Benefit of Dermaplaning:
- It’s a quick procedure of removing epidermal Skin and as result products penetrate better in to deeper layers. Also it’s great to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial.
- It is also a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing and want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use any chemicals on their skin.
