Dermaplaning – More Info

This amazing treatment is the talk of the town right now.  Dermaplaning is a favourite in the entertainment industry, specifically among celebrities because it eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. “Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the peach fuzz hair, leaving the surface of the skin super smooth. Dermaplaning allows for better penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. You are going to love it!

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a special tool to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. OMG sounds scary, hey? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in the right hands.

What is dermaplaning?

Our SE Calgary Spa now offers this amazing service!  Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a specialized instrument used to scrape away built up dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair. It is a comfortable, relaxing procedure that can be combined with other facial services to further improve results.

Active ingredients in skin care products can penetrate into the deeper layers resulting in healthier skin. Our clients in SE Calgary already LOVE it!
