Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a “butter blade” and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
This is a great treatment for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want exfoliation. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.
