This technique is safely performed using a specialized surgical instrument and disposable blades designed specifically for dermaplaning. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the skin with the blade held at a 45 degree angle. This removes both the vellus hair and the top layer of dead skin cells.
Dermaplaning is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician utilizing DermaplanePro tools and techniques.
