Move over placenta facials (ew), the latest in squirm-inducing beauty procedures involves a scalpel. Known as derma planing, this treatment involves holding a surgical blade to the skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked along the dermis, kind of like shaving. Dead skin cells and hair are sloughed off, and when followed up with a peel, extractions, a dry-ice application, and moisturizer — the skin is left luminous, taut and smooth. “My patients are positively obsessed with the Micro Peel Facial, as it’s entirely result-driven,” Dr. Andrea Trowers says.
