A client generally books a dermaplaning facial treatment to have their skin cleansed professionally or if they are having issues with their skin.

Dermaplaning is skin rejuvenation at its finest, this 21st century treatment will  remove all dead skin from the face, body and cleans the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin also will remove any unwanted light facial hair.  Superficial exfoliation facials remove skin through a portion of the epidermal layer.

These are the “refreshing” forms of ‘lunch time facials’. It is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
