What's all the Fuzz about... Derma-planing?
What is derma-planing?
Derma-planing is performed by a licensed and trained skin care professional using a medical grade scalpel to exfoliate the top layer of your skin.
The primary goal of derma-planing is a deep exfoliation and added bonus of peach fuzz (vellus hair) removal. This leaves your skin visibly smoother and brighter. Another added bonus your skincare products will also perform more effectively!
What can you expect after a derma-planing treatment?
skin will look younger & smoother
skin will appear brighter & take on a special glow after treatment

Derma-planing increases the effectiveness of your skincare products
How long does derma-planing results last?
this treatment removes up to 3 weeks of dead skin cells that have accumulated, the results can last up to 4 weeks. Having a daily skincare regimen for maintenance can prolong the results for up to 6 months!
Although the primary goal of derma-planing is exfoliation the removal of peach fuzz (vellus hair) is just a bonus. It is important to note that a home facial razor will only “shave” the noticeable facial hair and are designed with safety bumpers to keep your skin safe.
