This procedure is very similar to microdermabrasion, but also removes fine hairs. A blade is taken across the skin surface removing dead surface cells and fine hair.
The procedure is suitable for patients using Retin-A or a strong skin care product whose skin is too sensitive for waxing which could result in irritated abrasions.
A dermaplaning procedure takes about 30 minutes. Skin care products are then applied to enhance the treatment. Following the procedure, patients may be pink with a radiant glow.
