Classic beauties like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor maintained their smooth, flawless looks with a manual exfoliation technique known as Dermaplaning. The age-old practice is still used today and New York’s finest medical spa, Aesthetic Artistry, has the expertise and experience to perform this delicate treatment with ease.

What is dermaplaning?

Unlike laser hair removal or waxing, Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation and facial hair remover, which gives the skin a smoother appearance overall. Used worldwide, Dermaplaning renews and rejuvenates the layers of skin, removing dead skin on the face. Dermaplaning is a superior manual exfoliation, free of chemicals and crystals.

HOW DOES dermaplaning WORK?

During the Dermaplane Facial, our NYC-based aestheticians use a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz), the very fine hair the body grows to stay warm. Dermaplaning effectively removes vellus hair, which eventually grows back the same color and texture. Unlike other methods of hair removal like tweezing, waxing or shaving, the density and hair color remain the same

This method effectively removes the outer layers of skin to reveal underlying smooth skin. More gentle than other exfoliation methods, Dermaplaning does not cause any trauma to the skin and can be performed several times throughout the year for better results.
