Dermaplaning: More Exfoliation, Better Product Penetration, Increased Collagen Production

That’s the beauty of Dermaplaning (also called Epidermal Leveling). This simple and safe technique involves a light shaving with a small blade on the top layer of skin (epidermis). The process is painless and not only removes dead skin but also has the added benefit of removing fine vellus hair or “peach fuzz.” Dermaplaning helps with dead skin buildup, fine lines, uneven texture, and superficial pigmentation. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and absolutely glowing.

Many people with rosacea or sensitive skin are not good candidates for microdermabrasion due to the vacuum used. However, Dermaplaning can be done safely on mild forms of rosacea. The treatment is also a great go-to treatment option for those who are pregnant or nursing and cannot use topical exfoliating agents and acids that could be absorbed into the bloodstream.

$80 for one-hour treatment; $95 with pumpkin enzyme steam.
