Dermaplaning involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface. This is done by using a surgical scalpel, with care, and scraping it in a very particular fashion over the face and other necessary areas. Rani gives great attention to detail during this service to ensure all of the vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin is eliminated.
This process allows for skin care procedures, and products to penetrate into the skin and have a better effect since the products aren't having to pass through dead, unhealthy skin. Dermaplaning even improves the effects of makeup, providing a smooth surface for cosmetics to apply to.
Cosmetic dermatologists use Dermaplaning to prepare the skin for for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
Does it hurt? NO! It can be compared to running a piece of plastic, such as a credit card, over your face in a fanning motion. Just don't move! ; )
