An advanced form of facial exfoliation, which involves having the skin shaved, free-hand, with a scalpel blade. This removes the outermost layer of dead, polluted skin cells that make the skin look a little rough and uneven. It also removes the ‘peach fuzz’ vellus hair on the face, so skin is left extra-smooth – and no, this hair doesn’t feel stubbly as it grows back.
