Dermaplaning is an effective way of removing unwanted facial hair without waxing or depilatories while gently exfoliating the superficial layers of the skin. This is a great alternative for patients using retinoid products or for people with sensitive skin. Dermaplaning is an exfoliative treatment performed using a scalpel to “shave” away the outermost layers of the skin. This process is painless and very safe but is only recommended for treatment of the face (not the nose, neck or decollete). Not only will you achieve smoother, brighter skin but this also helps remove peach fuzz. Despite popular belief, the hair does not grow back thicker. Dermaplaning should always be performed by a medical professional.
