What is Derma-planing?

Derma-planing is a form of exfoliation that uses a scalpel to scrape off the top layer of dead skin and fine hairs to expose smooth and brighter looking skin. By removing the layer of dead skin and peach fuzz, you’re removing what keeps oil on your skin and what gives your skin the dull appearance. Derma-planing can be done on various skin types, the only skin type it cannot be done on is those currently experiencing a breakout.

The procedure uses an inch long blade and is completely painless. After prepping and drying the skin your aesthetician will take the blade and scrape your skin in small and quick swipes to exfoliate your skin. The whole process takes about 30 minutes with results that last about 20 days and can be done every three to four weeks. You can also having derma-planing done with other procedures such as chemical peels and laser treatments to maximize the exfoliating benefits.

After derma-planing, your cleansers will be able to work deeper in your skin and helps your makeup go on easier. The benefits of investing in derma-planing include reduced signs of aging, even skin tone and clearer skin. If you want glowing and refreshed skin, pair derma-planing with your next facial or peel treatment at Advanced Aesthetics.
