THE SKIN-SMOOTHING POWER OF DERMAPLANING
For clients seeking a cost-effective, non-invasive treatment to revitalize and refresh the appearance of aged, fuzzy, or sun-damaged skin, the Essence Of L Medi Spa team is pleased to offer customizable dermaplaning treatments.
Dermaplaning, is an exfoliating treatment that helps to “refinish” the top layers of the skin through a method of controlled surgical scraping. This gentle, yet powerful technique softens and smoothes the skin’s texture and appearance, helping to reveal radiant healthier glowing skin!

YOUR DERMAPLANING EXPERIENCE
Dermaplaning is a quick, painless treatment that should not produce any redness or skin irritation, and can be customized into a full facial treatment. During your procedure, which will take place in the comfort of our beautiful boutique style facility in White Rock, BC, we will use a ‘butter-blade’ scalple to carefully exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair (vellus hair, “peach fuzz”). Because of the fine, soft structural composition of vellus hair, removing it will not make it grow in thicker or coarser.
Once your session is complete, you can immediately return to your normal activities—amazing your friends and family with your clear, glowing, revitalized skin! To maximize and extend your skin-smoothing results, you may schedule periodic dermaplaning maintenance treatments at 3-4 week intervals.
This treatment can be performed on its own, or in conjunction with any of our facial rejuvenation procedures, and has been shown to improve the efficacy of complementary services, such as a chemical peel, dermapen or BBL photofacial by facilitating a deeper and more even penetration.
