Dead skin cells can build up on the face over time, clogging pores and resulting in a dull complexion. Dermaplaning is the process of using a surgical-grade scalpel to remove hair and dead skin cells from the face. This exposes the new skin cells underneath, resulting in a fresh-looking face. The procedure is a popular non-invasive treatment choice as it leaves a fresh glow to the face, making it the perfect way to prepare for a big event.


1. Who Can Perform Dermaplaning?

Although there are dermaplaning kits available for home use, medical professionals do not recommend this method, as incorrect use by an untrained person can damage the hair follicles or scratch the skin. It is best to see a qualified dermaplaning professional who can perform the treatment correctly, protecting the delicate skin on your face. A qualified practitioner can deliver safe and effective treatment.
