus hair.
We also offer combination packages. The removal of the dead skin cells will leave your skin fresh and make other treatments work even better. Therefore, our amazing Obagi Skin Peels, Pro-Facial and LED Therapy give outstanding results when combined with dermaplaning.
