DermaPlaning: A Deep Exfoliation Treatment

cross-section of skin layers DermaPlaning is the treatment that removes rough, dry and dead skin cells from the epidermis, which is the surface of your skin.

It is a non-surgical procedure which can be performed in either small, precise areas or can be applied to larger regions such as a full facial area.

The skin is exfoliated with the use of a blade that is positioned at a 45 degree angle to the surface of the skin. Dead skin cells are gently removed from the epidermis to achieve a deep exfoliation of the skin and the removal of facial “peach fuzz”.

DermaPlaning Treatment There is no required down time and virtually no side effects.

Each treatment encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells. New cells reproduce at a rate of approximately 2 to 4 weeks, so DermaPlaning treatments are scheduled between 4 to 6 weeks apart.

DermaPlaning Is Ideal for Sensitive Skin

DermaPlaning does not use the application of chemicals so it is a wonderful exfoliation treatment for sensitive skin. The freshly cleaned skin is then prepared to receive healthy hydrating lotions that aid in the reproduction of the new cells.

Combine DermaPlaning with Other Facial Treatments for Advanced Results
