This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin. After a series of treatments, your complexion can appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color.
The microdermabrasion that an Aesthetician performs differs from the one that you can do at home with a kit. An Aesthetician’s treatment goes deeper into the skin. Still, the procedure is safe for all skin colors.
See more youthful skin without having downtime! Microdermabrasion can help correct the following concerns:
- Dull complexion.
- Uneven skin tone or texture.
- Age spots.
- Dark spots that can appear when acne starts to clear.
There are certain conditions that may require postponement of your Microdermabrasion Treatment. If any of these conditions exist, please contact us before your treatment time:
-Inflamed acne lesions
-Open cuts of scratches on the treatment area
-Active cold sores on the lips or face
-Use of Accutane within the last 12 months
-Facial surgery, including facelift or eyelid surgery within the past 3 months
The following information is for clients to be aware of prior to the date of treatment:
-Your treatment time is scheduled for about 30-45 minutes
-Remove your contact lenses
-Follow the post-procedure regimen that was prescribed for you
-Discontinue use of exfoliating products such as Retin A, Retinol or Salicylic acids for 5 days prior

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool at a forty-five degree angle and stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove “peach fuzz”, as well as dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is performed as a stand alone treatment or prior to other skincare treatments to enhance their effectiveness. This treatment does not require downtime and will effectively smooth acne scars and give you the smoothest possible skin.
What are the benefits of getting Dermaplaning done?
- Promotes smoother skin
- Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil.
- Dermaplaning enhances the effectiveness of other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and facials by providing deeper product penetration.
- Reduces recent acne scars
- Reduces fine lines
- Produces immediate results with no downtime
Is a dermaplaning a safe procedure?
When performed by a well trained professional, dermaplaning is very safe.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. This is physiologically impossible. There are two types of hair that grow on your body. Vellus hair, which when cut or removed will grow back the same size and shape, therefore, the main structure of vellus hair does not change and is not altered by dermaplanning. Terminal hair however, is physiologically coarse. When this hair type is cut it will always grow back coarse. Dermaplaning is designed to treat the vellus hair which is located on the face. Once vellus hair is cut it will maintain a blunt edge and this blunt edge will not physiologically alter the hair itself.
What areas can be treated?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face only.
How often is the procedure performed?
Dermplaning is usually performed every three-four weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two-three weeks worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal thirty day rejuvenation cycle before the treatment is done again.
Does the skin peel from dermaplaning?
Occasionally the skin will peel after a dermaplaning treatment. If the procedure is done in two week intervals, the growth cycle of your hair may not be complete; therefore you are treating skin unnecessarily. This may cause peeling to occur.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
All skin types may benefit from dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is not recommended if you have acne or an excessive production of sebaceous gland oil. (Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair). If the hair is removed, the oils may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts.
