Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective manual exfoliation technique.

A surgical grade scalpel is used to gently scrape the surface of the epidermis and lift away unwanted dead cells, debris and oils and provides a similar result to microdermabrasion.

It has the benefits of allowing for better product penetration and make-up application as well as stimulating collagen and elastin too. 

Dermaplaning can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a pre-treatment to enzyme peels, microneedling or other ablative or electrical treatments.
