Dermaplaning uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells. It also effectively removes the very fine (peach fuzz) hair that is commonly found on the face. This treatment is great for those people who want the advantages commonly seen with professional exfoliation, but have skin that is too sensitive for the suction associated with traditional microdermabrasion.
