August Special: The Dermaplane Facial

Does your “peach fuzz” bother you? Does your skin look dull, flaky, or dry? Is your make up not going on smoothly? If so, I would like to invite you to book a dermaplane facial treatment today! Using a sterile and disposable surgical blade, layers of dry, flaky, dead skin are gently scraped away with light, feathery strokes. This exfoliation will also remove the soft vellus hair that traps dirt, oil and make up on the skin’s surface. The old wives tale that “shaving” will cause the vellus hair to grow back thicker or more coarse is untrue of this specific type of hair! Dermaplaning is a safe and beneficial alternative to waxing, threading, chemical peels, and microdermabration. And, it is suitable for all skin types including ethnic, pregnant, sensitive, and rosacea. During the month of August, enjoy this treatment for only $55.00 (Regular price $75.00)

Choosing A Treatment

Macro/Micro Dermabration vs. Chemical Peeling

Which one is better? The answer lies within your skin type and lifestyle.


Dark skin type

I do not suggest micro/macroderm or chemical peels for Fitzpatrick skin types V- VI. These darker skin types are at a higher risk for possible hyperpigmentation from the treatment. If you are a Fitzpatrick type IV- VI, I suggest starting in your home with a medical grade skin care line that has alpha hydroxy acids. For professional treatments start with enzyme peels or the herb peel. Gradually, your skin will create a tolerance for stronger treatments. 


Acneic Skin Type

I prefer using salicylic and glycolic type chemical peels because these acids help slow skin oil production, lighten pigmentation, dry up active lesions as well as encourage skin cell turnover. However, some of my clients do not feel comfortable with the flaking of skin you can experience 5-7 days after a chemical peel. With consistent treatments macrodermabration can clear problem skin, and without any visible downtime. Because waves of acne tend to come every four weeks, I suggest booking your appointment every 28 days for best results.
