Dermaplaning Downtown Los Angeles


A Los Angeles dermaplaning procedure provides an opportunity for a deep exfoliation. It peels off the outer layers of your skin and gets rid of fine hair often called “peach fuzz.” The procedure is quick and done by a trained esthetician using a scalpel to gently scrape the surface of your skin. It also removes dead skin cells.

What is Dermaplaning?

The difference between dermaplaning and shaving is the level of exfoliation because a razor can only go so far. While shaving can be done on a daily basis, dermaplaning should be done at least two weeks apart.

So, why should women consider dermaplaning? Because shaving is good for your skin! Shaving is a gentle exfoliation that is of great benefit to your skin. It removes dead cells and aids in the regeneration of your skin. Shaving removes the dead skin off of your face while exfoliation simply moves the skin around.

Dermaplaning is gentler for your face. You want to get rid of “peach fuzz” because they cause breakouts by clogging your pores. Dermaplaning makes your skin smoother so any product you apply can then penetrate deeper and encourages cellular turnover.

Many women think of shaving as something that will cause their hair to grow darker and thicker when it actually helps exfoliate and regenerate your skin cells. It’s part of why men tend to look a few years younger than their age.
