Dermaplaning is a wonderful way to physically exfoliate the skin on any skin type. Even the most sensitive and reactive skin can be treated this way. A scalpel is used by a trained aesthetician to gently remove the dead surface cells from the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis). Facial hair is also removed by this process leaving the skin surface soft and smooth. Dermaplaning also improves skin texture and stimulates new healthy cell growth at the surface. This procedure is recommended monthly.
