Dermaplaning, sometimes calles Dermablading or DermaLeveling, was once an aesthetic trade secret in the modeling industry. Excellent as on its own or combined with hydrating facials, or chemical peels, dermaplaning gently removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells on the face. Our highly trained Medical Aesthetician manually exfoliates the treatment area using a 10 gauge scalpel. Vellus hair, also referred to as peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment. The immediate result is fresh, bright skin and a smoother look and feel to the skin. This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne.

- Smoother, brighter complexion
- Removes fine vellus facial hair or “peach fuzz”
- Enhanced penetration of skin care products
- Exfoliation alternative for those with sensitive skin
- Can be combined with other procedures such as chemical peel or Photofacial.
