Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, anti-aging treatment that can improve the appearance of the skin from common aesthetic flaws such as an imbalanced texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores to excessive peach fuzz, and dull tone. This renowned treatment has been practiced in medical aesthetics for years and does not require needles or anesthesia resulting in zero down time for your client. This treatment utilizes a specialized blade which instantly alleviates the skin from debris, dead skin cells, and bothersome peach fuzz. Through this process of exfoliation, your patients will not only rejoice with smoother skin but can benefit from an easier, smoother make up application and more efficient absorption of skincare products. Paired with a low grade chemical peel, this service will achieve the ultimate glow for clients, ensuring they will be back for more!
