Dermaplaning is a specialized skincare procedure performed by an Aesthetic Clinician or Physician utilizing a surgical blade to remove the outermost, accumulated layer of dead skin cells of the epidermis. Microplaning is a less invasive form of dermaplaning that can be more effective on a long-term basis for many skin conditions.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and irregular pigment, as well as reduces thickened skin texture. Dermplaning improves the vitality and youthfulness of skin.

How Dermaplaning Works
Microplaning, a less invasive form of dermaplaning, is a full facial procedure that includes cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishing/hydration of the skin. A mild chemical or enzyme, along with the blading of the skin, allows essential vitamins and nutrients to penetrate deeply into the skin. There is no residual peeling after microplaning. The skin is left with a soft, smooth, glowing appearance.
Dermaplaning, on the other hand, provides a more significant topical exfoliation with the incorporation of stronger acids and a cryo-therapy technique. The process of dermaplaning intensifies the dehydration process of the stratum corneum for a deeper peeling effect.
