DERMAPLANING pRE-care documenT

The following pre-care advice is essential to help reduce the risk of treatment complications, to improve your comfort/healing, and to help achieve the best possible results from treatment.

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that involves the use of a scalpel blade to exfoliate the  superficial skin layers leaving the skin looking smoother and more youthful afterwards. Dead cells from the epidermis are removed as well as unwanted vellus hair (peach fuzz).  Dermaplaning may also give additional improvements such as reduction in the appearance of  fine lines & temporary fading of pigmentation in some cases. As with any exfoliation treatment  dermaplaning reduces natural skin barriers that often allow skin products to work more  effectively afterwards.
