Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of gently removing the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion, it also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz leaving the surface very smooth.
Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz.
Many people opt for a combination Dermaplaning and Peel service to optimize treatment outcome and achieve a smoother and more radiant complexion. While Dermaplaning and Peels are effective apart, they work synergistically together. Dermaplaning helps to remove the outer layers of the skin, making the Peel solution far more effective. At JW Aestehtics we offer Dermaplaning with or without a Peel.
