Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, safe skin procedure that involves using a sharp tool to exfoliate the surface of your skin, while also removing small, fine hairs. This treatment removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils promoting smoother skin and allowing for deeper product penetration.  Suitable for all skin types, dermaplaning results can reduce the appearance of acne scars and diminish the look of fine lines.

It is a great “pre-treatment” to a facial and can be done as often as every 2 weeks but generally recommended every 4-6 weeks as desired.

Our licensed medical aesthetics team will work with you directly to recommend the best treatments to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives and goals. If this is your first time receiving medical aesthetics treatment with milk + honey, a consultation is required.
