A Dermaplane treatment is an exceptional method of removing the outer layers of inert skin cells. The result is smooth and rejuvenated skin with a hair removal benefit. This procedure is not traumatic and is a non-invasive way to remove dead skin cells to renew the skin. Our certified clinicians will use a blade to stroke the skin at 45-degree angle similar to shaving. We will prepare and cleanse your skin prior to the treatment and apply moisturizer afterward.

HydraFacial is a similar treatment that removes dead skin cells and impurities. The skin is cleansed and then a peel is used. The pre & post instructions are the same for both HydraFacial and dermaplaning:

Pre-Treatment:

  • Please discontinue products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.) 24-48 hours before treatment.

  • A history of herpes or cold sores may require a course of anti-viral medication pre and post treatment.

  • Your provider will recommend appropriate products to help enhance results and/or minimize potential side effects.

Post Treatment:

  • You may experience slight redness and swelling, which should resolve within 24 hours.

  • Mineral make-up can be worn immediately following treatment.

  • Avoid heat, saunas, hot tubs and sweaty activity for 24 hours; this includes exercise of any kind.

  • Avoid products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, retinol, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.) for 24 hours after treatment.

  • You may resume your regular skin care routine 24 hours after treatment.
