Treatment Plan Combining Modalities

You can include Dermaplaning as your first level of skin exfoliating treatment, then proceed with other more penetrative treatments.  From there, you can include Dermaplaning in your maintenance plan.  It’s important when utilizing Dermaplaning as a form of face exfoliation, when combining modalities, not to over-exfoliate.
