The traditional solution to removing dead skin or unwanted vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) has been waxing or tweezing. These methods are often painful and return less-than-satisfactory results. Dermaplaning is a more effective and long lasting solution.
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, resurfacing procedure that removes the top layer of dead epidermal cells. An aesthetician uses a sterile scalpel against the skin and gently wipes away the dead cells, leaving room for new and healthier skin cells to generate. The process is painless and works well when paired with chemical peels.
