Dermaplaning is a very effective way to exfoliate the skin. It is an anti-aging service that exfoliates the surface of the skin by gently scraping off dead skin cells on the outer layer of the skin. By removing dead skin it also removes the vellus hair on our skin, also called "peach fuzz". 

The exfoliation is done by one of our licensed professionals, who using a sterile surgical blade to gently remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. 

This allows for better product penetration, as well as smoother and more radiant looking skin.
