Dermaplaning is a procedure in which a blade is used to safely exfoliate the skin and remove “peach fuzz,” leaving your skin looking brighter and softer. You’ll notice better absorption of topical products and smoother makeup application. We’ll top you off with a little LED light therapy at the end to calm any inflammation from the procedure.
