What will dermaplaning do for my skin? 

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

How does dermaplaning 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.  

When will I notice my results? 

A: 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.  

Q: Are there any side effects? 

A: 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.

Dérmica offers a selection of skincare services for all skin types.

We’d like to be part of your skincare regimen! Dérmica offers multiple skincare services to meet your needs.


FACIALS

Extractions during a facial.

Facials are a great way to keep your pores clean and free of oil or impurities that can cause breakouts. We recommend booking a facial every 4-6 weeks.


CHEMICAL PEELS

dermica peels

Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation because they accelerate the cell turnover rate by chemically penetrating beneath the surface of the skin to dissolve away dead skin cells. If you are treating a concern, such as sun damage, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 4-8 sessions.


PHOTOFACIALS

Photofacials use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology to diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and other textural damage. We recommend 4-6 treatments when treating the above skin concerns.


PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE AT HOME

Professional treatments should go hand in hand with clinical grade skincare products that will help to maximize results. This is why we offer 15% OFF all Glo Skin Beauty products in-store with any of the treatments above.
