Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. Also known as leveling the skin or blading, it involves the use of a sterile surgical blade, known as a dermatome, that gently scrapes away the top layer of problem skin. The dermatome is held against the taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.
This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple.
Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eyelids, neck, or chest. It is recommended that the procedure is done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
Dermaplaning is wonderful for exfoliating the skin and for those that have peach fuzz on their face. It removes this along with dead skin cells, resulting in the healthier looking skin. This treatment is great for someone who has sensitive skin or facial hair that does not respond to laser hair removal. Removal of this outer layer of dead skin cells and fine hair enhances the penetration and speed of your personal skin care regimen. It is great for priming the skin for a Chemical Peel.
After the treatment, your make up will go on better and your skin will be very smooth. This is a no downtime procedure.

When Mandelic Acid is applied to the skin, it chemically exfoliates the outer surface of the skin and encourages new cell turnover. This treatment is relatively non-irritating with little downtime for the patient.
