There are many benefits to dermaplaning. Once clients enter their 30s, the natural cell turnover process begins to slow down, causing a layer of dead skin cells on the surface. This buildup accentuates the appearance of wrinkles, dulls the skin, and results in makeup looking cakey. Clinical research suggests that men who shave every day look younger longer.

Daily shaving removes not only hair but also dead skin cells. The removal of the skin barrier also allows for even and increased penetration of active ingredients in both treatments and homecare products, which makes dermaplaning an excellent service to enhance the effectiveness of chemical peels and laser procedures.
