Dermaplaning Edmonton

How does it work? 

The technician gently grazes a medical-grade scalpel edge over the surface of the skin. This process delivers a fine shave that removes the dull surface skin and vellus facial hair.  

What will it do for my skin? 

The process brightens the complexion, evens skin tone, and leaves the skin feeling supple and smooth.  


Can clients with beards or coarse hair growth get a dérmaPLANE treatment ?  

men dermaplaning edmonton

In our professional opinion, dérmaPLANE is not recommended as a means of hair removal for clients with bearded (dense/coarse) hair growth pattern, or as treatment for the skin underlying.  


Can I have a dérmaPLANE treatment if I am pregnant?  

dermaplaning edmonton

Yes. The service is considered to be superficial and therefore does not compromise the pregnancy or health of the mother’s skin.

There are typically no side effects from the procedure.


Does it get rid of dark spots?  

dark spots dermaplaning edmonton

Yes. This process is most effective when combined with the AHA BOOST or Retinol / Vit C BOOST. The dérmaPLANE process will clear the surface of the skin allowing for deeper penetration of the acid BOOST and target specific conditions.  


Can it treat acne? 

acne and dermaplaning edmonton

In our professional opinion, we do not recommend dérmaPLANE as a primary means of treating acne. The risk outweighs the potential benefit when compared to other more effective methods of acne treatment. 


When will I notice my results? 

The results of dérmaPLANE are seen immediately following the procedure. The goal is to leave the skin feeling softer and looking radiant. Contrast is most evident when comparing the appearance before and after service, in those who have major build up and visible hair growth.  

Are there any side effects? 

There are typically no side effects from the procedure. Your skin may feel slightly exposed and sensitive for 1-2 hours following. It is recommended that with any professional skin care service extended sun exposure is avoided for a minimum 24-hour period.

How to prepare for your dermaplaning treatment.

Your skin should be at a resilient state therefore, we ask that you refrain from using strong products or having other procedures on your skin prior to your dermaplaning service.   

  • Stop using AHA/ BHA/ Retin A/Vitamin A/Hydroquinone 24 hours prior to your service. These products may cause the skin to become sensitized. If you are using prescribed topicals, consult with your doctor.
  • Avoid waxing and shaving for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Arrive with a clean face if possible. Eye makeup and lip colour are fine.
  • Remove facial jewelry otherwise these areas may need to be avoided.

How long will I be in my appointment?  

dérmaPLANE alone requires 45 minutes – 1.15 hours of service. If you are a new guest to dérmica, you will need about 5 minutes to fill your intake form. Be mindful of parking and traffic in the community.

What is the after care?

Makeup is to be avoided for a 24-hour period as this can clog the pores and introduce bacteria. As with any professional skin care service, we recommend the use of quality products in order to preserve and prolong your dermaplaning results.
