Reveal a brighter, smoother complexion by removing dead skin cells with dermaplaning treatments. Not only does dermaplaning exfoliate the skin, it can also take off unwanted facial hair, so you have glowing skin free of peach fuzz. Even better, dermaplaning treatments can prepare the skin for other skin rejuvenation treatments.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin’s top layer by gently scraping dead skin cells using a special surgical blade. The sensation is very similar to that felt when shaving your legs. The treatment begins with our aesthetician cleaning and thoroughly drying your skin. Then, while pulling the skin tight, she holds the blade at an angle and uses short, swift strokes to scrape off the dead cells and peach fuzz. The treatment promotes skin cell renewal and a series of treatment sessions will enhance results.
Using professional grade skincare products at home after dermaplaning treatments can also nourish your skin. Dermaplaning is a natural alternative for women who want to avoid using harsh chemicals for skin exfoliation.

DERMAPLANING OR MICRODERMABRASION?
Both of these treatments exfoliate the skin using different techniques. A PowerPeel® microdermabrasion gently sprays the skin with micro-crystals that are then immediately vacuumed along with skin cells loosened by the crystals. Patients also have the option of adding dermaplaning to HydraFacial® MD or microneedling treatments for an additional $25.
WILL FACIAL HAIR REMOVED BY DERMAPLANING GROW BACK DARKER?
That’s a common concern we hear from patients at our med spa. It’s actually an old wives’ tale that peach fuzz becomes darker once its removed. It grows back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before dermaplaning.
CAN I DO THIS MYSELF AT HOME?
Even though the sensation resembles that of shaving your legs, a dermaplaning treatment goes beyond shaving. The specialized blade used by our aestheticians is extremely sharp, and you should only have a licensed specialist perform this treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
After a dermaplaning treatment, your skin immediately will look more radiant with enhanced skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, making your skin feel softer than ever before.
