Dermaplaning is a form of precise exfoliation that involves gently lifting dead skin, facial hair and peach fuzz (vellus hair) from your face. This treatment leaves skin glowing, allows skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, and makes for a smoother makeup application. Dermaplaning is an effective exfoliation alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels for sensitive skin types. Dermaplaning will not cause hair to grow back thicker because the hair follicles remain intact. With repeated treatment fine hairs can even appear finer.
