Today I would like to talk to you about one of the greatest procedures ever invented!(well at least I think so!)”Dermaplaning”.

A lot of people don’t even know about it.It is a simple and safe way to remove the vellus hair (peach fuzz) from your entire face. It is a procedure that should only be done by a properly trained Medical Esthetician in a medical office or spa.

Unlike threading , waxing or shaving this procedure is done with a medical blade and gently removes the hair from your face without manipulating the hair follicle.

The purpose is to gently exfoliate the epidermis non -chemically and also safe for pregnant women as well. This procedure can also be performed on men but only on the upper cheekbones and forehead. The removal of dead skin cells ,dirt,oil and impurities are optimal with added benefit of removing unwanted hair.

The superficial vellus hair (as it is called in the Esthetic world) will not grow back any thicker or faster leaving you with a clean slate as I put it.

Great as a pre -treatment before peels and allows product penetration of skin care products.

Makeup goes on effortlessly, allowing your skin to “breathe” giving you that healthy glow which we are all striving for.

If you would like to experience this amazing procedure please come visit me at KO’AN Medical Spa Santa Monica. You can make an appointment by calling me Lisa Arnold at (310)315-3022. Looking forward to seeing you!
