At Elite Image Studio, we want to help you put your best face forward. That is why we offer a variety of skin care services, such as facials and dermabrasion. One of these services is dermaplaning. If you have never heard of dermaplaning, it may sound intimidating, but it is actually a simple and quick procedure that, when done by a professional, causes no pain or damage to the skin.

Dermaplaning is a strategy used to exfoliate the skin on your face. The esthetician uses a small scalpel to scrape the dead skin cells and peach fuzz off of your face, leaving smoother and brighter skin behind. Not only does this make your skin look flawless, it also makes it much easier to apply makeup and skincare products. This is a great option if you want the benefits of a chemical peel, but do not want to expose yourself to the chemicals, which is why it is recommended to pregnant women. Dermaplaning can be used on all skin types, though if you have acne, we recommend that you wait until your breakout has cleared up.

First, your Elite Image Studio esthetician will cleanse and dry your face. Then, they will hold your skin taut and use a 10 gauge scalpel to softly scrape the peach fuzz and dead skin cells from your face. The process generally does not take longer than 30 minutes, and is completely painless. Think of it like shaving! After dermaplaning, your skin should be brighter, smoother, and more even for about a month until your next treatment.
