WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
The most sought after facial treatment!
Dermaplaning is an exfoliative treatment performed using a scalpel by removing the outermost layers of the skin. This process is painless and very safe but is only recommended for treatment of the face. 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 goes back as far as Cleopatra, and has been used for decades in the entertainment industry for ultimate smooth skin for their make up to look flawless under harsh camera lighting
Some of the benefits include:
- Removes surface dead/keratinised skin cells and make up that collects on the hair
