Dermaplaning, the skincare buzzword you have spotted on beauty portals and social media, is a skincare treatment that exfoliates dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a scalpel-like device. It is essentially shaving your face, but, don’t freak out it doesn’t give you cuts or leave scars.
Our trusted team at Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance, California, will simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes with a scalpel. Dermaplaning is an alternative to microdermabrasion with less downtime and more advantages. It takes a couple of minutes to do and you can move on with your day once you’ve topped your face with an SPF cream.
“This treatment can be also be used to prepare the skin for chemical peels as it allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.” -says Dr. Tahsini from Skin Works Medical Spa.
Dermaplaning is ideal for all skin tones and types with the exception of people with active cystic acne. It is a great alternative for patients who cannot opt for lasers as they are pregnant or nursing but still, want a deep exfoliation.

Additionally, it allows you to visualize your skin in 3D and determine your Truskin age. What is that? It’s an easy to understand analysis of your skin’s problems. We bring science and technology to your help. So once for all, you know if you really need to spend all that money on different products.
