Sometimes referred to as epidermal leveling or blading, dermaplaning is a medical skin treatment consisting of manual exfoliation of the outermost layers of the epidermis. The treatment is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade, and the skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells and impurities. During this treatment, vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz” is also removed, however, this hair will not grow back any thicker or darker than it was before treatment. Dermaplaning may be done as an alternative to a chemical peel, or as the first step of a multi-level treatment which combines dermaplaning with a chemical peel, for deeper penetration of the peel.
