Dermaplaning: For Skin that is Baby Soft

What does your skin care regime look like–feel like? When you touch your face, does it seem like your skin is as soft as a baby’s? If it doesn’t or if you are in need of a change, you should consider dermaplaning. This form of skin care is part of Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s spa services in Pittsburgh, PA, with results that will leave you, your friends, family, and loved ones in awe.


What is Dermaplaning?   


Dermaplaning uses a ten-gauge scalpel to remove the top layer of dead skin cells from your face, neck, and decollete skin area. It also is very effective against unwanted vellus hairs. This method of exfoliation will leave you with a brighter and smoother complexion.

Dermaplaning should not to be confused with microdermabrasion, and sometimes can be referred to as simply, “dermabrasion”.


What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?



  • Exfoliation
    As most of you know, exfoliation is a means to keep your skin both healthy and smooth. Get rid of those dead skin cells and reveal the glow underneath! Dermaplaning will help you achieve this, leaving your skin silky and refreshed.   

  • Vellus Hairs
    Also known as “peach fuzz” or “camel chin”, these tiny hairs layer our face in droves. They can effect your image and the feel of your skin.
