Dermaplaning at Uplifted Rx med spa in Manhattan, New York
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that removes the topmost layer of the skin. This topmost layer or “peach fuzz” can trap dirt and oil and leave the skin looking dull. Benefits of dermaplaning include, improvement of skin elasticity and texture, increased ability for skin to absorb products, minimize the appearance of pores, reduced hyperpigmentation, and softens the appearance of fine lines. Patients will have a “glowy” complexion following a dermaplaning treatment. Dermaplaning can be done every 4-6 weeks and is suitable as a stand-alone treatment or can be done prior to a chemical peel (consultation required).
