Prevent: Inhibit buildup of dead skin cells which can lead to dull, lifeless congested skin

Maintain: Preserve skin after any laser or aesthetic procedure
How does it work?
Dermaplaning involves the gentle exfoliation of the skin. During this treatment, we use a specialized instrument to carefully remove the top layer of dead skin cells and any fine, peach-fuzz type hair called vellus hair revealing a smoother and more beautiful complexion. This allows us to effectively treat an array of skin concerns with no downtime.
What does Dermaplaning treat?
The Dermaplaning procedure is the perfect monthly procedure to exfoliate the skin and allow your homecare skincare products to not only penetrate better, but work better! We love to combine dermaplaning with our Laser Genesis, called our Dermagen treatment, to add an extra kick of collagen stimulation.
Dermaplaning is the perfect treatment prior to an event or anytime you want to look your best. This treatment produces immediate, no downtime results. You’ll notice that your make-up goes on smoother and looks flawless. Not only does dermaplaning even out the texture of your skin, it helps make the color appear smoother too.
“Hyperkeratosis” is a buildup of the top layer of your skin, which causes dull complexion and acne. Dermaplaning reduces the thickness of this layer, which helps correct these conditions. Dermaplaning also gets rid of the vellus hairs (affectionately known as “baby hairs” or “peach fuzz”) on the surface of your face in the process of removing dead skin cells.
Dermaplaning can help treat Rosacea, congested and aging skin. Dermaplaning is often preferred over microdermabrasion for clients with very sensitive or noticeable facial capillaries.
Dermaplaning also treats visible signs of aging. A decrease in matrix proteins like collagen and elastin are to blame for visible signs of aging and dermaplaning helps promote the production of these proteins. Hello, eternal youth!
What can I expect during treatment?
Similar to the sensation of shaving your legs, Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that feels relaxing. Your skin will be cleansed before the treatment begins. Then, our talented providers will use a sterile specialized instrument to gingerly exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells. Our staff has years of experience perfecting this intricate technique. Sit back, relax and get ready for brighter and more stunning skin.
Clients are often concerned with the hair coming back heavier and darker and this is not the case. Superficial vellus hairs will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Hair returns softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment.
When can I expect to see results?
With no anticipated downtime, you should expect to see results immediately. You will leave the office with bright and glowing skin texture to your skin. Days later you will notice how refreshed and smooth your skin will be. The dermaplaning procedure is great way to start getting the texture and complexion you’ve been dreaming about.
