About Us

DERMAFLASH represents a new paradigm in beauty. This first-in-class patented device was inspired by the in-spa facial treatment “dermaplaning”. DERMAFLASH uses a subtle sonic vibration and a proprietary Edge to simultaneously remove the oldest layer of dead skin cells and built-up debris while painlessly sweeping away unwanted vellus hair.

This revolutionary tool offers immediate results with no downtime. Smooth, radiant, camera-ready skin is instantly revealed. DERMAFLASH has quickly become the go-to tool for celebrities and their makeup artists because, like a magic wand, it allows skin care to do its job more effectively and creates a flawless canvas for makeup.
