Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation that removes the dead skin cells from the epidermis, revealing a more radiant complexion. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for patients who have visible, broken capillaries or rosacea.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that uses a special surgical blade to gently slough away the top layer of the epidermis. After removal of dead skin cells, the skin is left smooth and vibrant. Dermaplaning is ideal for anyone interested in removal of vellous facial hair (peach fuzz), which can trap excess dirt and oil.
