Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the top layer of skin cells from the stratum corneum along with vellus hair. It is highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. It has been utilized in medical practices for over 40 years to prepare the skin for chemical peels and laser treatments. In spas it is often the exfoliation step in antiaging facials. It is also utilized to prepare skin for light chemical peels, enzymes, nano infusion, light therapy, and other modalities. Dermaplaning increases the penetration of active ingredients in treatment room and home care products.
